With glorious sunshine guaranteed almost every day, there is no better place for a waterpark, or three as the case may be. Perfect for adults and kids alike, Kusadasi has a selection of parks including Adaland and Aqua Fantasy Aquapark. Alternatively, if you would rather take a dip without the thrills and screams of a waterpark then there are plenty of stunning beaches to choose from. Kick back with a book and a cold drink and top on some vitamin D before you jump into the pleasantly temperate water.

In the evenings, head to central Kusadasi and feast on some authentic cuisine. No trip to Turkey is complete with having tried some of their most popular dishes, cooked to perfection by talented local chefs.
