Owner description: 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 hills above the village give a beautiful view of the water and a welcome respite from city noise.

during our 3 days staying in Istanbul, visitting this village & the castle was our most unforgetable moment. Travel by ferry from city pier it self was another excitement. The village is so calm. Many souvenir shops & fancy restaurant. And walking around the village & hiking to the Yoros castle is another momerable. This is you must visit when you are in Istanbul.

It was a repeated and ever loved out door activity. I went with a friend. We took the boat from Eminonu pier (Şehir hatlari price 25 TL). It took 90 minutes to reach Anadolu Kavaği (It is an old fort at Asian side of Istanbul. Through out the cruise one enjoys the beautiful buildings on both sides of Istanbul. The giant Boğaziçi koprusu (Bosphorus bridge) and FSM koprusu (Fatih Sultan Mehmet bridge) hanging over the Bosphorus look fascinating. They give us three hours stop at Anadolu Kavaği, where we walked along the sea shore and enjoyed the view around while sitting in the park made along side of sea shore. We had the fish lunch ( The sea basse locally known with the name of çupra is best to eat. Its grilled and served with green rocket leave and onions and traditional Turkish bread named Ekmek). ONE SHOULD BE VEY CAREFUL WITH THE RESTAURANT THERE AS THEY CHEAT AND SHOW GOOD PHOTOES OF FOOD AND SERVE THE LESSER QUANTITY AND QUALITY AND CHARGE A LOT MORE, SO ASK THEM CLEARLY ABOUT MENUE AND PRICE. The return journey also took 90 minutes and was very relaxing and comforting. Its always good to go on Bosphorus cruise.

Worth the trip up the Bosphorus - try the fish restaurant furtherest from the beer - delicious blue fish recommended. Lovely to sit and watch the world go by, the cormorants fishing, and the shoals of fish in the harbour. We even saw a dolphin on the way back to Istanbul - very special!
