Lovley for a walk out when the sun is shining nice place to visit, also a little place you can stop off for a drink whilst admiring the views.

Worth the walk down to Pigeon Island for a quiet walk around the walls. Nothing specifically here, but some nice views of the town and surrounding area.

We visited Kusadasi castle this week and it was lovely. There are many steps, so it's not suitable for pushchairs or people with walking difficulties. Lots of beautiful views and many photo opportunities

Steep climb to top, with quite a few steps. Best to go before gets too hot. Not too busy, peaceful and tranquil. Stop off places to sit.

It is not open often, we have been there twice and it was only opened once. The security guard let us in and the entrance was free, not sure if its always free. You can spend about 45 minutes here and enjoy the amazing views...More

Interesting and beautiful place to spend some time walking around castle walls, inside the fort and gardens. Information boards scattered around telling of history and island. Large replica skeleton of whale inside fort and model ships display.

It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the port to the castle. You can see the castle from the port.
