"sun-bath anybody?" Local Life Tip by manuelEB

Local Life, Istanbul: 38 reviews and 49 photos

by manuelEB

The road Sahil Yolu coming from the Airport to Old Town follows the south east coast of the europeanside of Istanbul. . I've seen a mixture of names for these waters, Sea of Marmara (Marmara Denizi) should be the right name with some few milliliters of Bosphorous. The strait should start few centimeters Northwest from here. Thing is that you will run having the Sea of Marmara on your right and the defense walls of Istanbul on your left side. The place is a boulevard the hell crowded during weekends. No few are swimming in those waters. Sun-bath is the keyword.
