Photographer's Note

Not so long ago, Marmaris was an insignificant fishing village known and visited only by seafarers cruising the coasts of the Mediterranean. Marmaris's history stretches as far back as 3400 B.C. The first settlers to this region were named the Caria. Losing nothing in its natural appareance, to dam Marmaris has grown into a touristic paradise, with its center, suburbs and surroundings, the resort is literally alive 24 hours of the day.

Being one of the most important Yachting centers. in the Mediterranean, Marmaris is the perfect embarking point for nature related activities and excursions. A contrast of life and wild entertaining nights to peaceful sublime days spent in beautiful isolated coves. Marmaris presents its back to the pine forested hills honoured by Heredotus himself and is also known as the pearl of Turkey's southern coast hosting countless visitors from around world every year. Marmaris is due to be an eminent resort for the upcoming millenium. It is also in the center of leading historical and other natural sites. Dalaman Airport is merely 1 hour away from Marmaris. The cities and famous sites are accesible via local bus (Dolmus) of which most are possible to reach within a day. Rhodes can be visited by hydrofoil and only takes a surprising 45 minutes. Beautiful secluded coves are waiting to greet you with your own choice of yachts, be it a bareboat with fully equipped sails or a beautifully crafted gullet.
