About kusadasi

Kusadasi, which means "bird island", is set in a superb gulf on the west coast in the Aegean region of Turkey and is known for its turquoise waters, broad sandy beaches, bright sun and large marina with a capacity for 600 boats.

A glorious ancient city stands beside it, Ephesus with hundreds of thousands of visitors from tours each year. The town is not far from Adnan Menderes Airport, Izmir (only 80 km). Numerous holiday villages and hotels line its shores and hundreds of restaurants serve food from all around the world and, of course, Turkish Cuisine, which is one of the largest cuisines of the world.

Kusadasi, one of Turkey's principle holiday resorts, offers an excellent environment for an unforgettable holiday. Kusadasi has a typical Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters, providing tourism all year round and the city is bathed in sunshine for 300 days of the year.

Numerous powdery sandy beaches with warm clear waters, providing a peaceful atmosphere, allow a great variety of water and beach facilities. Windsurfing, water skiing, sailing and beach volley are only a few choices for the lovers of active life. After sunbathing restfully during the day, the city awaits the superb sunset. As the sun sets, the attractive cafes and restaurants through the palm-lined boulevard get busier.

It is a great delight to watch the comings and goings of the yachts and ships and the panoramic views of the sunset with a pre-drink before the dinner. The restaurants, serving a variety of fresh seafood and fish and Aegean specialties, offer a delicious meal in Kusadasi. Dancing and entertaining at a lively bar or a night club until dawn, may end an ideal day in Kusadasi.

Bar Street and The Old Town in the centre of Kusadasi are famous for their nightlife, one can have a very lively night in Bar Street or a quiet and tranquil night in The Old Town Area.

Many shops do a brisk trade with passengers from the many cruise liners that dock for a day or two, allowing enough time for a trip to Ephesus and a shopping expedition.

The tiny G├╝vercin Adasi (Pigeon Island) is connected to the mainland with a causeway. Its romantic setting includes a well-maintained flower garden which surrounds the restored 14th or 15th century fortress housing a restaurant and disco frequented by lovers or those hoping to find one by the night's end.
