Rumelikavagi


A working fishing village with a fleet of giant Turkish Black Sea trawlers, the roar of whose engines shake the foundations of Bosphorus yalıs as they make their way to the Black Sea. Rumelikavağı also has a decent set of fish restaurants and good sandy beaches, which you pay a small sum to go into. Lovely out of hours (ie not at weekends).
