While we were staying in Marmaris I wanted to see some history and beautiful local places. I come across Marmaris Castle which was about a 40 minute walk along the beach or 5 minute taxi (we did taxi as was far too hot) Situated at the top of Marmaris old town was this love little castle. The castle has had to have some work done to it, meaning you can see where it has been re-made but there are lots of historical artefacts to see in the museums and huge marble statues, plus some of the old ruins still there.
It was very cheap to go in around about £3 per adult and older children. We had to leave the pushchair at the entrance as there are lots of steep steps so it wasn't the easiest walking around with Cassius trying to run off.
The views of the hills of Marmaris and the sea were just stunning. I definitely recommend a visit if you can.
The town was very pretty too, we stopped for a drink at this beautiful Thai style bar (my favourite) it has a little wooden swing the girls loved, lovely coffee & cocktails, a water feature and a poole table which the girls and jaime played a few games on. It was called Budha Shisha Bar and they were so good with the children they even brought us some crisps, nuts and watermelon.
Right outside this was some little shops full of gifts and jewellery of the Turkish eye, and in the middle was the most amazingly hung white dreamcatchers and Turkish eyes. It was worth a visit just to walk this.
We also noticed all the drains dotted around on the floor had pebbles and the Turkish eye in them which I loved! If you go see how many you can spot!
