Bosphorus tour last stop.

Anadolu Kavagi is another of many possible daytrips from Istanbul, and one well worth it. The small village is easily reached by jumping aboard the Bosphorus ferry departing from Eminonu ferry terminal #3 several times daily (but go early). Zig-zaging it's way up the Bosphorus, calling at several villages on both the European and Asian sides along the way, Anadolu Kavagi is the boats last stop. As well, it is the last village on the Asian side before the Bosphorus opens up to the Black Sea.

Traditionally, Anadolu Kavagi has been a small fishing village, of late it remains so, but has also grown to accomodate eager day-trippers from Istanbul.

The boat drops you off by a square in the centre, around wich are crowded several seafood reastaurants / eateries as well as a few touristy postcard and fridge magnet type shops. Outside of this small centre is only residential areas, some with nice architecture, but mostly of no interest.

A walk up to the castle is a must. You can't come all this way and not climb the hill. I don't remember seeing any taxis in the village though, so I think walking up is the only option.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Easy to get to. Quiet.
  • Cons:As with Istanbul, stray cats are everywhere.
  • In a nutshell:Nice quiet little fishing village.
