If you would want to travel the Dilek Peninsula through the sea, you will see Tavşan Island, Su Island and Sandal Island.

Kuşadası is among the settlements that change with the era. The first settlement, Neopolis was built by Ionians in “Yılancı Burnu”. In the Medieval Ages, the settlement called “Andız Tower” in the foothills of Pilav Mountain was moved to the city called “Scala Nuova”, where Kuşadası is located today, due to the difficulties about accessing it from the sea. In the foothills of Dilek Hill, which is on the northeast side of the national park, the ruins of city walls and the parliament building of the Panionium, the meeting place of twelve Ionian cities, have reached to the present day. You can visit the Venetian castle and the Anaia city on 2 km southeast of this castle here.

The Pygela ancient city is in the north of the district. The Güvercin Island that hosts a Byzantine castle on the rocks and the Küçük Ada Castle which was built in the 19th century were important centers for Ottoman Empire’s sea defense against the pirates. The walls that surround the Kuşadası also belong to the Ottoman Empire.
