The fort and lighthouse on Pigeon Island, Kusadasi

Walking along side the beach and harbour line to the Pigeon Island, you see a nice Boutique hotel with sea view terraces before you cross the pier to all fisher boats. At the pier people are trying to sell low value souvenirs to tourists. On the island there is a 16th century castle. A walk around this small island provides you nice views of the Aegean Sea and the bay of Kusadasi. The lighthouse is poorly maintained but I assume it had its function.

Wandelend langs de strand en havenlijn naar het Pigeon eiland, zie je op de linker kant een mooi Boutique hotel met prachtige zeezicht terrassen, net voor je de pier bereikt waar de vissersboten liggen. Hier trachten mensen goedkope producten aan toeristen te verkopen. Op het eiland vind je een 16de eeuws kasteel en vuurtoren. Een wandeling rond het kleine eiland geeft je mooie uitzichten op de Egeïsche zee en de baai van Kusadasi. De vuurtoren is slecht onderhouden, maar ik veronderstel dat deze toch zijn nut heeft gehad..
