How to Spend 2 Days in Kusadasi
With two days In Kusadasi, there’s time to enjoy beaches, boat trips, and outdoor adventures while also allotting a day to visit nearby ancient and natural wonders, such as Ephesus and Pamukkale. Here are tips for a perfect 2-day itinerary in Turkey’s largest Aegean-coast resort town.

Day 1: Sand, Sea, and Sports
Morning: Begin your visit by enjoying the sun at Kusadasi’s small downtown beach or heading to the popular chaise lounges of Ladies’ Beach. If you want to spend the day on the water, book a full-day boat trip to snorkel and swim in some of the prettiest local bays. 

Afternoon: Ramp up the adventure this afternoon: Drive an all-terrain vehicle over dunes, or ride a horse through pine forests and along the seashore to feel the breeze in your hair. Alternately, you can sign up for scuba diving and choose from a range of beginner and advanced experiences that take you out to explore Kusadasi’s colorful reefs.

Evening: Come dusk, stroll along Kusadasi’s waterfront and savor authentic Turkish cuisine at one of its many restaurants before grabbing a drink on Bar Street. Cap the evening off by diving into Kusadasi’s nightlife, perhaps joining the party set at a beach club.

Day 2: Ancient Treasures or Aqua Parks
Morning: Start your second day by joining half- or full-day trips that take you to a variety of attractions with convenient round-trip transport included. Tour of the Greco-Roman remnants of Ephesus, classical Priene, or Pergamum, or enjoy a day exploring the island of Samos or the stunning white travertine rock terraces of Pamukkale, which sit below the Roman ruins of Hierapolis. Alternatively, for a more adventurous option, you can take a day out at Adaland, Kusadasi’s biggest waterpark.
 
Afternoon: If you chose a day trip earlier, continue it this afternoon—roaming the streets of Ephesus and the broken temples of Hierapolis or plunging down Adaland’s chutes. Or, if you’re back from a morning adventure, join a countryside Jeep safari or a tour of the wine-making village of Sirince to experience the region’s rural culture.
 
Evening: Round off your 2-night stay by booking a classic Turkish bath, which includes a relaxing sauna, scrub, and massage. Once you’re feeling refreshed, watch the sunset from the waterfront before heading into Kusadasi’s Old Town for a romantic Turkish dinner with wine.
