Kusadasi is Turkey’s largest beach resort town on the Aegean coast. As such, it has many different accommodations to choose from, which can be a bit overwhelming.
To help you get started, I show and describe Kusadasi’s 2 best beaches, as well as a selection of the best hotels there, including some all-inclusive options.
About Kusadasi’s Beaches
There are several beaches surrounding Kusadasi, but some are more accessible and have more options for food and drinks.
With that in mind, I’ve shortlisted 2 the best beaches to stay at in Kusadasi, to help you focus your search on finding an at least somewhat centrally located hotel, from which you can explore further.
Ladies Beach is Kusadasi’s city beach. It’s named as such because back in the Ottoman period, only women were allowed to access the beach.
The beach has a one kilometer stretch of sandy beach and clean, shallow waters. You can find plenty of sun beds and umbrellas for rent to enjoy this beach.
There are also a good amount of bars, cafes, restaurants and hotels here, so this beach is lively and bustling. If you’re looking for somewhere to party and people watch, this is the place to stay.
Long Beach is about a 10-minute drive further south from Ladies Beach. It used to be 18 kilometer long, but it has been divided into several sections over the years.
Nowadays, Long Beach is only a 6 kilometer area, where you’ll find a lot of watersports activities, the Aqua Center waterpark, and some restaurants and bars.
If you’re looking for somewhere a bit quieter while still having the convenience of food and drinks close by, Long Beach is a good choice.
If you’d like to explore more of Kusadasi’s beaches beyond these two most centrally located ones, you can see a list here.
