This is the quietest of the four main islands; if you want to do a bit of profiling on a trendy beach, this isn't the spot for you. If you do want to slow right down, walk, look at sea views, envy the lovely homes and gardens, eat ice cream, drink surprisingly good espresso, swim in the sea, and look... More

We initially planned to have a short stop here and than go further to Heybeliada or Adalar. Yet, we ended up spending our whole day there. Just walking around can be very relaxing even in the burning sun. The beaches are not for sunbathing but if you have sandals I would recommend a dip. It's a great place to visit... More

We got off the ferry at the wrong stop and ended up in Burgazada. Best mistake ever because it's such a peaceful island with so much character. We took a horse and carriage around the island which was a lot of fun though a bit scary around those corners. Great views and lots of places to swim. We ate at... More

İt is perfect time to walk through small roads and streets of this nice and very quiet island far from chaos and traffic during summer time if specially there is a light wind from the sea.Lots of nice houses and villas with beautiful flowers will be on yr way.Highly recommended to visit it.

I went island hopping for a day on my 6 day trip to Istanbul and absolutely loved my experience! Definitely recommend checking out the islands, transport is easy to use and the views are magnificent. I've written a bit more about it on my blog if anyone is interested: http://kays-kitchen.co.uk/2014/09/19/istanbul-day-3/

Burgazada is so beautiful. We came there in the afternoon after an active morning in Buyukada and had late lunch and then a walk. The weather became cooler in the evening, we were there almost alone, accompanied by a few straw cats and dogs. We really enjoyed. The beaches must be lovely in summer if not overcrowded. It’s not that... More
