Situated 1 hour 45 minutes from Dalaman airport, Orhaniye is on the Bozburun Peninsula near to Marmaris and is a little piece of paradise. Protected by laws against mass tourism, the area retains its natural charm of olive tree covered hillsides harbouring pretty rustic villages. Whilst down around the bay are a handful of hotels, villas and apartments as well as small private beaches just perfect for catching the rays. With the second largest marina outside of Marmaris, Orhaniye attracts some stunning yachts and boats, and also offers lazy day at sea gulet cruises.
With a handful of restaurants and cafe’s, the choice of food varies from traditional Turkish to international cuisine all served in a simple setting around the bay.
This is a wonderful location and nothing like its closest main resort of Marmis. But if you fancy a day of action, they you can easily take a day trip across the bay.
Summer Season (May to October)
With a year round climate very much like California, you won’t be disappointed in the weather. July and August are the hottest months average temperatures of around the mid 30’s. Although May and October are cooler (mid 20’s) they are most pleasant for sunbathing or exploring the local area.
