Why locals love it

The Bosphorus shore on the Asian side of Istanbul is generally much calmer than the European one. Çengelköy is a particularly inspiring place for landscape painters. There’s also a local teahouse called Çınaraltı Çay Bahçesi right by the sea. It’s a really popular breakfast spot, especially on weekends.

Why you should visit it

Take a seat on a bench, breathe in the fresh air, watch the waves roll in and soak up the peaceful atmosphere. You should also do as the locals do and stop by the small grocery stands to buy fresh cucumbers.

Special tip

A small art event takes place on the shore once a year.
