The male employees attitude was disgusting! The place is not that entertaining! Also you cannot swim unless you have a woman for each guy! Like guys group cannot enter, why? "Management rules" since when pools required women??? Doesn't make sense. The pool is small and the beach is horrible, beside its almost always windy so you can't swim in the... More

Perfect golden beach, a lot of hassle in the entrance, nice music, perfect mojitos, too many sea guards due to crazy Black Sea. They don't let you swim in peace((((

A good beach, although difficult to get too. Take public transport. Went during Mono Festival - excellent location for concert.

While in Istanbul, I visited another beach but this one was much better. It was a little challenging to drive down to but the view was so pretty. Had a nice time swimming in the Black Sea (very salty water, try not to get it in your eyes).

It is in a beautiful area, it was lovely to see all those pretty views on your surroundings, and getting tanned under the sun of the Black sea. We enjoyed our time there. :)

If you are a tourist sea cannot be a priority in Istanbul, compared to European countries you cannot swim in Istanbul. Sun bathing is dangerous for skin cancer, so walk around city and see Bosporus. You can only enter to beaches by paying unnecessary fees, although seaside is public.

You can choose from different levels of comfort from 10 liras till 40. In cheapest one is quite hard to find a spot on sand where to lay down. I would recommend to pay 5 more and get a little further as there you have your own beach chair. Water is clean and they watch over swimmers. One plus is... More
