Uzunya is a small and beautiful cove in the north of Istanbul, near the Black Sea. It has a beautiful beach, one of the best beaches in Istanbul actually. There’s also a restaurant on the beach.
I went there during a training road bike ride. It is a good place for a train ride because it has a steep road, and very little car traffic.
It is a small cove, so the sea is usually peaceful in Uzunya.
Uzunya Beach is close to Demirciköy (which 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 🙂
