Marmaris National Park

Marmaris National Park

We decided to sleep in after yesterday’s long day. At least we tried to. Unfortunately, our Airbnb is located right next to a mosque, so we were woken up at 6AM, but luckily, we managed to fall back to sleep. The day really didn’t start until noon as it was raining off and on all morning.

Went for home cooked meal at a lokantasi for under $10, and decided to check out the Marmaris National Park that I found on Google Maps this morning.

The park is about a 10-minute walk from the Netsel marina.

The section of the park that was accessible to us on foot was quite small, but it did offer a reprieve from the town. It is unclear if there’s a fee to access the park because we walked by an unmanned booth.

The entire trip to the park only took about an hour, but it was a nice little getaway from the hubbub.
