Istanbul has coasts on two seas, namely the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea. The most beautiful beaches are located on the Black Sea coast. Kilyos and Sile beaches are the most popular places.
Kilyos is a small settlement located in the European side of Istanbul on the Black Sea coast and connected to Sarıyer. This is the best beach in Istanbul. Kilyos, which was a small fishing village in the past, is now an ideal place for those who go swimming for the summer season. Since there are the most beautiful sandy beaches in Istanbul, it gets very crowded in summer seasons and especially on weekends. It is a place where you can do many activities not only for swimming but also from picnic to kite surfing.
