Buyukada - The biggest island

Buyukada is the biggest island from the islands called Princes islands.

Years ago the islands were place where they exiled the royal family.

Today this is a lovely island with beautiful houses of rich people and summer houses , amazing landscapes , restaurants and serenity.

Because of the location of the island , not too far from Istanbul it can be a great day trip from the noise of the huge city.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Very quiet place , amzing landscape
  • Cons:Can be boring , nothing to do
  • In a nutshell:Leave Istanbul and relax here for a day or half of a day
