Beldeğirmen

A few minutes' drive along the coast east of İnebolu, heading from Yakıören and Abana.

By car or dolmuş from İnebolu.


A 19th-century seaside mosque at Beldeğirmen (old Niyerze), painted the traditional aşıboya (oxblood) red, pinned to the shore by a giant plane tree which may be 700 years old. Ignore the gruesome modern mosque next door.
