Princes Island Boat Trip from Kabatas Port

Istanbul E-pass includes roundtrip Boat to Princes Islands (Buyukada) from/to Kabatas Dentur Avrasya port. For details, please check the "Hours & Meeting" section.

The Princes' Islands ("Adalar" in Turkish) are an archipelago in the Sea of Marmara; they are a small haven of peace in Istanbul and an ideal place to relax and enjoy nature.

They owe their name to the fact that the imperial family and disgraced aristocrats were exiled in the monasteries on the islands during the Byzantine period. They then became the favorite weekend destination of the Ottoman aristocracy, and even today, you will find many Victorian-style villas.

There are nine islands in total, but only four of them can be visited. The four main islands of the archipelago are Buyukada, Heybeliada, Burgazada, and Kinaliada.

Buyukada

Buyukada is the largest and most popular island visited by tourists among all the Princes Islands. The island is stretched over an area of 5.4 square km and offers plenty of activities for visitors. The island features a beautiful sea-front dining experience along with shopping, cycling, hiking, and sightseeing opportunities. 

Heybeliada

Heybeliada is the second largest island and probably the most natural; in addition to its lush vegetation, you will find beautiful wooden houses, a Greek Orthodox Monastery on top of the island, and the Halki Institute of Orthodox Theology, a high education institution for the theological formation of the Orthodox clergy.

Burgazada

Burgazada is the third-largest island of the archipelago; it is a quiet island populated by Greek citizens of the Ottoman Empire. The island is called in Turkish "Burgaz" and "Antigoni" in Greek. The name comes from Demetrius I, one of the successors of Alexander the Great, who built a fortress named after his father, Antigonus (Burgaz means "fortress").

Kinaliada

Kinaliada is the smallest of the four main islands of the archipelago and the least forested. Kinaliada means the island (ada) and henna (kina), about the color of waters that bathes the island.

The Final Word

If you're looking to escape from the city and enjoy the natural beauty, princes islands are the best options for you to visit. Every island offers you a different experience than others. Explore princes islands free of cost with the Istanbul E-pass.
