Princess’ Islands are one of the amazing placing that you must visit in Turkey. They’re located in the Asian side. If you’re residing in the European side (like us), take the ferry boat from Kabatas (Kabatash). It will take around 1:30 hrs, you’ll pass by all of the 4 islands. The famous one is the last & it’s the biggest.
P.S. Don’t let any tour agency fool you by arranging a tour to this island. It’s very easy & cheap. The ferry boat ticket (coin) is 10 Liras round trip. The horse ride 60 Liras for 45 minutes with 10 minutes stop at the top & then you can choose your own cafe.
When you reach there, you’ll see many cafes & restaurants along the shore. You can explore the island by foot, rent a bicycle or take a horse ride. We took the horse because it’s faster & easier 😛
The pictures in this part will be about the ferry boat ride, few pictures of the 1st 3 Priness’ Islands & the beginning of our trip in the biggest Island.
This is the place from where you take the ferry boat. You’ll fine machines on the right side, insert 5 liras & get your coin/ticket
