We found out about this beach from a young man in local baklava store.
He gave us directions and told us which dolmush to take.
After just short ride (1.5 YTL/person) we were somewhere west of Yalova on no name street.
40.658113,29.238396 are coordinates for Google Maps

We paid for the entrance to the beach another (1 YTL) and 6 YTL for 2 beds and one umbrella. We had great time sun bathing, swimming in cold Marmara waters and to our surprise the beech keeper introduced himself to us as Frank from Westchester, NY.
Frank was born in Yalova, emigrated when he was 8 to US, lived in US and worked as a pilot. After he retired, he decided to go back to Yalova and enjoy beach keeping.
Who is better than Frank?
Frank give us tips on local fish restaurant Unsal Balik Pazari.

Beach was great and quiet. Not too many kids. Only local families. No tourists at all :-)
