Could someone let me know if there are nice beaches close to the centre of Istanbul - and how far away they are.

    Hi all, does anybody know what is the name of the island, favourite one which can be reached from istanbul and how to get there from istanbul.

    Thanks in advance:)

    The name of the island must be Buyukada;the Big island in English. You can either join a day tour or take the ferry from Kabatas and go there.The ferry ride takes about 1 and half hours.I would recommend going there after May since it is too windy and cold in the island.

    Never mind. You can also check Kilyos ,Agva and Sile for beaches ..Kilyos is not far from city center but the other two might take a few hours to reach.
