Kusadasi is situated in the Izmir Region on the west coast of Turkey, overlooking the Aegean Sea. Its weather is typical of the Aegean Coast, offering 300 days of sunshine every year and in peak season temperatures soar from between 30 to 35 degrees celsius.

Once an old fishing village, Kusadasi is now very European and modern, very much in the style of other Mediterranean holiday resorts like Dalaman and Fethiye. One of the main attractions for people spending their holidays in Kusadasi is Ladies’ Beach. A gorgeous beach of golden sand gently lapped by the Aegean Sea, it won’t take much more than a glance at this place to know where you will be spending the majority of your holidays in Kusadasi.

Family Fun in Kusadasi

A large proportion of the cafes, bars and restaurants line Ladies’ Beach, many offering wonderful sea views. In other words, you’ll never be far from a quick snack or a delicious meal in Kusadasi. Gently sloping, the beach is popular among families while Long Beach, Green Beach and Kadinlar Beach are also excellent places in which to soak up the sun.

For a short break from the sand, stop by any of Kusadasi’s three water parks, in particular Adaland, just outside the city, where you can see a dazzling dolphin show. Aqua Fantasy is just beyond this, about four miles from the city, where you will find slides such as the Black Tunner and the Cobra, while the smaller Long Beach Aqualand Resort is also a great place to visit. Every water park has free shuttle services from the town, meaning transport is convenient and light on your pocket.

History in Kusadasi

A visit to Kusadasi would be incomplete without a tour around Ephesus, which is the site of the ancient Temple of Artemis (completed as long ago as 550 BC) and which is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The site of numerous ruins including the Basilica of St. John, the Odeon theatre and the temples of Hadrian and Domitian, Ephesus is also important to Christians as it’s widely believed that the Gospel of John may have been written there.

The ancient Ionian city of Priene is about 23 miles from Kusadasi, built on what was formerly the coast of the sea, overlooking steep ocean slopes and terraces that rose to a height of more than 1,000 feet above sea level. Owing to changes in the landscape over the centuries, Priene is now an inland site, and well worth the visit for its remaining ruins.

Visit Kusadasi for a Taste of Turkey

A great destination for family travellers, Kusadasi has a little bit of everything including magnificent scenery and weather, a range of beaches, cultural attractions and lively, but not overwhelming, nightlife. Stop by the local fish market on the right of the port to find fresh catches of the day, and if you’re up for something truly relaxing, opt for a Turkish hamam or steam bath.
