Can someone suggest a affordadable beach resort nearby Istanbul

by Gro1

I am planning to take my kids - 11 and 22 - to Istanbul this summer. But need a good suggestion for a beach area / resort nearby Istanbul where we can spend a week before or after visiting Istanbul.I have been to Istanbul and doesnt need advice on that.

Asking for a beach resort near Istanbul is a bit like asking for one near New York City. Sure - there are the New Jersey beaches, but if you're looking for good beaches go to Florida (i.e. Antalya) instead. Internal flights are very cheap in Turkey.

no, not like new york...

I hope you have fun

If you will comine Istanbul with beach vacation it is smart to either combine

by Gro1

it with Greece or southern Turkey. Not a bad combination, then i just need to find a flight into the aea and a flight from Istanbul on our return. Gro

Sounds like you are looking for one of the Princess Islands. There are ferries running from Istanbul on a regular basis like a bus so if you want to stay at the islands and then "jump" into Istanbul it is possible. The two largest Buyukada and Heybeliada are nice and Heybeliada also has a nice seashore promenade with several restaurants.

Prince's Islands are convenient, but because of that they are mobbed at the weekends in summer.

As you have a week, if you are willing to pay for flights you can really go anywhere.

Try Turkish Airlines, Onur Air, Pegasus and Atlas websites for cots/timing etc.

Last summer we did just this. A few days in Istanbul, then a week in Bitez (near Bodrum)

As a resident of Istanbul, I have no advice for a beach area / resort nearby Istanbul . Blacksea is dangerous for kids- swimming as having winds and sudden big waves . Marmara sea is not so clean. Please forget beaches inside of Istanbul. I hardly advise you two small towns at black sea whick are Sile and Agva, approximately 75 km away from Istanbul. But dont expect sun/sand/beaches as in South.

Travel Tips for Istanbul

The Basilica Cistern.

by Rroja

Walking in there was almost surreal.

There are hoards of people selling carpets in Istanbul... one carpet seller gave us directions to it... escorted us to the door... I said 'Thanks'.
We went in for about 2 hours... had some coffee... we go out... and he was waiting for us there, asking us to go see carpets.

Just smoke it

by BlackSheeper

I think about 85% percent of people in Turkey smoke, at least in public. In the privacy of their own homes, the percentages probably shoot to somewhere near 98%

An alternative to cigarettes or the famous Meerschaum pipes, is the nargile (or hookah). Traditionally used in Ottoman times with weed, it is now used for "safe" tobacco (percentages once again changing in the privacy of homes...)

Many nargile cafes can be found, and nargiles are often also offered in tea shops. Tobacco flavors include the most popular apple, to cherry, cappacino, mint, etc.

The tobacco content is fairly light, which makes for an evening of "good, clean fun" -- even for those not accustomed to smoking.

The Turks love how tourists get off on it, and if you really appear to be enjoying it, you may even get dressed up in Ottoman clothes for a snazzy snapshot.

istanbul sporty type thingies

by TomorrowsAngel

You can basically walk around all the prime sights of the old city in one day, but instead of just seeing them in brief; it's heaps better to divide and conquer the city's attractions by means of a number of DIY planned walks, taking a couple or three days.
Istanbul isn't known for its golfing facilities, but there are a few courses close by if you're keen. The best swimming options are a day trip to Kilyos or Sile, or the closer Kizil Adalar (Princes' Islands).
Most of Istanbul's pool facilities are privately owned and expensive; try sweet-talking reception staff at one of the big hotels into letting you use the pool.
Gyms tend to be testosterone-fuelled, no-go-zones for women (i.e. read SCAAARRRY), with limited equipment - find a hotel gym instead.
Turks have perfected the art of socialising, and game playing is an important ingredient. Any tea garden should be able to come up with a backgammon board for free if you ask, though if you want to play billiards or bowling you might have to head to Beyoglu.
Not exactly hard-core sporty in the strictest sense of the word, but sitting and yarning over a narglieh is a quintessential Middle Eastern experience. Even if you're not a smoker you may be lured by the fruity and flowery tobacco concoctions.
Shopping in the thousands of shops of the Kapali Carsi (Grand Bazaar) in Beyazit, and Misir Carsisi (the Egyptian market or Spice Bazaar) in Eminonu qualifies as exercise. And don't forget to try one of the many hamams (Turkish steam baths) to open those pores. Bring yer walking shoes and someone you can read a map. Have some cash so you can buy some yummy shwarmas and a cold one for akil time.

AQUEDUC VALENTA (near Ataturk...

by Lalique

AQUEDUC VALENTA (near Ataturk Av. and Sahsade mosque) - a small part left of what was really huge construction, but still it impresses..... especially I liked the view thru the archs over the city...

Egyptian Bazaar

by neodue about spices

In the Eminonu quarter you can find this old style covered bazaar next to the New Mosque.It has been built in 1660 by Turhan Valide Sultan. You can find lots of spices and local turkish foods (pastirma,turkish deligts,turkish cheese,turkish style sausages) and also please visit PANDELÝ RESTAURANT.Founder of the restaurant is PANDELI COBANOGLU.You can taste turkish style foods with good service.
