Kusadasi, Turkey Cruises

One of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, Kusadasi is a vibrant, lively and eclectic port town that's a favourite stop on Mediterranean cruises as the gateway port to Ephesus. With plenty of unique culture to experience in Kusadasi itself though, and some of the country's best shopping to enjoy too, this is a wonderful year-round destination in its own right.

Sightseeing in Kusadasi

Kusadasi has made its name in the tourist industry for being a pretty little seaside town overlooking the Aegean Sea. Aside from its beautiful beaches and great weather all year round, the port has plenty to entice sightseers as well. Its history boasts relics from Christian rule that are perfect sightseeing on a tour, as well as Turkish markets, mosques and some quaint fishing villages not far away. To get the most out of your stopover in Kusadasi, here are some ideas for places to see that aren't too far from the port:

Kusadasi Fortress

This small fort was once the first lookout and defensive point for the town. You can reach the fort by a small causeway, and it's easy to get to from the port area. The fortress itself is often kept locked, but the island it sits on is a popular visitor location and the ideal setting for a picnic overlooking the town.

Adaland

Just north of the port, and easy to get to by main road, Adaland is a fun-filled aquapark that makes a great destination for a family trip. As well as the usual slides and rides, Adaland is also home to a dolphin park and sea park which give visitors the chance to see some of Turkey's beautiful aquatic wildlife up close.

Belediye Hamami

Nothing screams Turkey more than a traditional Turkish bath, and the Hamams at Belediye have over 600 years' experience in this popular therapeutic treatment. Cool marble spaces away from the outdoor heat make this the perfect place for a relaxing afternoon.

Shopping in Kusadasi

As a popular tourist town Kusadasi is home to an exciting blend of traditional markets, chintzy tourist stores and trendy boutiques. Most of the shopping is centred on the northern end of town, and the Orient Bazzar is one location that attracts plenty of visitors. This is a large covered marketplace, filled with small shops and stalls – selling everything from foods and local clothing to hand-carved musical instruments and jewellery.

If you don't fancy travelling too far to shop then you can stay closer to the harbour instead, where upmarket stores sell designer clothing brands. When you're shopping in Turkey, especially in markets, don't forget to haggle for better deals than the initial asking price. Not only is bartering welcomed here, but it's actually expected.

Eating Out in Kusadasi

Kusadasi has adopted a very international approach to cuisine, thanks to the vast number of tourists visiting every year. Food-wise you can enjoy a great choice in this seaside town, from fresh seafood to chain-store coffee in Scala Nuova shopping centre.

To get a real flavour of the country, choose one of the traditional Turkish restaurants close to the port. Some are within easy walking distance, serving popular dishes like kebabs which are great for a light lunch. Dinner tends to be the most popular mealtime in Turkey – so if you get the chance, head over to one of the port's larger restaurants where meals are served with local cocktails and maybe even a traditional Turkish dance.
