Kadikoy’s Caddebostan Beach was a hot spot in the 1950s and has recently reopened after being closed for almost 40 years.

Located in their eponymous Asian boroughs along the Sea of Marmara, This free beach has sun stretchers, changing rooms, toilets, showers and kiosks selling food and drinks. The beach has life guards for your safety.

However, as with anything free, it is packed most of the time. The people’s beaches get crowded once the schools shut their doors for the term, but their proximity to the shopping mecca of Bagdat Caddesi and location right smack in the center of the action might just offer the exhausted a much needed respite.
