Fodor's Review

If you're looking for beaches, either head north from Kuşadası to Pamucak or travel 33 km (20 miles) south to this lovely national park, which has good hiking trails and several quiet stretches of sandy beach. The İçmeler beach, closest to the entrance, is also the most crowded. Travel 15 minutes to Karaburun for a more low-key atmosphere. To get to the park, take the coast road, marked Güzelçamlı or Davutlar, for about 10 km (6 miles) south of Kuşadası. You can catch a Güzelçamlı-bound dolmuş from Kuşadaşı or nearby transport hub Söke; minibuses within the park shuttle visitors to some of the most popular beaches. In the summer months, there's ferry service a few times a day from the Kuşadaşı Marina to Güzelçamlı. The park also contains the so-called "Cave of Zeus," and an archaeological site from when the peninsula was known as Mycale.
