Icmeler with children

Hi, I am thinking of booking a holiday to Turkey this year in the summer holidays and was looking at Icmeler. Is this a nice family friendly resort? What is the beach like?

We have 2 children aged 7 and 10, is there much for kids in Icmeler?

Thanks for any answers

Hi MinnieB176

the resort of icmeler is lovely and family friendly

i ve been many many times, with children from when they were very young up to now 19/14

the beach is nice full of sunbeds for about £1 a day or some offer free as some are linked to the bars/hotels so you can order from them.

the beach itself is of small shingle stone.

if you have'nt booked hotel yet book one with entertainment team so kids will have more options.

We used to stay at the grand aquarium which has entertainment , this was self catering or their are plenty of all inclusives along the beach which have that.

thier are trips the kids will like , buggy safari, jeep safari, water park in marmaris on the hill, boat trips,

. you will find plenty to keep them occupied.

if you need anymore info please ask.

Thanks, I will have a look at the Grand Aquarium. We would rather self catering than all inclusive.

You will also find the restaurants are very welcoming to children and many have a separate children's section on the menu. As the others have said Icmeler is a very friendly family resort and you should find plenty of trips that will suit your children.

Not sure what kids do these days but last year there was a bouncy castle Im sure outside the Prince apartments near the beach. There are plenty of small playparks around the resort although Im guessing your 10 may be a bit old for this. The beach is not great to be honest, its all small shingle stones. The water is lovely however and they may enjoy snorkelling if they are able to swim, the current is not strong.

In Marmaris there are several waterparks which are great and never really that busy and some aprtments have water slides, Ekinici Palace for example which is also quite well priced. I think Badadan also has a water slide

Hi, I have to agree Grand Aquarium is great for kids of all ages & adults. The entertainment team are superb & will keep em going all day and all evening. We are going back again in August this year with our 14 year old son. He didn't want to go anywhere else as he made loads of friends and I must say have never seen him laugh and dance as much. The food is also superb. I can honestly say we cannot fault the Grand Aquarium and can't wait to go back.
