Marmaris National Park
Some species of trees here are endangered and only grow in areas that have a high humidity and heavy sand and other trees that are spread over a wide area include olive, arbutus, sumac, locust, oleander and laurel.
The protected areas of Gokova are rich in wild life such as bear, fox, wild pig, red squirrel, weasel, hedgehog, lynx, marten, wild goat and jackal, with a large variety of birds including eagles and falcons; it also plays host to many migrating birds. On the Kiran Mountain slopes north of Gokova Inlet there are concentrations of high quality forest and the protected area of the Bozburun Peninsula has remained mostly untouched due to the roads and transportation difficulties. The park also has regions of wetland, marshes and reed beds which are popular with different species of migrating birds.
Around the borders of the park there are beautiful quiet and unspoilt beaches, it is also close to popular Cennet Island, the Carian ancient cities of Physkos and Amos, it has areas for picnics and camping and “Horse Safari” tours are also available.
