Pigeon Island

By Andrew_Hurley
Pigeon Island really deserves to be symbol of Kusadasi, Turkey. The eye-catching view of the island from the Hamam restaurant and bar, uniting with the panoramic colors of sunset attract many visitors. As the island was much-frequented place of birds during the seasonal migrations, it was named as Bird Island.

Pigeon Island, unlike its name, is now connected to the land by a causeway. It is even an ideal place providing a wonderful opportunity for relaxation. Within the borders of the impressive castle, you may watch the charming yachts sailing peacefully on the glassy waters of Kusadasi or sit in one of the restaurants by the shore and sample fresh sea-food or other Aegean specialties with the panoramic view of Kusadasi.

All comments and votes very welcome indeed.

Thank you Indrasish. Turkey is such a wonderful location, it's hard not to come back with a load of good photos; In fact just come back from there (13 May) (4th visit) and took over 1300 photos, plenty of ephotozine material there.
