Kusadasi port - Turkey

Kusadasi port is located at the Aegean Coast of Turkey. It is called since from an angle from the sea, the peninsula resembles the head of a bird, thus, "kus" for bird and “ada” for island as Kusadasi..I visited Kusadasi on a day trip during my holidays on the Greek island of Samos , as there is an everyday ferry connection between them.
Among the most popular swimming spots in Kusadasi town is the Ladies Beach,which we - and thousands others as you will see - visited. There are several other beaches nearby , a couple of water parks , the Bazaar and great historical sites like the ancient city of Ephesus left from the Greek era.
I hope you enjoy my video and the music!

Nice. Looks like a fun trip.

How long is the ferry ride from Samos and why do they call it Ladies Beach?

Yes it is a nice daytrip and next time i'l make sure i have more time to visit the great sites a little further from Kusadasi , like Pamukkale (what you see in the photo is not snow!).

The ferry ride is 1 hour and 15 minutes , and leaves in the morning from Vathi port in Samos.

The name Ladies Beach comes from before the 1970s, when only women and girls were allowed to bath here.

Kushadasi is OK, but ...

Kushadasi is a great jumping off place to Ephesus (Efes in Turkish) and you can pick up a tour from there. Mrs. H & I where there about 5 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. However, the highlight was the tour to Ephesus.

We lived in Turkey for a year and a half in the mid 1960's while I was in the USAF but didn't get Kushadasi until the 21st century.

I'd recommend Kushadasi as a starting point to Ephesus, or a jumping off place to Cappadocia, but as a destination ...

Did you notice any political tension when you entered Turkey from Greece? I skipped the ferry tour from Rhodos to Turkey because of negative comments of other travelers.
