The largest yacht marina in Turkey
The port in Marmaris is surrounded on three sides by the old town, so it is ideal to see first the port and then delve the streets in the old part. In the west, so close to the promenade, anchor the cruise ships and it is the most busy here around 10 am and then at 6 pm , when trips start / end. Right next to it there is a huge yacht marina, reputedly the largest in the whole of Turkey. There is also a place where approximately every other day anchor massive cruise ships.
Moored boats differ from romantic barges up to luxury yachts of the highest category.

Transatlantic cruise ship
A great attraction for tourists are there huge ships that stop here on their circuits along southeastern Turkey and leave in the evening to arrive for example to Bodrum during the night.
