Selimiye, Marmaris

Turkey’s Aegean coast is magnificent and Selimiye is a great sample of it. It is untouched, calm, authentic and peaceful as it is not that easy to reach for many tourists. We followed the road from Marmaris to Bozburun and arrived there after 45 km. Selimiye is famous for its crystal clear water.  First we took a stroll on the road next to the beach and stopped by the authentic shops that sell handmade clothes, jewelry, pictures and so on. They are really unique and their modern and educated owners do not even insist on you to buy unlike the other touristic places in Turkey. Then we got hungry and saw a very cute pizza shop in the center, PizzaLa. We couldn’t take our eyes off the walls and lights until the tasty pizzas came. This place is highly recommended! There is also Mavi Pide, which offers a variety of delicious Turkish pide and has a great ambience as well.

It was time to swim afterwards but we didn’t know where to swim. Alongside the road, we saw many empty sunbeds and asked the people if we needed to pay for them. Nobody knew! We just put our bags and went into water. It was such an amazing feeling. To be in such a beautiful water without payment!

There are many supermarkets even that fancy MacroCenter. So you may grab your drinks and go to the beach to enjoy this perfect view. Many people come to Selimiye for boat tours and that’s what I plan for my next trip there.

Have fun!

 


Sozun Ozu:

Ege kiyilari harikadir bilirsiniz. Selimiye de Ege koylarinin sanina yakisir koylerden biri. Guzel korunmus, sakin, huzurlu ve otantik bi yer. Marmaris’ten 45 km uzaklikta Bozburun’a varmadan hemen once. Berrak deniziyle meshur bir yer ama ici de birbirinden guzel dukkanlari ve restoranlariyla bizim gonlumuzu fethetti. Bi yaninizda koye diger yaninizda sahile baka baka gideceginiz cok dar ve sevimli bir yolu var. O yol uzerinde bircok el yapimi kiyafetler, takilar, resimler satan ufak dukkanlari geze geze ilerleyebilirsiniz. Merkezde her restoran veya kafe oyle hos ki hangisine gireceginizi sasiriyorsunuz. PizzaLa’yi sectik biz en sonunda ve cok begendik. Icini oyle ince detaylarla suslemisler ki pizzalar gelinceye kadar her yerini inceledik. Pizzalari da cok basariliydi. Gidenlere oneririm. Bir de Mavi Pide var, yine kendine ozgu ve mekanini cok iyi suslemis ve korumus.

Sonra denize nereden girecegimize bakindik, sahil boyunca bircok bos sezlong vardi. Sorduk pek bilgi alamadik, biz de bok olanlara kurulduk. Kimse de gelip ne ucret ne rezervasyon istedi. Denizi gercekten de cok berrak ve serindi.

Yolda bikac migros ve hatta macrocenter gorduk biraz sasirarak. Gelen kitlenin tarzina uymak durumundalar tabi 🙂 Bicok tekne sahibinin/turlarinin ugrak yeri imis Selimiye. Biz de marketten iceceklerimizi alip sahilde manzaranin tadini cikardik.

Cok turist akinina ugramadan bi gidin derim.

Iyi gezmeler!
