Resort Info

Kusadasi

Located on Turkey’s west coast, the former fishing village of Kusadasi is now a thriving purpose-built resort. A choice of 8 stunning beaches is undoubtedly the main draw, but there’s a little bit of everything here – lush scenery, vibrant nightlife, amazing food, fascinating archaeological sites and sunny weather all year round. Kusadasi is ideal for your beach holiday whether you’re a couple looking for romance, or a family wanting a fun-filled break.

A wealth of activities

There’s plenty to do besides relax on one of the many beaches. Kusadasi hasn’t entirely lost its old-world charm, with plenty of little cobbled streets, bazaars and traditional taverns to look out for, and ancient ruins to explore. Night owls will be delighted by the selection of bars, pubs and clubs on offer. There are also three waterparks within easy reach of the town, perfect if you’ve got kids.

Out and about

Pigeon Island – not really an island but a peninsula connected to the mainland – makes a great destination for a day out. It has a Byzantine castle to explore, and is also where a lot of Kusadasi’s best restaurants and bars are located. In spite of the name, it’s not overrun with pigeons! If you’re prepared to venture further afield, the ruined city of Ephesus is a highly popular archaeological site and can be reached in half an hour.

 

Things to Do in Kusadasi

 

On the beach in Kusadasi

Out of the many beaches around Kusadasi, three are worth a special mention. The first is Ladies Beach – named as it was once for women only – which is the largest. It’s popular with windsurfers and is backed by a chic promenade filled with bars and restaurants. Long Beach is best for various water sports and snorkelling, while Kustur Beach is a short dolmus bus ride away, and is perfect if you’re looking for somewhere a bit quieter. All three beaches are great for sunbathing, swimming and admiring the beautiful Turkish scenery.

Eat and drink in Kusadasi

You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out in Kusadasi, with varied restaurants offering everything from traditional Turkish fare to international and fusion cuisine. As it’s a coastal resort, seafood is a particular specialty and can be enjoyed in abundance in the seafront restaurants.

Top Tip:

Try some Raki, a locally-made aniseed-flavoured drink, with your seafood dishes.

Kusadasi nightlife

For some of the best nightlife in town, head to Kaleici, the area just inside the old city walls. There are lots of bars, pubs and discos offering a variety of music styles to suit all tastes. The two “bar streets” are lined with old stone buildings converted into clubs and bars, particularly Turkish and Irish establishments.

Shopping in Kusadasi

Kusadasi is home to numerous markets, boutiques and shopping centres, as well as a choice of bazaars running close to the harbour. The markets are an explosion of sights, sounds and colours, with stalls selling everything from carpets to imitation designer brands to fresh fruit and veg.

Top Tip:

Don’t be afraid to haggle for a good price.

Things to see in Kusadasi

At least 2000 years old, the ancient city of Ephesus is great for history lovers. The ruins are better preserved than in Rome itself, and you can visit fascinating sights such as the Great Theatre, the Library of Celsus and the Temple of Hadrian. You can even see what’s left of some ancient public toilets!

Top Tip:

It’s well worth paying for a guided tour as the archaeological site is enormous.

 

We recommend

 

Oz Urfa

An authentic Turkish restaurant serving up local specialties such as fresh wood-fired flatbread, succulent meats and delicious meze. It’s family-run with a friendly, relaxing atmosphere.

Some Where Else

This unusually named Irish pub is a bit on the expensive side, but it’s worth it to try one of their excellent cocktails with a view of the sunset. They also serve food, with a mean Sunday roast on the menu!

2/10 Okay

19 July 2017

2 star not 4 star

Was a ok hotel but definitely 2 star. Food was ok but the meat was pressed & cheap & tastless. Deserts were nice. Only coffee available was from a machine & was very bitter. I went and bought a kettle. Hotel is at the top of a hill. I asked at reception what buses went there but no one seemed to no. Buses 5-6-7 stop outside hotel. You stop them by putting your hand out & you give there driver 2 lira. Found hairs in my food a couple of times so I ate out a good few times. Lady in the massage parlour was a nightmare. Kept trying to persuade me to have a massage. The only reason I didn't was because they had no price list. I booked a room with a sea view but only got a partial view from my very tiny balcony.

The best thing about my stay was...

Entertainment team were nice & most staff were nice and friendly.
4/10 Average

2 Star

The hotel was 2 star not 4 star. Food wasn't all that & meat was compressed meat & didn't taste of anything. Reception staff weren't very knowledgeable & very very limited wifi. Also finding hairs in my food wasn't good.!

The best thing about my stay was...

The pool was nice & entertainment team were nice & tried hard.

6/10 Good

Lovely view, nice apartment, LOUD bar

Because Pamay is on a hilltop (don't be put off, little dolmus buses pass in both directions every 5 minutes), if you ask for a sea view, the view over the bay is lovely. The apartments are spacious and while not exactly glamorous, everything works. When I arrived, there was no cooker or cooking utensils in the room, and when I asked they took 24 hours to arrive -I think there was a breakdown in communication somewhere along the line! The man on the desk most of the time - Mehmet, I think - was great, really helpful and cheerful; the others tried to be helpful, but didn't speak much English - there again, in Turkey, why should they?! My only complaint was that every night, the pool bar - which half of the apartments face - played really loud music which you could still hear even if you closed your windows and doors, and at 32 degrees, who wants to? I realise that that's what some guests want, but others really don't. If you fancy a bit of peaceful contemplation on your balcony at the end of the day, or have a brace of little kids to get to sleep - forget it! I think in the interests of fairness, Pamay should stress this in their advertising, so that those who want to avoid it can do so. If I want to go to a club, I go, I don't want the club in my hotel room! So, lovely situation, good apartments, nice staff, but no peace from about 7pm to 1am.

The best thing about my stay was...

The view out over Kusadasi bay.
