There are a number of beautiful beaches and lively resorts within a short drive of Sirince.
DAVUTLAR NATIONAL PARK
Nothing beats a trip to the National Park on the other side of Kusadasi. Although the drive takes around 45 minutes, it is always worth it when you get there. Offering 4 unspoilt beaches in summer, the first sandy and the others pebble, many have excellent restaurants right at the water's edge.
The sea is clean and turquoise blue and usually calm in the morning although a cooling breeze seems often sets in in the afternoon creating surf and waves. It is ideal for swimming - you won't be able to resist. There is one row of sun loungers and umbrellas. The pine clad mountains rise up behind you and in front lies the turquoise sea. In the evening you might find yourself sharing your beach front with a family of wild boar who have come down to see what the tourists have left for them. There is a small charge for driving into the National Park. The beaches are also beautiful in the winter months and there is a nice hike up a canyon for walkers.
Just past Ephesus and only 20 minutes from Sirince lies the huge sandy beach of Pamucak. We suggest that you turn left just before the public beach and go into Dereli, where the beach is fringed by palms and there is a beach restaurant offering cold drinks and food as well as showers and toilets. A sunset walk along this beach is lovely at any time of year and the beach is very good for children as it is shallow and sandy for quite a long way out.
A lively holiday resort - if you miss clubbing or mainstream tourism this is the place to go. The harbour has many restaurants and cafes and all major banks and shops can be found here.
Walk along the beach at Pamucak - golden sands as far as the eye can see - 20 minutes from Sirince
Swim in the turquoise sea at Davutlar National Park - approximately 45 minutes drive from Sirince
Join the fun in Kusadasi - many restaurants and clubs and all major banks and shops
Go to the biggest water park in Europe - or just leave the teens there for the day
If you want to entertain the children or get your thrills out of hurtling downhill on different gradients of plastic then you have two places to choose from: Adaland and Aquafantasy, which claims to be the biggest in Europe. Teenagers can be dropped in the morning and picked up in the afternoon while adults may prefer to see some of the other many and varied sites in the local area. Both of these are on the far left of Pamucak beach on the way to Kusadasi and are clearly marked.
