Why locals love it

Locals go to Anadolu Kavağı to visit Yoros Castle and to eat at the restaurants surrounding the pier. The castle offers fabulous views of the Bosphorus and Yuşa Tepesi (Joshua’s Hill), which is a shrine that attracts many pilgrims. You can even see where the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea meet.

Why you should visit it

If you want to escape the stress of the city and refresh your mind and soul, buy a Bosphorus tour ticket to Anadolu Kavağı. It’s a pleasant place to wander and enjoy a seafood lunch. Ferries depart from Kabataş and Beşiktaş piers and take just over an hour.

Special tip

It takes 30 minutes to walk from the pier to the castle. I recommend wearing comfortable shoes.

l like the location where it is, some place that takes time for one to reach there inorder to be captivated to great extents, however they have now closed the gates into the castle since the wall can no longer support the infrastructure, hence you have to use a mini road to get a sneak peek of the forth bosphorus bridge
