October on the Islands


Last days of September in İstanbul were cool and windy but after these three days of extraordinary weather, beautiful autumn days are back.

Swimming season on the Islands still continues. Water temperature is not below 23-24 degrees. Excluding mornings and evenings, weather and sea water temperatures are nearly equal. Most of the beaches on the Islands will be open until the end of Sacrifice Feast, mid October. Islands are not only beaches and the sea. As we mentioned in September article, the most beautiful days of Islands, magnificent autumn, continue till December.

Despite raining and cool winds from time to time, sunshine is always there.

It is the time for biking, trekking, photographing the colors which cannot be found in cities any more, sitting at cafes, restaurants on the seaside, watching amazing scenery of Marmara sea and Islands from Aya Yorgi or Kalpazankaya.

We also would like to remind you, Heybeliada (Halki) Seminary is now open everyday, as you know it could be visited only with special permission in the past.
