Nearby Attractions

Approx half an hour drive away, the well preserved remains of the ancient city of Ephesus really is a sight to behold. The library, amphitheatre and city buildings offer an impressive insight to daily life, so many centuries ago.

Adaland Aqua Park, Dolphin Park and Sea Park are located next to each other and offer plenty of activities and entertainment for all ages. The parks are open daily from May to September and located approx 30km south of Ozdere on the way to Kusadasi.

Kusadasi (36km south) offers a lively nightlife, a good variety of shopping from the designer shopping centres at the marina and the harbour, to the bazaars and street markets. Add to that the string of beaches along its coastline, a cosmopolitan atmosphere, its close proximity to Ephesus and you can see why it's a port of call for so many cruise ships.
