Pigeon Island, Kuşadası, Turkey

Pigeon Island was used for defensive purposes during the Ottoman Empire.

There is a Byzantine Castle on the highest point of the island, which dates to the 13th Century. The castle has been documented as being used to fight Pirates and so has come to be known as The Pirate Castle.

Today the island is connected to the mainland by a causeway know as a 'mole'.
