Kadıkalesi is situated in the western part of the Peninsula, nestled halfway between Turgutreis and Gümüşlük. Kadı Kalesi translates to Judge’s Castle, and is named after the residence of the local area Judge from ancient times. The remains of the building are still visible on the hillside above the town.
Kadıkalesi, four kilometres to the north of Turgutreis, was an old Leleg city. Now it is developing as a greener holiday resort area. The name of the place comes from the Hellenistic era castle on the top of the hill. The church on the opposite hill dates from the Roman period. The historic fountain under the platanus trees is still being used today.
Kadıkalesi is a small coastal location with a few resorts and a small sandy beach. Whilst its neighbour, Turgutreis has developed and grown, Kadıkalesi remains a simple and unspoilt. There’s a small main street and a few shops, but none of the touristic chaos of other towns on the Peninsula experience.
It’s a small town that stretches along the shore with restaurants and other resort village amenities making it easy to get around on foot or bike. There is a narrow but sandy beach along the coastline for swimming and sunbathing, and a selection of wooden docks. Lot’s of this area is populated by resorts, but there are still a few quiet areas you can discover to chill out at the beach.
The location of Kadıkalesi, make it a perfect cove to enjoy water sports. Mornings are good for beginners, as the wind starts to pick up in the afternoon. Kadikalesi has a long, partially protected sandy beach offering the best views over the assorted islands there. A few fish restaurants overlook the beach and there is very little accommodation available.
