Surrounded by lush green hilltops that parallel the harbor, Marmaris is one of the most popular vacation hot spots in Europe, and possibly the world. Since its recent face-lift, the city has become a major attraction in entertainment, nightlife, dining, excursions and simply a peaceful get-a-way by local and foreign tourism alike. If you have booked a Marmaris blue cruise holiday, you are most likely going to have an overnight stay on board your yacht rental in the harbor.
The harbor itself is a true delight. Colorful, entertaining and offers so much to do and see. From fine restaurants that line the waterfront, a long promenade by the beach, that stretches all the way to the next town of Icmeler, and the shopping district with an array of shop that offer many treasures to buy for you to take back home.
Therefore, before you begin your week-long blue cruise yacht charter holiday, stroll around the city center and have a look around. However, there is one place, quite new in Marmaris, that is a certain must-see.
In the later part of 2011, the city began works to give Marmaris a more modern, clean, and attractive look. One of the many alluring projects, completed in May of 2012, was the now world famous, May 19 Youth Square; otherwise known as the Marmaris Musical Fountain Square. This stunning centerpiece became a hit from the day it was first presented and since then has been the number one attraction of Marmaris, by travelers from around the world.
This square can be seen in thousands of photos and videos taken by locals and tourists who have had the chance to view its awesomeness. The performance of this remarkable fountain square runs from the Spring all the way to the end of November, and plays every night. During the day you can see the fountain shine with the morning sun – a fantastic sight to see. However, once the sun goes down, it becomes one of the most colorful displays of water, dancing to the melodies of the music played. A 30-minute show, the fountain draws passersby as well as its fans who know about this radiant piece of exhibition.
All in all, a gulet cruise charter from Marmaris is a splendid choice, and even better is seeing the number one must-see, the Marmaris Musical Fountain Square.
