Turunc is a gorgeous and picturesque beach resort of Marmaris hidden away in a wonderful bay on the southern coast of Marmaris, next to the popular beach resort Icmeler. A must see destination. 20 km. south of the large tourist resort of Marmaris and 120 km. from the airport of Dalaman, this village has steadily grown to accommodate holidaymakers, but has somehow still kept it’s relaxed and charming atmosphere of the small fishing village it once was. It has a superb Blue Flag (ecologically sound) beach nestled in between rolling forested hills and mountains and has an azure and calm sea, over which more hills can be seen on the other side of the bay.
The crooked road with ramps and downhills to Turunc is very exciting with the forest area, hills and beautiful landscape along the Marmaris Gulf. After an half an hour trip you will suddenly see Turunc behind the hills by the seaside with a wonderful view. The sea has all variations of the blue colour. The hills behind the village are covered with pine trees. The region also has a huge variety of fruits and covered with pomegranate, berry, fig, plum, locust and sour orange trees. "Turunc" is the Turkish name for "Sour Orange" and the village's name comes from its quality of sour oranges.
Being an old fisherman village, Turunc, is also a very popular pit-stop for the yachts and blue voyagers. You may see lots of anchored yachts and boats in the night and the restaurants are full of visitors. The Turunc Cove has a blue flag which means the beaches and the sea are in great condition, has infrastructure for the yachts and clean.
