Uzunya beach, Istanbul (feaured)

Uzunya Beach

Uzunya is a small and beautiful cove in the north of Istanbul, near Black Sea. It has a beautiful beach, one of the best beaches in Istanbul actually. There’s also a restaurant in the beach.

I went there during a training road bike ride. It is a good place to train, because it has a steep road, and very little car traffic.

Thanks to it’s a small cove, the sea is usually peaceful in Uzunya.

Uzunya beach is close to Demirciköy (means Village of the forger). It was a camping place for the caravans in the 1980s’. There is still a camping place there.

I continued to ride, then took another photo in Kilyos 🙂
