Küçüksu beach located in ÜSKÜDAR where once Murad IV a Sultan of the Ottoman Empire enjoyed to swim and called his favorite beach “Silver Cypress”.
Küçüksu beach has been reopened two years ago. This small sandy enclave on the north eastern shore of the Bosphorus is public, but beware as the currents here can get tricky and best left to non-amateurs. If your lucky you might see some dolphins!
The district where Küçüksu and Göksu Creeks are located is called the “Fresh water of Asia”, and was once used as one of the major gardens of the Sultan, with the name “Oil Lamp Garden” in the 18th century.
Küçüksu and Göksu Creeks, reflect the old Istanbulites’ life styles and habits with its historical buildings, poems, music and natural beauties.
