The Princes' Islands region

Buyukada (Prinkipo) is the biggest island of Prince's Islands - Istanbul.

For more information please visit :


The quiet ambiance of a century ago is preserved today as no private motor vehicles are allowed on any of the islands. Everyone walks, or rides bicycles, or takes horse-drawn carriages (fayton).

On your first visit go to Buyukada, the most interesting island, where you can take an island tour by horse-drawn carriage, or rent a bike and tour the island yourself, and have lunch or dinner, and sip drinks, and even perhaps have a swim at one of the tiny beaches.
