Surrounded by sandy beaches and strewn with vineyards, Bozcaada is an alluring island off the coast of Turkey. Spend your time beach hopping around the island, devouring freshly-caught seafood and cooling off in the sparkling Aegean Sea.
Bozcaada is fringed by golden beaches, hidden bays and aquamarine coves. Ayazma is one of the most popular stretches of sand, famous for its crystal-clear turquoise water. There are plenty of umbrellas and sun lounges to rent, as well as snorkels, paddleboards and kayaks. The beach is lined with restaurants serving fresh mezze and seafood.

It's easy to spend hours getting lost in Merkez, also known as “Bozcaada Town”. It's anchored by a cobbled Old Town filled with historic houses painted in a rainbow of colours. Browse the area’s cafes, bars, wine taverns and restaurants. Cicek Pastanesi is a local favourite, serving home-cooked savoury pastries since the 50s.
