Action and adventure in Icmeler
Although Icmeler has retained its rustic charm over the years and many parts remain untouched from the resort’s quaint fishing history, there is also an abundance of activities that holidaymakers can get up to here. Like many places along the Turquoise Coast, Icmeler holidays are a haven for divers thanks to the colourful underwater life which is hidden beneath the surface, including reefs, marine wildlife, and shipwrecks. Other adventurous activities on offer include cruises around the coast and day trips to Rhodes in Greece on one of the many fast boat trips which come and go regularly between the two towns. Icmeler Beach is one of three beaches surrounding the resort, including Sedir Island and Marmaris Folk Beach. At Icmeler you can try your hand at a range of exhilarating water sports, including parasailing, jet skiing, pedalos, and banana boats rides, all perfectly suited to the warm, breezy weather of the region.
Get the traditional Turkish treatment
It’s easy to see why the one and only Cleopatra chose Icmeler as her holiday destination of choice. The ancient queen was known for living in the lap of luxury and today the resort still lives up to its reputation as a lavish location. The best way to immerse yourself in the pampering treatment that the region is so well known for is to visit a traditional Turkish spa or a hammam. Not only do these elegant spa centres leave you feeling refreshed and looking great, they also offer an insight into the authentic culture of the country. There are plenty of popular hammams scattered throughout Icmeler, some of which are hundreds of years old. Roman style bath houses, small steam rooms, and rejuvenating olive oil massages are what you can expect for a luxurious day trip to an Icmeler hammam.
