Every summer, the southwestern coastal town of Marmaris attracts about 400,000 tourists who come to enjoy the scenery, nice beaches, marinas, quiet bays and explore the ancient ruins.
Although Marmaris is very popular in the summer, it is quite a small town with a low population during the rest of the year so it doesn’t have it’s own airport. The nearest airport to Marmaris is Dalaman International Airport, which lies 90 km (56 miles) from Marmaris. The airport has banks, facilities for exchanging money, restaurants and shops. The address is ATM Dalaman International Airport, 48780 Dalaman, Muğla. Tel: +90 (0252) 792 5555. It’s website is: www.atmairport.aero
There are two bus companies that provide transfers from the airport to Marmaris for a reasonable price, these are Muttaş and Havaş. Bus times are linked to incoming flights. The journey between Dalaman and Marmaris takes around 90 minutes depending on traffic and costs 25 Turkish Lira, equivalent to 3.80 Euros. Taxis are more convenient but obviously more expensive.
