Istanbul Travel Guide: 7,940 reviews and 20,622 photos
Buyukada is the biggest island of Istanbul..And alsonamed as Big island, It is a summer escape, it is colorful and it is peaceful...
When you reach to Buyukada by the ferry, you will be surprised with the silence of the island and the colorful houses.. Buyukada has many many nice houses.. While you are touring in the island, you will have hard time to choose the best looking one.. Each road you pass you will spot another and better one..
One must do in the island is to take a Horse carriage and tour the island with them.. And do not forget to visit the old greek church Aya Yorgi, at the back of the island.. There is also a small restaurant near the Church.. And to have a rest there can take all your tiredness..
I dont know what makes Buyukada so beatiful.. is that the harmony of flowers or the harmony of houses with the flowers..Or the wonderful landscape..
Around 20,000 people are living in the island.. They all have a view of Istanbul from their windows...
The island seen from the picture is Sedef adasi the fifth island on Marmara sea.. But not residential..
You can easily swim in Buyukada.. There are publice beaches , as well as private clubs.. Degirmen (Moulin) is one of them...
