Jump into an off-road 4x4, and you’ll be ready to leave modern civilisation behind on this tour. A team of clued-up local drivers will be at the controls, and they’ll make a beeline for the mountains over Marmaris’ shoulder. Your eyes will be glued to the picture book landscape as you delve deeper into Turkey’s rural side, and you’ll stop at a mosque and a traditional village on the way. The main event on this tour, though, is the beach at Kizkumu. Legend has it that a love-struck maiden walked into the sea with a skirt full of sand, filling up the water so that she could walk across to the man she pined for. Bring your swimming gear along, and you can follow the narrow shallow strip into the middle of the sea. Once you’ve had your fill of sunlounging, you’ll be driven back to the port in Marmaris.
