    Worth a visit
    Lovely beaches and spaciously laid out sun loungers. There are a number of bays leading down to the beaches. First bay is a lovely sandy beach and tends to be the busiest of all of the bays. The others are pebble beaches. There’s is plenty of space for everyone. The on-site eateries are nice. Nice, clean changing facilities. The toilets aren’t the best and do smell. The water is described as crystal clear, but the day we visited was murky. We still managed to see fish, whilst snorkelling.

    Looks like paradise till you see the trash left by us, humans…
    A paradise on earth but unfortunately with people that don't know how to respect nature... Trash left everywhere - although it is said that the Serkan Group (that rents cheap plastic beds on the beach for 500tl, plays the worst loud music ever, and charges 120 tI for 2 bad coffees) is supposed to clean up... I am glad the rest of the parc is closed at least it helps preserve the fauna and animals, or else it would be a huge trash can. Early morning is a moment of peace and calm before loud boats pass and unload 50 people in front of the beach… or wait till the summer season is over. Hope we will learn how to clean up our mess.

    At home with nature
    This is a lovely place to visit although we could only get halfway along the coast road. There’s a number of pebble beaches, with sunbeds although these appear pricey. Wildlife roam with a families of wild boar in addition to the usual dogs seen around. Worth a visit

    A very nice place to relax and swim. The ocean is calm and water very clear. It has a beautiful view. There are wooden tables and benches where one can have food and. Drinks in a relaxed manner. The place is kids friendly. Must visit iif you are in kusadasi and want to spend some relaxing time or have a picnic.

    Perfect Jeep Safari experience in Kusadasi
    We visited Dilek National Park during our holiday in Kusadasi. The trip was arranged for our family by Mamko - Menallos Tour and it was an amazing Jeep Safari experience. We had a lot of fun and highly recommend to everyone.

Upon arrival we paid a small entry fee and asked where best to park for the beaches? We were told to leave our car at the entrance and walk to the beach! After 30 mins we came to the first and best beach, a nice sandy stretch to find it closed due to maintenance works! The chap there said the next beach was a good walk and advised we go back for car which we did. We then drove to the second and then third beaches...one had a family blaring loud music and the other quite disappointing shingle.
to conclude, the park and area are beautiful. We unfortunately just had a bad experience due to inept staff and inconsiderate locals but I'd still say to go ....just make sure you drive to beaches, there is parking at all of them.

If you're a lover of nature and long walks, and the term "national park" excites you.. Well then Büyük Menderes might disappoint you. There is one 4-6 hour hiking route which, unfortunately, closes in the summer months due to forest fire hazard. What's left is a string of busy beaches, dotted with restaurants and loud party boats along the shore. Definitely not the peaceful park we were expecting.

This Park is outside of Kusadasi after Davutlar in Guzelcamli. It is a wonderful Park were visitors can swim in crystal clear water across from the island of Samos. People visiting Kusadasi should spend a day at this Park and enjoy a Picknick there

Pine forested hils plunging into azure seas with super clear water. We loved it. First beach is an absolute circus, WAY overcrowded. Drive further and explore the more remote narrow, shingle beaches. Second beach has snack bar and sunbeds, and huge crowds too. We like the undeveloped area pat second beach where the road runs next to the cliff. Scamper down the hill and find your own area. We saw a wild boar right near the beach forraging. We had no issue with insects at all. We arrived at 5pm and entrance no longer uarded or fe charged. Officially closes at 7 but not like they lock you in the gate at 7pm we we had worried.

This is such a beautiful spot. Kusadasi was nice and Ephesus was impressive, but this strip of beaches, forests and hills is really amazing. Rent a car and make the half-hour drive from Kusadasi. We stopped at all four beaches … the first had the most swimmers, but the fourth was far and away the most beautiful. There was a nice beach restaurant with an excellent cook and friendly servers, nice tables under umbrellas, and beach chairs to rent for a very reasonable price. The beaches are rocky, not sandy, and the rocks are smooth & easy on the feet. The water was clear and warm, and the surroundings are exquisite. I would love to come back here.

The sign states that the hike is 15 km and will take 4-6 hrs (11 km up and
4 km down) but really the hike is over 18 km. The up was not very steep until about 8 km and stayed steep until maybe around 9 km finally flattened out and there was a waterfall of sorts maybe in winter there is more water. Nothing amazing.
We were looking forward to going down but was disappointed since the trail looks like a bulldozer recently made it. The path is not flat but full of stone that bother your feet and the trees are pushed back so that there is no shade. By this time you have walked 4 hours and ready to be done but really you have 2 more hours since the total trip is 18 km. The path does not go into Eski Doganbey but to the side and you end up in the middle of no where needing to walk at least another 20 minutes to the small town. The whole walk took us about 6 hours and that was without stopping much. I am glad that we did it and it was beautiful. But a shorter version of the trip would be to stop once you get to around the 9 km area and then turn around and come back. Those are the prettiest 9 km of the walk.

I am from California but living in Selcuk, feel free to ask me any questions.

If you have transport this place is definitely worth visiting. The main entrance to the park is on the north side. After paying 10tl to enter the park you cand drive along the road for about 15miles. Along the way the sights are breathtaking both to the sea and inland. Every few miles are side roads you can take to a number of small pebbly beaches. These are very quiet and many have sun beds. These are free but if there is a cafe or bar you will be expected to buy a drink or two. The sea is crystal clear and a great place to swim. But watch out, the local fish bite. Its not very painful but very startling! Especially the first time it happens. There is also a southern entrance to the park, which is more difficult to get to. But a visit is well worth it - especially if you continue past the entrance and go to the end of the coast road. Here you will find a tiny sandy bay with a good beach and a couple of bars and restaurants. Finally, its worth mentioning, that most of the inland roads in the park are unpaved, so taking a standard vehicle along them is not recommended. But they are perfect for mountain biking, so if you have a bike there are hundreds of miles of trails you can explore.
