The island is known as St Nicolas / Noel Baba island. There are ruins of 4 churches and a graveyard. It is better if you wear sneakers due to the steep rough slope. With flip flops my friend was about the injure herself. Entrance fee...More

Beatiful nature, but overly crowded by gulets making day trips. Better to go after 17:00 and leave early in the morning. Around 10:00 - 11:00 o'clock a local couple comes with their boats to sell great gözlemes.

Walk through the door and you can't explain it, you just feel peace. This little pearl of a store is a really cool place. The workers are the sweetest people and knew how to make you feel like you needed to go nowhere else. Great...More
