Visit the official Sarigerme website for full and up-to-date information on Sarigerme:

The actual village, formally known as Osmaniye, has traditional shops, eateries, and a drop-dead gorgeous beach, and it has everything needed for a classic sun and sand holiday. Sarigerme becomes lively during the summer, with eight significant hotels attracting holidaymakers from Europe. And there are more Hotels to come. There is a main street with boutiques, restaurants, and shops.

Sarigerme is not your typical over-commercialised tourist holiday destination; it is far from it. Sarigerme is on the Mediterranean Coast.

The beach and the tiny village of Sarigerme (Osmaniye) provide an insight into natural, cultural Turkey and the beauty and traditions that accompany it. It lost its Village Status in April 2014 and is now a neighbourhood of Ortaca Town.

Shops in Sarigerme and nightlife

Sarigerme is the beach’s name, not the place’s name. For some reason, the name ”Osmaniye” became known as Sarigerme in the Tourism sector. The actual Village, where all the shops and amenities are, is about 850 meters from Sarigerme Beach.
The Village is twenty minutes from Holiday Village, Tui resort, and 25 minutes from Hilton Dalaman Hotel. All all-inclusive Hotels, such as Hilton Dalaman Spa Resort, Magic Life, Seno Imperial, and Tui Blue Sarigerme Park, are scattered around the beach side of the village. There are no detailed maps of Sarigerme as it is a tiny place, yet despite its size this small place, it has everything one can need whilst on Holiday.

Sarigerme Beach
The beautiful sanded beach stretches around with its seven kilometres of coastline, and the clear and clean sea offers visitors many choices for adventurous water sports. You’ll love the beach whether you’re here as a family or a couple. The attractive sandy beach hosts water sports and sunbeds and has a shady wooded picnic area and a cafeteria, perfect for sunbathing. The refreshing breezes make it better for sailing. This beach is ideal for small children and for those who need accessibility. The Public Beach of Sarigerme has all the necessary facilities, from Showers to WC and changing cabinets. The beach is immaculate and well looked after by the local staff. The cafeteria serves hot snacks as well as cold and hot beverages. During summer, lifeguards are on duty between certain hours; please check up on your arrival. Please be aware that there is a charge at the entrance. So bring some Turkish currency with you.


Nearby Towns
Sarigerme also seems like a place in Middle Earth, far from everywhere. Well, it may seem so, but the reality is far different. The nearest towns are Ortaca and Dalaman, about a 25-minute enjoyable ride away. Gocek, where all the Boat trips occur, is only 40 minutes away. A little further, such as Fethiye, would take you an hour. Dalyan, on the other hand, is 40 minutes away. You are not that far, after all, from these places. There are several villages around Sarigerme, each of which is worth visiting as each reflects the natural beauty of the local life. Such as Gokbel, Mergenli, Karadonlar, and Fevziye villages are about 20 minutes away from Sarigerme Village.


There is a Market every Sunday in Sarigerme Village, which is a purpose-built tourist market; it is a rip-off and Stall owners in the market can sometimes be pushy, annoying and rude- according to visitors. Most stall owners of the Sarigerme market are initially not from Sarigerme village; they come from different areas of the region. If you decide to go, you will notice that no local people shop in that market, because it is a purpose-built tourist market.

Regarding other markets, they are all the same, as the same salespeople moving around, from one town to another, so don’t think you would be better off visiting one market than the other.
The Fethiye Market, which takes place every Tuesday, seems the biggest. Visitors to this market are locals and tourists—a relatively big market with plenty of eateries, toilets, etc. The others would be Koycegiz Market on Mondays and Ortaca Market on Fridays, where the primary shoppers are locals.

Market Days in the area :

  • Mondays in Koycegiz
  • Tuesdays n Fethiye
  • Wednesdays in Dalaman
  • Thursdays in Mugla
  • Fridays in Ortaca
  • Saturdays in Dalyan

If you wish to visit and experience an excellent local market, we suggest you consider the Market in Ortaca Town, which takes place every Friday (the alternative would be the Mugla Market). It is straightforward to get there from/to Sarigerme as the last stop for the Dolmushes leaving from Sarigerme to Ortaca is dropping you off next to the Market at the Ortaca Bus Station.
Flag a Dolmush (see transportation page on the website: ) whenever you wish to go. The journey takes about 30 minutes; get off at the last stop, which is Ortaca’s bus station. The marketplace is next to the Bus Stop.
Visit the Market and shops in the Town; when you need to return to your Hotel, go to the Bus station and get the dolmush back to Sarigerme.
Dolmushes (shuttle buses) from Sarigerme to Ortaca operating from 8 am to 8 pm

