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
