Today Anadolu Kavagi is a sleepy fishing village located near the narrowest part of the Bosphorus. But the ruined castles, fortifications and ancient temples that surround it show how strategically important the area has been for millennia. The...more
It takes about one hour and a half by boat to reach the quay of Anadolu Kavağı. That village is the turning point of this kind of tour on the Bosphorus. After it come the third Bosphorus bridge (Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge) and the entrance...More
Super cute village. So much different than the European side. A lot of small souvenir and other little shops that sell eatables. Fresh homemade cheese and bread.
A lot of fish restaurants. We tried one. Fish was cooked perfectly although I did not enjoy the...More
Thanks to third Bosphorus bridge, reaching this remote fishermen's town by car is much easier nowadays. There is practically nothing here except for fish restaurants (all looking similar), couple of souvenir shops (all looking similar), a beautiful 16th century mosque (unfortunately partially collapsed) and a...More
Taking the ferry to Anadolu Kavagi from the Galata Bridge Port is the best and cheaper option to go that Asian side of Istanbul. You'll have the chance to visit the Yoros Casttle ruins and eat overlooking the Bosphorus Strait. Or if you prefer eat...More
Last stop on the ferry from Eminonu in Istanbul. Takes a bit more than an hour to get there it can get cold in november. The ferry ride is nice, the village itself is super quiet and sleepy
you have a couple of hours to...More
The boat trip from Eminonu was great beautiful views and we went into Anadolu Kavagi with great expectations. The town is quaint with friendly people all around and we were invited into many restaurants in the typical Turkish manner. Our trip up the hill to...More
It's a picturesque little fishing port, but not as lively as expected. The drive was an hour-long from centre of Istanbul, it is easy and nice, only congestion is at peak hours when coming back. You pass nice little villages so get your cameras ready....More
Beautiful boat cruise to the Black Sea
Wonderful photo opportunities
Cheap boat ride from Eminunu
All in all, worth the day trip
Ancient ruins of a Roman castle at the top of a steep hill - tiring trek
This year we took the bus 15A from Beykoz and we travelled through the hills and the military zone to arrive into the village. A short walking tour and the deep fried mussels on a stick tempts you. The fish is fresh and delicious. Some...More
A day trip to Anadolu Kavağı is an awesome experience when visiting Istanbul. The ferry ride along the Bosphorus is very relaxing and great value for money. There are plenty of excellent restaurants at the ferry pier and some shops to buy memorabilia. The adventurous...More

It might be a bit difficult to find a taxi. Maybe, talking to your hotel's concierge in advance to arrange a taxi back might be useful or you can ask the restaurant where you will have lunch/dinner to arrange a taxi back to Kadikoy. But it might be a bit expensive. You can also search for water taxi options but that will be expensive too. Another option might be to go back with scheduled public transport boat, descend at a more convenient stop such as Beykoz for instance and take taxi there.

We have been there for a short while and many restaurants are on ground level. We cannot remember special changing facility areas. A pushchair may be beneficial especially if you want to do the steep climb up to the Yoros Castle. Up there you may have to carry the pushchair at some points.
