Istanbul Tours » Princes Islands Tour
Princes' Islands are a chain of nine islands off the coast of Istanbul, Turkey, in the Sea of Marmara.They consist of four larger islands, Buyukada, Heybeliada, Burgazada and Kinaliada.During the summer months the Princes’ Islands are popular destinations for day trips from Istanbul. As there is no traffic on the Islands, the only transport being horse and cart, they are incredibly peaceful compared with the city of Istanbul.
Buyukada is the largest of the Princes Islands off the coast of Istanbul, and is easily reached all year round by ferry from the mainland. It is such a pretty place to walk around and soak up the relaxed atmosphere of this jewel set in the blue Sea of Marmara. The tour of the island is one of the greatest joys, whether on a bicycle or in a phaeton. The track is shaded by pine trees and you can choose to travel 14km for the long ride or 7km for the shorter.
