The best place to run in Marmaris is along the extensive seafront promenade. The popular resort town, known for its beaches and nightlife, sits in a valley between pine-forested mountains and clear waters. The promenade runs for 9 km between the Marmaris marina and İçmeler Beach, featuring great views of the water & surrounding forests and mountains. It’s a festive scene, with lots of people, restaurants, and diversions.
The eastern end of path starts near the city center at the marina. Wind around the marina paths for 1 km, then continue past the Marmaris Castle on the main promenade path along Marmaris Beach. At the 5k mark, you’ll reach the Dolphin Park. Here, the path becomes more park-like and continues along Icon Beach and İçmeler Beach for another 4 km. At the end, there’s an option to run for another 1 km along the road to an observation deck.
Note: the beaches here are narrow, pebbly, and busy…not great for running!
