AS AN OLD TURKISH SONG SAYS "BIZ HERE GECE HEYBELI'DE MEHTABA CIKARDIK, SANDALLARIMIZ ZEVKLE DOLAR NESE SACARDIK..."

Heybeli Ada, there are two large buildings that catch the eye. One is the Naval Academy, situated between the twin hills of the island, and the second is the Greek Orthodox High School, set on top of the other hill in the middle of pine groves. Another building of the Naval Academy is located near the pier. On the other side of the pier the shore is lined with restaurants and cafes. On the rear of the island there is a beautiful cove, and on the side overlooking Kasik -spoon-island a public beach, the facilities of the marine sports club, and the famous Degirmen picnic area.

There are special paths for hiking over the hills and through the pine groves, offering beautiful vistas. Heybeli is relatively lively even in the winter months because of the schools and the sanatorium facilities here. The Halki Palas Hotel, dating back to mid-19th century, is open the year round. It was renovated and modernized in 1995.

Heybeliada, istanbul'un Büyükada'dan sonra en büyük adasidir. Bir zamanlar bakir madeni cikarilan adaya Halki, yani bakir ismi verilmis, bir heybeye benzediginden sonralari Heybeliada adini almistir. Istanbul'un en çok ragbet gören sayfiye yerlerinden biridir. Sadece dogasiyla, temiz havasý ve güzellikleriyle degil, bahriyesi, sanatoryumu, ruhban (papaz) okulu gibi kurumlariyla da ünlüdür.
Adada dörtte liman vardýr. Güzel bir koyda bulunan Çam Limani ile Bahriye Limani bunlarin en önemlileridir. Adanin önemli yapýlari, Bahriye Okulu, Aye Ofemya Ayazmasi, Türkiye'nin ilk sanatoryumu olan Heybeliada Sanatoryumu (1924), Heybeliada'nýn ünlü sakinlerinden olan Hüseyin Rahmi Gürpinar Lisesi, Abbas Halim Pasa Köþkü, Papaz Okulu, diger dini yapýlar ve resmi binalardir. Adadaki, birine "Büyük Tur", digerine "Kücük Tur" denilen iki tur yolunda, yaz mevsimlerinde esek ve arabalarla turlar yapilir. Kücük Tur'a, Aþýklar Turu da denmektedir. Heybeliada da, Ýstanbul'un diðer adalari gibi, motorlu aractan arindirilmistir. Evliya Çelebi, Heybeliada'da bir Bostancibasý ile birkaç Subasi askerinin bulundugunu, adanin gelirinin Kaptan Pasa'ya verildigini kaydeder.
