Kusadasi on the Southern Aegean, in the province of Aydin is often described as the "Jewel of the Aegean". A modern cosmopolitan resort with a large selection of beaches catering to various tastes and requests. Currently Kusadasi boasts THIRTEEN Blue Flag beaches (2009 Results) along its 32 kilometre coastline; all beaches are easily accessible by Dolmus (Municipality mini bus service) for a minuscule fare.
Ladies Beach is the most popular beach in the area, with its tree lined promenade, with rows of cafes, bars, restaurants and beach clubs. The clear, clean waters of the Southern Aegean are ideal for diving, surfing, sailing, water parachute, water ski and fishing, these facilities are contributing to the increasing interest in the Long Beach area which starts a mere five kilometres (3 miles) from Centrum.
Enjoy sun, sand, sea and sarap (Wine) ………
For a pleasurable stroll, day or night I highly recommend the route from Kusadasi's landmark, Pigeon Island, past Scala Nuova Port Authority, Setur Marina and along to the junction for the main Izmir Road. This 2km (1.2 mile) route is dotted with public parks, Children's playgrounds, tea gardens, cafes, restaurants, ice cream parlours and bars ranging from Kusadasi's FIRST sea food Restaurant (Toros Restaurant) opened in 1894 to the recent additions of traditional style Turkish cafes bars, decorated in time-honoured fashion (scatter cushions, water pipes, Turkish rugs). Relax in any of these establishments and admire the glistening waters during the day or the lights from the anchored cruise liners, reflecting on the night sea or the bobbing masts of the 350 plus yachts anchored at Setur Marina, all under the ever watchful eyes of the statue of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish Republic, which sits on a hill overlooking the Kusadasi Bay Area.
Centuries ago Scala Nuova was the port of Ephesus and the main port of the Aegean region. “great modern Turkish sea-port which carries on a considerable trade with Egypt and the neighbouring districts and islands" (The Encyclopaedia of Geography: Comprising a Complete description of the Earth published 1839) Today, following privatisation in 2003 the port area is a Shoppers paradise with it’s stunning array of quality shops, cafes, bars etc. 1,174 vessels (boats and ships) transferred a total of 424,949 passengers to Scala Nuova Kusadasi’s Harbour in 2006. To explore the port area -just pass through the security check, most of the security Personnel speak English and will be happy to assist you. Or combine your stay in Turkey with a day trip to the Greek Islands of Samos aboard the daily ferry from Scala Nuova (1st April to 31st October please book in advance as during the summer season the ferries fill up very quickly).
Kusadasi’s Setur Marina is one of Turkey’s finest Marinas, the largest Marina on the Aegean and one of Turkey’s Blue Flag Marinas. Dry-dock, repair services, a Helicopter Helipad, laundry, market, tennis courts and swimming pool are all on site.
Enjoy a wonderful meal or a cocktail at the Messina Restaurant and get a view of Kusadasi usually reserved for the lighthouse.
If life at home has left you stressed or the aches and pains associated with the advances of time then consider a Turkish Bath (Haman) also useful to ensure an even suntan, the exfoliation and oil massage will prepare your skin and leave you relaxed and rejuvenated for your holiday. Alternatively enjoy a thermal bath, the Davutlar dolmus will drop you at Radon Thermal or Natur-med , bask in the waters, avail of the beauty treatments or just have a full body oil massage.
If slides, rides and dolphins interest you then you can choose between Aqualand with over 25 rides set in a 25 acre site on the outskirts of Kusadasi just opposite Kusadasi’s 10,000 capacity conference centre due to open Spring 2011. Or Aqua Fantasy which certainly lives up to its name. A trip to Adaland, described in the New York Post as one of the Top 10 aqua parks in the World with Dolphinpark or its 2008 addition - Seapark which is an interactive experience not to be missed.
Kusadasi is the fulcrum from which to explore a large selection of the historical sites in the Aegean region
The House of the Virgin Mary near Ephesus, this site is sacred for both Christians and Muslims (Muslims also believe in the virgin birth and honour Mary as the mother of the Prophet Jesus. Mary is the only female mentioned in the Koran by name). The House of the Virgin Mary (17km north of Kusadasi) has been visited by Pope Paul VI in 1967, Pope John Paul II in 1979 and Pope Benedict XV1 on 29th November 2006.
On your return, visit Ephesus, The Temple of Artemis (one of The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World), The Basilica of St. John the Apostle, The Grotto of Seven Sleepers,
The Citadel of Ayasuluk (Selcuk Castle) and Isa Bey Mosque constructed in 1374.
Other local sites of historical interest include Kusadasi's Caravanserai, Neopolis, Tire, Teos, Odemis, Birgi , Belevi Mausoleum, Didyma, Priene, Aphrodisias, Panionion, Cave of Zeus, Claros, Magnesia, Phygale, Miletus, Euromos, stop at Lake Bafa en route, Heraclea, Hierapolis, The Monastery of Kursunlu, Phygale and Notion.
Nature Lovers and Ornithologists will not be disappointed with a visit to National Park on Dilek Peninsula with its 27.675 hectares (68.357 acres) of park land, 28 species of mammals, 42 species of reptiles, 804 types of plants and 256 species of birds.
Wine Connoisseurs will certainly enjoy a trip to Sirince (cute) village, appropriately named, nestled in the shade of olive, orange, peach and fig trees on its hillside location. Traditional stone houses on the slopes provide superb views of the valley below which can be enjoyed while sipping a selection of locally produced organic fruit wines. Don’t leave the village without purchasing locally produced olive oil, olive oil soaps, local handcrafts, candles or some traditional Turkish souvenirs e.g. Nazar Boncuk (Evil Eye), these charms are hand-crafted from blown glass.
I strongly recommend a visit to Uzum Café / Restaurant from the minute you enter to the second you leave your senses will be satisfied.
