Two peninsulas jut out from Marmaris into the sea: * * The one extending towards southwest, '''Bozburun Peninsula''', has beautiful coves, pine covered mountains and villages. Especially interesting on this peninsula is '''Kızkumu''' (literally “Maiden’s Sand”), a sandbar that shuts the entrance of a cove almost completely. It’s located on the western shore of the peninsula, near Orhaniye village. Story has it that a young lady started to spill the sand she gathered into her skirt, while escaping foreigners on one shore of the cove, and also to meet her lover who was waiting at the opposite shore. But the sand hadn’t lasted enough for the entire gap of the cove, so when her sand ran out, in order not to be caught by the foreigners chasing her, she commited a suicide by jumping into the water. Scientists have another explanation, though. Kızkumu’s length is about 1 km, and the sand (or more like reddish finely grained pebbles) is only one ankle under the water surface all along the road, also its width is more than enough for 5 people to walk side by side, so you can easily walk on the top of it (as many other people do). Its ending point is signed by an easily-visible Ionian column, so don’t worry. ** On the other peninsula, stretching out to west, lies '''[[Datca]]''', a pleasant town, and the ancient city of '''Knidos''' on its tip. (''see [[Datca#See]]'')
* [[Akyaka]] about 20-25 min of driving in the north has a stony-but-beautiful beach, pine forests, and buildings that maintain a lovely local architecture.
