Why is it called Ladies Beach?
Ladies Beach is without a doubt one of the most popular and beautiful beaches of Kusadasi. But did you know that there is a reason behind its name? In the land there used to be a vast olive orchard. Here, women were picking olives and when they got too hot from the glistening Mediterranean sun, they would go to the sea to cool down.
For years it would only be women using this beach. In the 1950s, this changed after a woman came to camp at this beach with her husband and kids. After causing a small shock wave in those years, everyone started to use the beach. The name stayed as “ ladies beach” but the sea is always fascinating with its magnificent turquoise color and cool waters.
