The national park near Kusadasi is a natural beauty where you can enjoy walking and picnics for seven months of the year from April to November, and go swimming throughout the summer months.
The park is open between 09.00 and 20.00 everyday. It is absolutely forbidden to light fires in the park just in case of fire, so either bring a picnic of cold food or eat in a restaurant in one of the bays. There is nowhere to stay and camping is also prohibited. Apart from the gendarme station and four restaurants there are no concrete buildings, but there are public lavatories, showers, drinking water fountains, and wooden picnic tables and chairs in the woods.
You can drive by car to Davutlar National Park, or take the minibuses which leave every fifteen minutes during the summer from Kusadasi , 34 km away respectively. The north shores are best for swimming, and here there are four main beaches. Içmeler, the park’s largest bay and the nearest to the entrance, has the only sand beach, and since the sea is shallow here, is favoured by families with children and non-swimmers.
