Icmeler holidays – Party and relax, for the best of both worlds!
Once upon a time Icmeler was a sleepy fishing and sponge diver’s village. Today it’s much busier, a popular but still relatively small resort that’s protected from over-development, so still pretty. Icmeler holidays are a real treat for beach lovers, situated on a huge bay with a beach that reaches as far as Marmaris, eight miles away and a spectacular walk if you have the energy, but just minutes away by local bus, cab or water taxi.
There are loads of excellent water sports facilities, plenty of restaurants and bars and comparatively quiet night life compared to Marmaris with its 80 or more clubs. The beach is a beauty, shelving gently into the azure sea so safe for the kids, shingly and spotlessly clean. And the food is absolutely fantastic! It’s a wonderful destination for every taste, from groups to couples and families.
When to go to Icmeler
Holidays to Icmeler are at their best in May, June, September and October when it’s cooler and less crowded. But if you don’t mind fierce heat and humidity and enjoy large, lively crowds, choose July or August. It’s most expensive in the peak summer school holiday period, as you’d expect, but the climate is so lovely that either side of the summer holidays is almost as popular. And there are plenty of great deals available for winter holiday there, too.

Airport and transport need to know
From Britain you can fly direct to Turkey’s smart Dalaman airport from right across the country, from major and regional airports in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland including Cardiff, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow and a choice of London airports. Dalaman is the main airport for the region’s many splendid destinations including Fethiye and Akyaya, and you should find the checkout process reasonably fast and painless with plenty of shops, cafes and bars on-site.
The local buses run from the bus station six miles from the airport, but it takes roughly an hour and a half to transfer to the resort by road, costing around £18 return per person by shuttle bus and £140 per vehicle return for a private taxi carrying 1-4 people. There are plenty of cars for hire at the airport and if you choose to travel that way, remember to drive on the right. The scenery is spectacular but keep your eyes on the road – the locals love to drive fast!
