A very nice location for a beautiful sunset. Take a bottle of vine and glasses with you, to be worth to carry.

A beautiful beach about 5 kilometer away from the Bozcaada center. Bus service runs every 10 minutes from the center and changes 4 Lire per trip per person. The beach is always jam packed with swimmers. Beach chairs are difficult to find and is provided by the city council. Gem of a place to spend time and relax. Highly recommended.

Bozcaada Museum

Reviewed By jin_dru - scotland

We were aboard the first cruise ship to port in Bozcaada last week. As always we searched for the local museum, To be honest we were not expecting much BUT we and 3 other couples struck gold and were lucky enough to be given a personal tour by Hakan the private owner. I cannot praise this Museum enough!!! It honestly was the highlight of our cruise.Hakan's enthusiasm and dedication shine through. GO!!!!!!!!!!!

Bozcaada Kalesi

Reviewed By lynda44t - Darlington, United Kingdom

This is not become touristy yet. Not cost much to go in but did not pay since nobody there when arrived or left. In fact saw nobody offical anywhere at all. Health and safety gang has not got there yet so we're allowed to climb up the steps onto the walls. Something you can not do anymore in most places. Easier going up than down! Good views. Old jars in one of the rooms. Couple of sheep wondering around. No toilets or shops. No information boards. Best done on guided tour perhaps.

Talay Sarapcilik

Reviewed By ahpincis - Kuwait City, Kuwait

So said Benjamin Franklin, circa 1700, though quoting Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi would be more in the mood. However, Talay Şarapçılık was such a discovery and what a madly pleasant afternoon it made. Zafir Bey was our host and between his English and my Turkish (plus much goodwill) we managed to communicate. Other staff do have better English, so the monoglot tourist should not be at a loss. After a walk in Bozcaada my much better half wished a chilled wine and we both have been impressed with the Rosés in this part of Turkey so we ordered a glass of Halikarnas Roze. It was crisp and pleasant; the white cheese a perfect foil, the short story was we decided we were not in such a hurry and why not further explore the local grapes. The cheese was replced by olives and then we ordered ançüez (anchovy) from the menu. Turns out Zafir Bey makes/prepares them himself. The man is a genius! Now I am not as crazy about fish as my wife, but this was anchovy in a league of its own! If he had made the stuff by the ton I we were ready to buy, buy and buy! Soft as butter yet firm. The local product was simple, utterly simple but shone and was just outstanding. Despite the fact we had no car for returning to Çanakkale we could not but take back 8 bottles. The other thing worth mentioning is that the WC facilities were clean and comfortable. Not a place one wishes to spend time in, but nice to be comfortable.
I have to disagree with a previous reviewer who felt that the wine-tasting was over-priced compared to bottle-price. Sitting and being served (along with the olives and cheese) has a value-added to just buying and taking away. In my humble opinion the comfort, atmosphere, service and snacks were worth a trifling premium. I felt the charges were very reasonable indeed.

Great place to watch the sunset. It is very romantic so bring a bottle of wine to watch the sunset. It is full of wind mills so not the healthiest place I guess when you think about the effects of wind mills...

If you are looking for a decent beach service where you can relax and enjoy your chilled beer and some grills this is one of the very few Beaches in Bozcaada. The beach management charges for the chez long chairs only and the rest is a la carte. The sea is cool and clean. The sand is thin. Great place to spend time during a Bozcaada vacation.
