Kusadasi (Kuşadası in Turkish) is a beach resort town on Turkey’s western Aegean coast. It is located 95 km south of Izmir, and about 60 km from Aydin.
Kusadasi is a tourist destination, with a popular cruise ship harbour and is reputed for being one of the most attractive cities of the Aegean. It is a convenient jumping-off point as it is close to the important historical sites, including the classical ruins at nearby Ephesus (Efes). Its seafront promenade, marina, and harbor are lined with hotels and restaurants. There are numerous beaches in Kusadasi, as well as shopping opportunities.
Just offshore on Pigeon Island is a walled Byzantine castle that once guarded the town, connected to the mainland via causeway.
The name comes from the Turkish words kuş (bird) and ada (island), as the island has the shape of a bird's head when seen from the sea. The City is also referred to Ada by the locals.
