Beaches Around Kuşadası

Kuşadası has a variety of beaches scattered along its 40 km coastline. There is something for everyone, so if you wish, you could visit a different beach on every day of your holiday. The main advantage of Kusadasi is its constant light winds, making a day on the beach an extremely pleasant experience.

Its light cooling afternoon breeze can be very welcome, especially in the high season. In the morning the sea is like a millpond, with waves developing in the afternoon. The beaches are usually somewhat quieter in the spring and autumn seasons, however they do become busier in July and August. Below a summary of some of the best beaches:

City Beach – vibrant

Follow the boulevard from the city centre in the direction of the marina, and on your left-hand side you will notice a large sandpit with enormous boulders that form a barrier against the sea. Two jetties have been provided to allow access to the sea for bathing. Parasols and sunbeds are available for hire and there are several terraces and small restaurants in the area. A 100 metres stroll further along you will find another more comfortable beach which does offer immediate access to the sea. A magnificent view, parasols and beach chairs right in the centre of town.

Pigeon Island – cruise port view

You access Pigeon Island beach via the long pier where most of the pleasure boats and fishing boats are moored. A plateau constructed from concrete and rocks has been built on part of Pigeon Island where you can sunbathe or go swimming in the sea using the ladders provided. This island also offers a wonderful view of the cruise ships and the city centre. There is a restaurant with a terrace, parasols and sunbeds. No sand, but endless sea!

Papaz Hamam beach – cosy

There is a large pier that runs from the coast to Pigeon Island where most of the pleasure boats and fishing boats are moored. To the left of this pier is a small beach with rocky plateaus and a large sun terrace. There is also a popular beach club. A restaurant terrace has been built on the rocks. It offers a magical view of both the Yilanci Burnu peninsula and Pigeon Island with its ancient, recently renovated, fortress. Small and cosy, in the city centre and usually not too crowded. Parasols and beach chairs available.

Yilanci Burnu (Snake Island) – clubbing

Snake Island is so-called because the shape of the island resembles the head of a snake and lies adjacent to Pigeon Island. During high season two beach clubs arise here. These famous clubs are intended for beachgoers with a taste for luxury.

Snake Island offers over 17,000 m² of endless beach enjoyment. No sand, but plenty of grassy areas, wooden plateaus and seaside jetties. A large luxurious restaurant with a separate large bar/disco constructed on piles in the sea. The biggest beach club has been used for numerous film recordings, including the popular Dutch series “Costa”. Snake Island offers the ultimate holiday experience to clubbers. It goes without saying that all facilities are available. Luxury sun loungers (including doubles), parasols, bar, restaurants, snack bar, tennis court, basketball court, children’s facilities, water sports and plenty of music.

Ladies Beach – lively

The most popular beach on the Kusadasi coastline is Ladies Beach which owes its name to the fact that the women of Kusadasi were once able to bathe here unashamed (without men being present). Nowadays, men are also welcome!

This beach is in a built-up area with many small hotels, hostels and summer houses. Ladies Beach has a very pleasant boulevard with a large number of terraces and small shops. The beach is situated in a beautiful sandy bay running slowly into the sea allowing you to walk at least 20 to 30 metres into the sea before the water even rises above your knees. An ideal beach for children and for the less proficient swimmers. This beach is a kilometre long and is the most popular of all the beaches. Ladies Beach can be reached by the dolmuş from the city centre that passes here every 10 minutes. If you enjoy a lively atmosphere, then this is the place for you: bustling, plenty of fun, countless parasols, rows of sun loungers, all manner of water sports, packed terraces… all providing that real feeling of summer!

Green Beach – tranquil

Green Beach is located 2 km further along and is on the same dolmuş route as Ladies Beach. This is a small bay with a beach no longer than 100 metres, and surrounded by cascading lawns. It is usually somewhat quiet in the spring and autumn season except during weekends. Parasols, beach chairs, terrace and pedalos. A small cosy beach.

Sunset Beach – rocky

Sunset Beach is located 2 km further along at the end destination of the dolmuş. This isn’t actually a beach, but a seaside beach club with grassy and concrete areas.

There are a large number of sun loungers and parasols are available, a bar and a short-menu restaurant. A low entrance fee and no sand between the toes.

Long Beach – shallow waters

Approximately 6 km to the south of Kusadasi, there is a beach that runs to the National Park located in the small town of Güzelçamli. This beach is over 15 km long, hence the name Long Beach, and offers magnificent views from the south to the mountains of the Dilek Nature Park and out to the Greek island of Samos.

A great number of hotels have been built along the Long Beach boulevard, the majority of which are resorts accommodating summer houses for the local Turkish holidaymakers. If you travel with the dolmuş to Long Beach, it will first pass the tourist beaches where most of the facilities can be found. There are also a number of larger hotels at Long Beach. Parasols, sun loungers and water sports (all types) are in abundance.

The farther south you travel, the less tourism is evident. This is a sandy beach, with a few pebbles here and there, that runs gradually down into the sea. Long Beach is host to various all-age beach clubs. All of them offer beach chairs and parasols for hire and all have terraces and restaurants. Long Beach is a fantastic beach offering maximum enjoyment.

National Park (Dilek Milli Park) – natural beauty

A dolmuş departs every 30 minutes from the Kusadasi town centre to the Dilek Milli Park in the south. The beauty of the beaches located in the natural surroundings of the Milli Park are without equal. A crystal clear sea to the front and the rugged mountains (up to 1200 metres high) of the Dilek peninsula to the rear.

After entering the park, the first beach can be found after approximately 1 kilometre on the right-hand side: İcmeler. This is the only sandy beach in the Milli Park. There are picnic tables, parasols, sun loungers, showers and toilet facilities. During high season there is a restaurant near the sea.

The following beaches are pebble beaches, the first two of which also have showers, toilets and a restaurant during high season. This is also the end destination of the dolmuş. The next two beaches are quite some distance on foot (approximately 2 to 3 km) and are noticeably quieter. The Milli Park is quiet in spring and autumn, but can be much busier in the weekends, in fact much more like July and August. The Milli Park can be reached by dolmuş or by own transport (car, scooter, bicycle).

Pamuçak Beach – sand dunes

Pamuçak beach is 7 kilometres long, and lies approximately 10 kilometres to the north of Kusadasi. This is a long and wide (60 metres) beach that forms a natural border between the end of the Kucuk Mendederes river delta and the sea. The beach is made up of dunes, punctuated with marshy areas. The magnificent nature and the fact that this was originally a bird sanctuary have made this beach the ideal place for walks. The Kusadasi – Selçuk line provides the only access route to this beach. Where this road meets the beach, there are a number of short-menu beach restaurants with a couple of beach chairs and parasols for hire. Regardless of whether you enter the beach to the left or to the right, there are kilometres of empty beach on both sides. It only gets somewhat busier in the months of July and August. If you walk a couple of kilometres to the north you will see a small river that crosses the sand, but this is followed by kilometres of quiet beach. You can travel there by dolmuş or by own transport.
