It came to my attention that in the November 2009 issue of Conde Nast Traveler, Bozcaada received an award from its readers. It's a small island I love so much and its the place where we spent some part of our honeymoon last year...

Bozcaada and the Turkish Aegean Islands selected as 2nd in the top islands category of Europe. First place went to Mykonos and the Cyclades..Very well chosen...Both are lovely islands with beautiful beaches. However if you want a good night life, choose Mykonos and for a rather relax and quieter atmosphere Bozcaada should be the destination

Bozcaada is about 3 miles away from the mainland it requires a 45 minute car ferry crossing to reach. It was last September when we were there and the weather was usually rainy. But you dont care rainy weathers on your honeymoon right??

It was such a joy to walk in the narrow streets of the island, stop for a rest in small cafehouses. At night I remember indulging ourselves with lots of sea food and wine. Bozcaada is famous with its vineyards so plenty of wine to taste...


  1. I've always loved those small streets and cafes...
    It's been many years I've been to Turkey...too many!
    ps. I like zaziki and raki! :-)

  2. It looks like a great relaxing place to visit.

  3. It does look like a special place. Your photos of streets, doors and cafes are very appealing. I've been to Mykonos and Santorini and loved them both.

  4. Local wine, seafood, narrow streets filled with colorful houses, cafes.....sounds like heaven to me.

  5. I love the photos of the little alleys with their beautifully painted houses, and of course the photo of the outdoor cafe. It all looks so friendly and inviting.


  6. Beautiful pics.
    Greek islands are great!
    Especially for summer vacation! .

  7. what an amazing place!!! and your pictures are so lovely :)

  8. another destination on my "places to go " list !


  9. It looks so picturesque. Love that type of little restaurant with tables out on the boardwalk.

  10. Wonderful photos... I was able to gain a strong impression of the island, could feel the sun and smell the salty air. And as for rain, well, in my humble opinion there's nothing quite so romantic.

  11. Looks a wonderful place with the outside tables, I would love to sit in the sun over coffee in that cute cafe.

  12. You really captured the island well and rain is welcomed on a honeymoon, for cuddling and staying indoors.

    much love

  15. You write so beautifully I can hear the sea, taste the food and wine and picture the rain falling which is so romantic on a honeymoon. I just love the pictures of the brightly painted homes and cafes.
    ps, thank you for your kind words regarding the passing of my sweet dog Maggie.

  16. Beautiful island! I think these days I would prefer Bozcaada to Mykonos, although I have never been to Bozcaada, but your photos are tempting!! Love the cobbled street and friendly cafes!!
