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

I had been there by ferry with some of my friends. It took around 2 and half hours to reach there, took lunch and spent around 2 hours. Food quality was average to good. Nothing to buy from the market there as all those are overpriced. The most pleasing thing was to see plenty of Seagull on the sky all... More

This was a pleasant day out from sightseeing in Istanbul. The ferry trip was about an hour long. The island itself has plenty of cafes/restaurants and also has a childrens play area close to the ferry station. The horse and carriage station is also close to the ferry station. The horse and carriage ride was very pleasant and relaxing and... More
