Today Anadolu Kavagi is a sleepy fishing village located near the narrowest part of the Bosphorus. But the ruined castles, fortifications and ancient temples that surround it show how strategically important the area has been for millennia. The hills above the village give a beautiful view of the water and a welcome respite from city noise.

Rumeli (across from Anadolu) and Anadolu kavagi are the last ports of Bosphorus before reaching to Black Sea. If you take the official boat trip that organized by the city( Sehir hatlari) from Eminonu port, the last port on the Bosphorus trip will be this....More

We wanted to see the Black sea and were tempted by the various tours that offered a trip plus sightseeing but, after reading accounts on Tripadvisor, decided to do our own thing. We took the ferry from Emenonou (25tl per person for the round trip)....More

Most people will visit on the daily tourist ferry, which gives you 2.5-3 hours here. After eating and then walking up to Yoros castle (worth it for the views to the Black Sea), you've still got time to kill. There are about 3 streets in...More

Nice 2hr getaway - actually quite close to the big city center... You need to take the Bophoru ferry from Sariyer or the local Bosphorus ferry from Karakoy on a daily Bosphorus tour. Once you get off the ferry, you're surrounded with local fish restaurants,...More

it is a small village with 5 to 10 restourants. if you want to spent some time it is surely fine but a lot is possible in downtown or oyher hit spots.

There are boats from Eminönü to Anadolu Kavagi. This little fisherman town is on the Asian side of Istanbul at the end of the Bosphorus. You can take a boat, stay some hours to have fresh fish and come back to the city.

The ferryboat journey should take 45-60 minutes and is well worth it for the views of the coastline. Take the slowest ferry with the most stops enroute. Once u arrive u can walk around the fishing village with ease. If u... More

We caught the ferry just to the left of the Galata Bridge on Eminonu. We used the Sehir Hatlan company and did their long cruise. You have to do the long one if you want to get off at Anadolu Kavagi. You can get on the... More
