Pigeon Island

The island is over four hundred meters away from the major port of the Kusadasi and is based alongside the harbor. The oldest fort of Turkey has its ruins left in the island which looks like it just came out of a gothic movie. There are concrete broken walls stretched all around the island which gives the whole island a very rugged look to seem. The sands of the island are really cold though the sun shines right above you. If you want a really solemn beachside walk and just ay back in the sand, this is the place to be. It is named this way because every morning between 5 to 7 you can find over thousands of the pigeons just roaming around.


Priene is the ruins of the archaeological monuments that used to stand here in the early centuries. The ruins are located 40 kilometers away from the mainland of the Kusadasi, only towards the southern coastline of the harbor. The ruins are the most photogenic location I have ever been to, the ruins have several broken pillars that are from their first creation still white ceramics making it really incredible stuff to be around. You can even hire professional photographers who will do it in a way better manner.
