Let’s Go Visit the Islands of Türkiye

Türkiye is surrounded by sea on three sides, by the Black Sea in the north, the Mediterranean in the south and the Aegean Sea in the west. In the northwest, there is also an important internal sea, the Sea of Marmara between the straits of the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus, both strategically important waterways that connect the Black Sea with the rest of the world.

Lots of Sea means Lots of Islands!

Here we are going to explore some on the many islands that are to be found off the Turkish Coast. We shall go region-by-region starting in the north near İstanbul The Marmara Region) then travel north to south down the Aegean Coast then west to east along the Mediterranean Coast.

Of course, these three regions boast the majority of Türkiye’s Islands and sometimes Turkish Islands are very close to their Greek cousins.

Then we shall look at some of the islands of the Black Sea and look at the few islands found inland located on lakes in Central and Eastern Türkiye.
