Where to Swim in Istanbul? Best Popular Beach Clubs & Pools of 2021
Top Swimming Places in Istanbul
Here is a detailed post about Where to Swim in Istanbul, the best beaches & beach club entry prices in Istanbul and how to reach there:
Where to Swim in Istanbul?
Istanbul is surrounded by the Marmara Sea in the South and the Black Sea in the north. Bosphorus divides the city into two parts, European and Asian sides. Plus there is Golden horn which is the part of Bosphorus and it goes even deeper into the city.
The city is surrounded by the sea but there are only a few beaches where you can rent sun beds and umbrellas. Most of them are far from the city center where the sea water is usually cleaner.
Locals can be seen while jumping from the rocks and docks into the fresh waters of Bosphorus in the center but it might not be very convenient and comfortable for tourists to swim or sunbathe in the public areas or even on the public beaches.
That is why I personally do not recommend free public beaches for tourists, families, and couples. Pay a couple Turkish Liras and go to the private beach. You will feel much more secure.
