Why should you visit Kusadasi?
There are many reasons to make Kusadasi a destination on your next cruise. It’s a picturesque beach resort in easy reach of many other attractions, which explains why it’s so popular with thousands of visitors each year.
You’ll want to make sure you visit the ancient ruins of Ephesus, which was the second largest city of the Roman Empire. A guided tour is well worthwhile if you want to learn the history of the area.
Kusadasi is also close to the Aegean Coast’s largest national park, Dilek. Here you’ll find a huge variety of beautiful flora and fauna, along with four beaches and a range of trekking routes for the keen walkers.
The harbour is a fantastic visiting spot in itself, with boats travelling to the small bays and coves around the coastline. You can even try some snorkelling on some of the trips, and a delicious BBQ lunch will be served.
And there’s also a range of watersports to choose from if you fancy trying something a little more extreme.
Cruise lines visiting Kusadasi include Norwegian Cruise Line and Cunard Cruise Line.
