SILE AND AGVA NATURE BEAUTY DAILY TOUR.
Sile Fisher Village,The nature Orginal Turkish village,Agva ,Goksu River.
Our excursion to the Black Sea starts with a hotel pick up and drive through Europe to Asia by the second Bosphorus Bridge, all the way to Sue.
Istanbul is a beautiful city of many sights and sounds. But the Black Sea coast offers landscapes at least as interesting and spectacular as those found in the city. They are right there waiting to be discovered.
Heading northeast of Istanbul on the Anatolian side, we will arrive in Sile, a small Black Sea fishing town situated on rocks. Known for its sandy beaches and famous Sile bezi an open-weave cotton fabric, it is the perfect first stop for our tour. Once a port of call for ships sailing east from the Bosphorus, enjoy a stroll along the fishing harbor or relax with a tea at the hilltop cafe overlooking the Sile lighthouse.
On the way to Agva we come across picturesque traditional Turkish villages like Kabakoz and Suayibli where time seems to have stood still. So near to Istanbul distance-wise, yet so far in their way of life. Experience the friendless and curiosity of these villagers.
Continuing along the coastal route we arrive in Agva, deep in nature and situated between the Yesilcay and Goksu rivers that flow into the Black Sea.
Upon arrival you will find peace in a leisurely a boat ride down the Goksu river. Set in a landscape so green and rich, bask in the sights of Agva.
After taking in a magnificent view overlooking the sea and bluffs, we will break for lunch where you may dine on the local fish.
Next you will have a choice to truly unwind in the beauty of the Black Sea region by either relaxing along the Goksu river, or on one of Agva’s sandy beaches. Surrounded by forest and cliffs, the fresh, blue green waters of the sea are calling you. Get lost in nature.
We will take the forest route on our return trip. Because of its mild, damp climate, this region is heavily forested, and here is where we make our final stop. Relaxed with a tea as you sway in a hammock at a forest cafe. A perfect ending to a day rich in nature.
We will depart from this final destination to return back to Istanbul fully rejuvenated.
Şile has been a fishing village here since 700 BC and a lighthouse since the Ottoman period. Today, Sue is a beach resort, popular with people who want a resort atmosphere without having to go to the expense of travelling to the Mediterranean Sea. The 150 years old Şile lighthouse is the largest one in Turkey and second largest of the world a definite must seen. Once we left Şile back and head to Ağva, we pass through the traditional Black Sea villages where you feel your self far far away from the crowd of Istanbul. The picturesque way along these villages reaches soon to Ağva which means “the land between two rivers”.