Shuttle Mini Buses (Dolmush) run every Half Hour through the Village, starting from Hilton and Holiday Villages to Sarigerme Public Beach and to Ortaca Town, Dalaman Town, and visiting villages on the way.
You must know that you have to pay in Turkish Lira for the Taxi or Dolmush and not in foreign currency; if you choose to pay in foreign currency, do not expect to receive a change from an up-to-date rate.
Suppose you wish to go to Ortaca Town from Sarigerme Village, Flag down a Dolmush passing by with a sign on the windscreen saying ORTACA. With this Dolmush, you can get to Ortaca for less than one sterling or euro; the same goes for Dalaman Town.

All you need to do is, stand on the roadside when you see one coming flag down. They frequently run, usually every half an hour, if you wish to know when the next one is, ask a local Person.

Dolmushes pass through Sarigerme Village; you can not miss it. But, if you stay at the Hilton, TUI Hotels, Palace, Subtopia Tropical Hotels, or Holiday Village, you can catch a shuttle from Main Gate. Every 30 minutes Dolmush are available at the front of the Hotel.
Please be aware that reckless, irresponsible driving is typical among taxi drivers, do not hesitate to warn the Taxi Driver if necessary.


Wedding Ceremonies, formal or informal, are performed by the Tour operators, such as First Choice and Tui, at the Hotel you are staying in. This needs to be pre-booked in advance with them directly. Hotels do not have such a service.

Weddings at the holiday village can only be added onto a booking made through first choice; it normally costs around £400 to add the wedding package to the holiday booking. The wedding package comprises:

Planning and Administration
Wedding Ceremony
Bouquet and Buttonhole (very Basic and white)
Marriage Certificate
Wedding Cake
Sparkling Wine

Then compulsory charges need to be paid for in the resort. These are

£300 for a taxi to the British Consulate
£150 per couple in Turkish Lira to have your documents translated into Turkish and stamped.

Before travelling to Turkey, Bride and Groom need to apply at their Local Registry Office for a Certificate of No Impediment (a certificate to prove both people are legally ok to be married). This needs to be taken to turkey along with full-length birth certificates (originals) and 5 Passport sized photos per person (good ones as they are attached to your marriage certificate)
The first choice is to ask for these documents to be faxed before travel so they can check them.. (if either person has been married before, other paperwork needs to be obtained)

On arrival at the holiday village, a letter is posted to your room with a date and time to meet the wedding coordinator to discuss the extras that can be purchased, go through the details of the wedding day and explain the trip to the City of Izmir to the British Consulate. The trip to Izmir is a very long day; people will want to share a taxi to keep costs down; please note this is a normal-sized car, and it is very cramped with four adults. Please do not agree to share with another couple. It is not worth it.

Witnesses cannot be related to the Bride or groom; if you do not have any witnesses, plenty of reps dress up for the occasion and will do it free of charge.

The hotel offers a Free wedding dress and suits pressing service for the bride and groom; it’s worth it to take the stress of worrying about creased dresses etc.

The wedding reception can be held in a private restaurant with various menus, and the wedding coordinator gives you plenty of time to choose.

Extras, including hairdressers and photography, are done with the wedding coordinator; use the hotel’s hairdresser, who can be Photo packages starting from £300; this includes a disc with over 150 pictures on it and an album with 20 images.

You can bring a cd with any music you would like to walk down the aisle to and dance to as the wedding coordinator cannot guarantee that they will have them; make a cd that lasts one hour as you have the wedding gazebo for around one hour.

In addition to the Big all-inclusive Hotels, the smaller hotels are located in the village, such as Sevgi Hotel, Han Hotel, Sarigerme inn, and Dolphin Aparts.

One of the musts is Dalyan’s natural mud springs and Iztuzu beach, a nesting place for protected loggerhead turtles. 12 Island Boat trip for a beautiful day out within the Bay of Gocek is something you need to do before your holiday is over. Please visit the excursions pages on this site for more information.

Restaurants and Shops are for tourist purpose only and does not reflect the local style in any way, hence the reason why they shut as soon as the season finishes to re-open when the tourist starts to arrive. Prices are expensive compared to places where locals prefer to go. This may not play an important factor as long as you can afford it; however, when it comes to shops, the story can be a little more serious, especially when spending money on valuable items such as jewellery and expensive watches. To avoid becoming a statistic, one should shop with long-established businesses rather than seasonal shops.
