Beach holidays to Kusadasi
Closest to the resort centre you’ll find Downtown Beach. With stunning views over both the marina and Pigeon Island, this busy beach is perfect for lazing the days with a lively atmosphere. Loungers are laid out ready for use here and there’s plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars along the promenade – perfect for grabbing a spot of lunch when you need a break from the sun. The most popular beach in Kusadasi is Ladies Beach. Ladies Beach takes its name from a time when the sunbathing population were segregated into separate male and female beaches – of course, that is not the case today. This beach has everything needed for a fantastic beach day, from beach bars to watersports. Looking for something a little quieter? Then take a trip to Long Beach, aptly named because of its huge 18km stretch of sand. Due to its size, it tends to be a little less crowded here, so you can sit back, put your feet up and enjoy the wonderful Turkish sun.
Food and drink in Kusadasi
No visit to Turkey would be complete without trying a traditional kebap. Whilst a good old döner kebab is great, the Turkish kebap takes this grilled meat speciality to a whole new level. Kebap, meaning skewered meat, can be a choice of different meat cooked in a huge range of spices and flavours. We recommend giving the iskender kebap a go, which is served on a pita and garnished with tomatoes and yoghurt.
When thinking of Turkish cuisine, we often think mainly of the meat dishes available, however, Kusadasi is home to a number of fantastic vegetarian dishes and seafood specials. Dolma (literally meaning ‘stuffed’ can take on many forms. Look out for vegetables such as courgette and aubergine stuffed with a mixture of rice, peppers and onions and cooked in water and butter. Or – if you’re a seafood lover – the midya dolma or stuffed muscles is a fantastic seaside alternative.
Last but not least, don’t forget to try the gooey, sticky and fantastically sweet baklava and the famous Turkish delight before jetting off home!
From stylish marina-front bars to traditional cosy taverns and loud lively nightclubs, Kusadasi is a holiday destination that offers a great nightlife for any traveller. The famous ‘Bar Street’ is the place to go for an unforgettable night out here. Think neon signs, loud music and dancing until dawn. If foam parties and glow sticks aren’t your thing, then head to the marina where cocktails can be enjoyed with good conversation and perfect sunsets.
