Kilyos Beach on the Black Sea, Istanbul, Turkey

Cool on a Hot Day

Well, no, people don’t go to the fabulous cityof Istanbul for its beaches. But itdoes have beaches.

A century ago AtaköyYeşilköy and Florya, west of the Istanbul city center, were nice wide warm-water beaches out in the country. Now they’re surrounded by city, and heavily developed.

Kilyos, on the Black Sea coast west of the northern mouth of the Bosphorus, was always a second choice because the Black Sea waters were chilly, and subject to dangerous undertow.

Now, the land around Kilyos is being developed also, but it is still more rural and less hectic than the city beaches.

If you’re in Istanbul on a very hot summer day and you want a cool dip in the sea, Kilyos is the place!
