Overview map

The first half of the route follows the road out of the village as far as the Loryma Hotel where there are stunning views over the whole of Turunç bay. During the season there is a terrace cafe/bar here making an ideal place for a refreshment break. From the hotel the route passes the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Physics (ITAP) and the International Academy of Marmaris (IAM) - most unexpected residents of Turunç! The route now joins a mountain track following the side of the mountain until dropping down to Turunç Cemetery and a walk along the water front back to the starting point. The mountain track is rough but not difficult although the descent to the cemetery is a bit of a scramble.

The walk was lovely and the instructions very good until you pass the ravine where we ended up rambling down the side of the mountain for about 30 minutes before finding the cemetery. This part I would rate as an intermediate walk and the scrambling was quite a challenge. All in all a great walk but tough descent

Walked this route again this year (2018) - many large fallen trees now cover the path once you leave the Icmeler track heading for the cemetery. Expect to do some tree climbing!
