    Tirebolu Things to Do

    Tirebolu is a peaceful and safe town. Evening walks became a local habit in summer time. It is realy nice to walk under flowered trees between friends and family, to look at the mediaeval castle of St. John, to have a little tea break in an open air café.

  • Attention to rocks in the sea..

    Tirebolu Warnings and Dangers

    Tirebolu Beach is always popular in summer time. But an enjoyable day may convert to a nightmare. There are many rocks-big or small around and that requires attention to protect from razor like edges of rocks.

    Sebinkarahisar castle.

    by Tdiver Updated Sep 13, 2006

    Not for the faint hearted.
    It's a steep path up from the back of town up to the hill top.
    Views from the top are great.
    Actual castle doesn't consist of much,just a small curtain wall ,tower and a cistern.
    Various other defensive points scattered around and some small caves.
    Last major event which happened here was the quashing of a revolt by some Armenian bandits in June 1915 and who were using the castle as shelter.
    The origins of the castle are unclear.
    If you want to climb the tower you can but the stairs are narrow and there is no handrail as my picture shows.
    Entrance is free.
