Holidays to Kusadasi

Sitting pretty on Turkey’s west coast, you’ll discover the sun-soaked beach resort of Kusadasi. Once a tiny fishing village, it’s transformed over the years into a popular destination but has still managed to keep much of its character and personality. With eight beautiful beaches, bustling bars, and a chic marina on offer, it’s easy to see why it’s so popular with families, couples, and groups of mates. Kusadasi holidays still have a traditional feel; take in the authentic atmosphere as you stroll through the cobbled streets of the old town, and experience the buzzing bazaar. This will show you a slice of local life as well as give you a chance to haggle for some bargains. A short way beyond the resort, you’ll have the chance to explore one of the region’s most popular historic attractions: the ancient city of Ephemus.

Holidays to Kusadasi are all about the beaches for many visitors. And whether you want to relax in a tranquil spot with a book in hand, or try your hand at watersports, there’s plenty to keep you happy. If you’re travelling with the kids, they’ll love playing around in the sand. But if you fancy a change of scenery, there’s always the nearby waterparks. Kids and grown-ups alike will love splashing around in the pools and riding the slides. Love a bit of history? You’re in luck, because you’re just a short trip away from a fascinating ancient city that’s waiting to be explored.

Kusadasi’s enviable position on the Aegean Coast means you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches. There are eight to choose from, including popular Downtown Beach (tucked between the marina and the harbour), Long Beach (which is 18km long) and Kustur Beach (an idyllic spot 3km from the town centre). If you’re looking for watersports action, Ladies’ Beach (not just for ladies) is the place for you.

When it comes to things to do with kids on holidays to Kusadasi, it’s easy to keep them busy. If they love splashing around, you won’t want to miss out on a trip to Aqua Fantasy waterpark, which is only a 15-minute drive from the resort. When you get back to town, you can grab a bite at one of the many family-friendly pubs.

Beyond the beautiful beaches and bustling waterparks, Kusadasi’s other attractions may surprise you. The resort is just half an hour away from Ephesus, an ancient Greek city that was once home to the Temple of Artemis (one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World). You’ll find classical columns, stunning statues and an impressive amphitheatre here. Kusadasi is also surrounded by beautiful national parkland. Kalamaki National Park is a protected area brimming with lush scenery and rate animals, so why not explore on foot or from the comfort of a 4x4 tour?
