My review is for the island itself. After getting off the ferry, on this island, my friend and I walked to the left, where there were a line of restaurants after which, a stretch of beach with large rocks. There wasn't any sand but there were some locals in the water and out, sitting on chairs. I thought the water gently streaming over the boulders was quite beautiful and this is where I wanted to swim. The gentleman I was with thought it looked "dangerous" and didn't want to swim here. We backtracked and decided to walk across the island hoping to find a beach. Lots of horse drawn carriages traveled along this route and the stench is terrible but I really found the views and houses to be worth the discomfort. It was a really hot day and I soon nixed the idea after about a mile of uphill walking in the heat and humidity. We walked back down and turned left, the opposite direction of the large rocks and restaurants. We got bombarded by "beach clubs" showing the brochures and decided on the club with the only "sand beach". The price was 60tl for 2 and we got on a boat for about 15 minutes. As soon as I saw this club, I was so disillusioned. Nasty green astroturf type covering on the ground. Chairs packed in. Kids everywhere. A small beach. Water was cool. That's the best thing I can say. The view looking away from the beach was fair. Do yourself a favor and do not pay for the beach clubs. Bring a cooler and a couple lounge chairs, walk left to the water with the boulders and sit among the locals and swim. If you are timid about water, this probably won't be for you. I love swimming. The water wasn't rough on that day. I am more into "natural type" swimming areas. If you have young children, this plan isn't for you. Go to a beach club with the floating slides.
