After new changes to Marmaris this year with all the road works, new park, new landscaping, musical fountain square, and new promenade along the Marmaris public beach area; we find that there is also some more news to the changes made for the Marmaris public beach in the city centre.
You aren’t obligated to pay for sunbeds anymore at the Marmaris public beach. You won’t have umbrellas there either. These are the new public beach rules. Nor will you have washrooms available or showers present on the beach nearby. How far along the beach does this apply? It is all the way to the Pizza Pizza restaurant – just before Long Beach.
The beach is open to the public, but you need to bring your own beach gear, towels, umbrellas and sunbed (if you wish to carry it). There are both good and bad feedback on this change. The kiosks are still operating where they offer snacks, other foods, ice cream and beverages.
For years the Marmaris public beach has been allowing for paid sunbeds, food and drink services provided by the kiosks situated at various points along the promenade. These kiosks have been attending to the service of selling the sunbeds as well as any food or drinks that visitors at the beach wish to buy. Now there are only the kioks and not a single sunbed or umbrella on the beach. All you will see now are scattered sunseekers on the sand laying on their towels – just like the way Marmaris was decades ago.
How will this affect Marmaris tourism? Has this risen any concern for those who are selling water sports activities at the beach? Do you think that not having the sunbeds there is a good or not a good decision made?
