Incredibly beautiful sea view and the sound of the sea hitting the rocks give you peace of mind. There was a lot of wind when I went but it was not possible in the summer. See you again in the summer.

Beautiful place at Black sea coastline. There is park where people can make BBQ and picnic. I saw a couple doing their wedding photo shoot here, and very sure their wedding pictures are stunning. I went there by car with friends. Latest info I received, there is a bus from Uskudar to Sile.

A place with a great view of the black sea! Fresh air and cozy place. A small hand made shop with accessories to select from for yourself and beloved ones

Beautiful view from a very nice park in Sile, a town in İstanbul. You can watch the beautiful Black Sea while
eating fish in one of the restaurants.

A breathtaking view with nice panoramic sea side and spectacular sunset. I came here for sunset hunting to accompany my friend which is photographer. We found lots of nice spots to take pictures from sea view, the beach, the sile light house and people who visited this place. We found very friendly people with warm hearth and open arms welcoming us. A worth visit for only 1,5 hour by bus from Istanbul.

When you are living in Istanbul, and you find a spare time on weekend, you should visit Sile, less than an hour, both for sea, fish, swimming and fresh air of the green environment, and also the city center such as Fener, the restaurants etc.

Sile (or Shile) is a small town near Istanbul and have beautiful beaches of Black sea and a famous lighthouse. it is not good for swimming many days in year but still has very nice views. you can walk from downtown to lighthouse and lighthouse park by about 1-2 hours.

This is a perfect route for trekking in Istanbul. You should see this amazing view! We walked 10-15km. There are some locations for camping. We reached Korucukoy (a traditional village) end of the trekking. There is a Turkish traditional cafe in there. You can buy water, tea ör anything else.

These photos taken in Şile Darlık Dam(Barrage).

If you want a guided tour for the black sea trip, DO NOT book with Azure Tours!

They said they will pick us up from our hotel between 8:00 and 8:30am. Someone did infact come at 8:30 but we waited outside with him for another 15 minutes until the bus actually came to pick us up. No-one explained anything that was going on, we were just picking others up from other hotels. Not until about 9:45 did they explain that there were different buses for different trips, and everyone went to the designated bus for their trip. All the tour guides at this point were rude and unprofessional while trying to organize this. I saw a customer arguing with one of them telling him he was very rude and the tour guide said so are you! We didn't get on the road until 10:00am!

I immediately noticed our tour guide was not wearing his tourism license around his neck as EVERY tour guide wears one (that I've been on, and I've been on a lot of trips in Turkey). Our tour guide didn't say anything about the trip e.g itinerary, distance, location, historical information, etc. As a surprise, his girlfriend/wife was on the bus with us and he was sitting next to her the entire time romancing her and avoided everyone on the bus. When we would stop at the sites, he would immediately run off with his wife and only tell us when to meet him back at the bus. He wouldn't explain anything about the sites and would stay as far as possible from us. Many times we were all in the bus waiting for him as he was still taking pictures with his wife at the sites. We decided to test him and asked him questions about a castle we saw. He got very uncomfortable and responded with "it's an old castle and they are renovating it" that's all he said.

When it was lunch time, we were all seated near a river and it was raining. There was a roof but it was outdoors so it was still cold and  wet. He made us all sit there, while he went to a dryer more closed space with his wife.

Once we reached Istanbul, before anyone was dropped off at their hotel, he just got off the bus with his wife and that was the last of him! I am certain he is not a certified tour guide. In fact, I called the company and complained and said many times that he certainly is not certified and the person I spoke with never said he was.

Also, the bus was filthy both inside and out. All the windows were muddy to the point where we couldn't see outside. It was raining but if the windows were clean to begin with, the rain wouldn't of caused such a think layer of mud. We asked twice if they could clean them when we stopped for gas but they said it's going to get dirty again. We ended up wiping  our windows with tissues ourselfs.

I've been on many guided tours with-in Turkey not only Istanbul, and have never experienced anything like this!
