This small fishing village is the last stop on the Bosphorus cruise before you turn around and head back to Istanbul.
The boat drops you off by a square in the centre. Here there are plenty of Restaurants, and some Souvenir shops, there really isn't a lot here. There are more restaurants located on the way up to the Castle ruins, these have marvellous views of the Bosphorus.

One interesting shop I did see, "GOURDS", and I actually spoke to the Gentleman who made them into interesting designs.
See the photos! don't know how to explain, but they were different!
