Holidays in Kusadasi

Kusadasi is one of the most colourful resorts on the coast, where the white-gold sand runs between polka-dot beach umbrellas, green palms and the deep turquoise of the ocean. Beyond the beach is the area’s huge national park, a beautiful natural backdrop to the ancient cities that have survived for thousands of years. See the Temple of Artemis, go hiking in the hills or take the kids to see the dolphin shows at Seapark.

Book a morning tour of Kusadasi’s famous ancient sights, and experience for yourself the thousand-year-old treasures still standing today. Relax at the main beach, and keep the kids busy at the marina with a sailing trip. On hot days, cool off at the local water park with its lazy river, lagoon and different rides, or head off into the great outdoors to ride horses or spot cheetahs in the national park. In the evenings, pick from local Turkish restaurants or favourites like pizzerias, then grab a cold drink on the waterfront and watch the sun go down.

Kusadasi’s enviable Aegean Coast location provides superb beach options for visiting sun-worshippers. With over eight to choose from, you can spend a day relaxing with the sounds of the sea in an intimate little bay, or head to a main beach to be close to bars, cafes and changing rooms. Enjoy a high-octane afternoon of zipping across the water on a jet ski, before stretching out under a brightly-coloured parasol for some much-needed rest. The best places to go in Kusadasi for lunch or drinks are right on the seafront, so you can stay put all day.

There are plenty of things for kids to do on a holiday to Kusadasi, with lots of active sports and activities like horse riding or sailing for the adventurous. The resort is well-located for different day trips, with attractions like Aqua Fantasy water park just a 15 minute drive away. Seapark has quickly become a family favourite, where you can meet dolphins in their Dolphin Pool. Kusadasi is known for its exciting nightlife, and there are lots of good family-friendly pubs to relax in, plus a top choice of international restaurants that will please even the fussiest eaters.

Although known for its quality beaches, the other attractions in Kusadasi may surprise you. The resort is just 30 minutes from Ephesus, the ancient Greek city once home to the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The area is packed with fascinating historical gems, and there are lots of tours available to help you see the sights. Beyond the ancient sites, Kusadasi is also surrounded by famous national parkland. Kalamaki National Park is dense with lush scenery and rare animals, and is a fun place for a jeep tour or walking trip.
