The castle is situated very close to the city center of Kusadasi and is located on a lone island accessible by foot. It used to serve as a watch out for the people of this town in olden times especially as a shield of defence from the pirates and sea-dacoits. The castle itself is wonderfully constructed and is a piece of marvel to roam around. One can sit in tranquility and have nice views of the beach, sea and the city from here. There is no ticket for the site and it also has a couple of coffee / juice shops for the amusement of tourists.

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 of the city and water.

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.
