Picture pine-clad rolling hills tumbling onto golden sands and turquoise water. It all sounds like a description from a ‘Perfect Holiday’ guide but, clichés aside, Kusadasi really is a mini-paradise tucked away in the Turkish coast. It’s pretty, sunny and exciting and will keep even the fussiest holidaymakers happy. It’s not all sun, sea and sand in Kusadasi, the resort is also home to some amazing ancient sites and areas of outstanding natural beauty. The town has some fantastic neighbours making it a great place to stay if you want to venture along the Aegean coastline. Before you head off along the Aegean make sure you first check out everything that Kusadasi has to offer.
There may not be anything borrowed in Kusadasi but the sky is certainly very blue. If you want to make the most of the blue skies and seas the harbour in Kusadasi offers daily yacht tours that take visitors around the island for a sneak peak into the hidden coves and bays. As for the rest of the resort, Kusadasi has cleverly brought together the best of the old and the new to create an environment that feels both traditional and modern. It’s easy to take a short trip to explore the fortress on Pigeon Island or explore the ancient cobbled back streets of the town itself. Make sure you keep an eye out for the weekly Fish Market, if you get up early enough you can watch the fishermen bring in their catches and the market spring into life. The famous ancient site of Ephesus is just around the corner – definitely one for the tourist checklist – and the Dilek National Park is perfect for walkers and picnickers. The newer parts of the town can be found along the beach promenade. Here there is an abundance of restaurants and bars serving traditional Turkish mezes, a few home comforts and everything else in between. Kusadasi doesn’t have the night life of Alanya but visitors are encouraged to have a drink on the sand, under the stars.
