Heybeliada - Çam Limanı

Çam Limanı is a well-known summer destination for visitors wanting to swim and to picnic beside the sea under the pine trees. In earlier times there were cafes along the water, but today the bay has fallen on hard times and consists of a rough beach, some little snack and soft-drink stands, and a football field. Still, Istanbulites all know the song by Yesari Asim Arsoy (whose statue is mentioned above) that celebrates the pleasures of an earlier era’s moonlight evenings at Çam Limanı.
