National Park

If you prefer more serenity, head for Dilek Peninsula National Park, known locally as Milli Park about 28 km (17 miles) from Kusadasi.

The ideal place to escape to is the well-merited national park (since 1960's) of Kalamaki in the "Dilek Peninsula". Located approx. 30 km South of Kusadasi, it is only 1-2 km far from the Greek island Samos.

The Kalamaki beaches count several bays of which the most important ones are Icmeler (1st bay and only sandy one), Kavakli and Karapinar. Winters are mostly rainy and summers dry. This explains that water sources are the main place where fauna gathers for drinking. The densest specie is the wild pig so do not be bewildered when you see a wild pig family wandering around in the afternoon.

Due to its clean environment, Kalamaki is also ideal for picnics. All necessary facilities have been thought of: water from the mountains, lavatory and picnic tables and benches. And while you walking around, according to the season, look at the various kinds of flowers in almost any colour and do hesitate to taste the wild strawberries.

To reach the National Park, you can take a minibus leaving at regular hours from the bus station (opposite the Friday Market) or join an organized tour. You will soon understand it is worth going!
