The Port Of Kuşadası

Situated on the West Coast of Turkey – 90km south of Izmir, Kusadasi, is one of the most alluring towns of the Aegean, as it is close to the most important historical sites. The contrast of the lively holiday life with the quietness of ancient ruins creates a very special atmosphere in this cruise port town.

Owing to its fertile lands and its position as a gateway of trade between East and West, Ephesus which is only 20 minutes away, became one of the most important cities of antiquity and retained its value throughout the centuries. Trade ships and maritime commerce called to port directly into the harbour of Ephesus. Over the centuries the coastline has moved to the West, and today the bustling cruise ship port and beach resort town of Kusadasi has become the gateway to Ephesus, which is one of the most visited ancient cities in the whole of the Mediterranean.

Kusadasi has a typical Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters, providing a long tourism season. The city is bathed in sunshine for 300 days of the year. Today it is known as the home of the ultra-modern Ege Ports and its secure facilities. Kusadasi is one of Turkey’s most sophisticated holiday centres; a perfect place for vacation with its sandy beaches, glassy water and access to Turkey’s most prominent historical sites.

Ege Ports can berth up to four large vessels, or up to four small and two large vessels. There are two roll-on/roll-off ramps and a quay to service ferry traffic. The terminal building comprise the Scala Nuova retail complex, a duty-free shopping area, first-aid care facilities, and a passenger and crew centre equipped with Internet and other communication facilities. The offices of ship and cruise operators and tour agencies are located within the terminal facility.
