Içmeler is surrounded by cool, clear mineral springs, named from the Turkish verb 'Içmek' which means 'to drink'. Set at the foot of the pine-clad Palamut Hills, which encircle the bay, Içmeler offers the best of both worlds; from a beach and pool-style holiday to an excellent range of shops, bars and restaurants. And yet it still hasn't lost its traditional way of life.
A variety of boat trips run from the seafront:
Further afield, boat trips take you to
Further trips, including jeep safaris and white water rafting, are also available.
In summer, mini-markets sell imported food as well as a wide range of local produce, including reasonably priced Turkish wines, beer, cigarettes, fruit juices, fruits and vegetables. Essential items such as baby products (powdered milk, nappies, etc.) and toiletries (shampoos, sun lotions, etc.) are available.
Icmeler's weekly market offers an array of products including food, drink, clothes, shoes, bags and jewellery. Held every Wednesday, be prepared to bargain!
Içmeler is not a clubbing resort, but there are plenty of bars, disco bars and restaurants. However, those who want a taste of nightlife can take a minibus or taxi to Marmaris. Icmeler's only nightclub is 'Pleasure'.
Really! Believed to be the world's first beachfront ice skating rink!
