While most traces of a sleepy fishing village are gone, Anadolu Kavagi was still a nice town to visit as part of a Bosphorus cruise. The three hour gap between sailings was enough time for us to hike up to the ruined castle and eat lunch at one of the seafood restaurants along the Bosphorus. The hike was good exercise - a steep climb so maybe a bit long for older people or small children. The castle is closed to visitors, but you can see the exterior and the great views of the Bosphorus and the Black Sea in the distance. The restaurants down by the water all seemed to be about the same, so pick whatever looks best to you and try to sit right on the water if possible. It was nice to have a small-town experience and see a different side to the huge city of Istanbul.
