Reading list | Ayvalık

A score of islands are scattered off the coast around Ayvalık, though only Cunda (Alivey Adası) is inhabited, reached across a causeway. “With its magnificent views and scented breezes blowing down from from Mt Ida, it has always been a popular retreat,” writes Berrin Torolsan in Cornucopia 41, after visiting an antiquarian’s “deliciously distressed house” on the island.
