You won’t want to forget your swimming gear, as you embark on a boat trip around Marmaris’ pretty coves. A bus will whisk you across to the town’s old docks, where you’ll board a traditional, twin-masted wooden boat – known locally as a gulet. From here, things can be as active or laid back as you like. You can bag a spot on the deck to catch a few rays, or leap into the striking blue water when the skipper drops anchor in a sheltered bay. The wave-free inlets are ideal for a gentle swim, and you’ll dry out in no time once you’ve clambered back aboard. Keep an eye out for the mysterious Blue Cave on your way back to the harbour, where a coach will be waiting to take you back to the ship.
