Besides being on the marina which is a nice place for a walking and enjoying picturesque scenes, it's also close to the bazaar, dancing fountain, and bar street thus it could be your starting point for all of these attractions

Just like any other square and not one of best squares of Marmaris for that matter. 19 May Youth Square is best square of Marmaris. It is centrally located and if you are roaming around you are bound to see it though nothing extraordinary.

An icon not to be missed, Stands in the centre of Marmaris Centre. A lot of special activities take place here to remember Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

After the bus shuttle drops you near this statue, it is a good navigation point as it is close the market and the marina and in walking distance of the bar street.
