The Black Sea Coast Turkey
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Black Sea Coast

The Black Sea coast stands out with a lush hinterland made up of groves and forests stretching beyond the horizon, a genuine garden of Eden showered all year round by the profuse rainfall. Tea, tobacco, cherries and hazelnuts are grown on a near-industrial scale. Its coast boasts beaches of fine sand and seaside resorts, and though the waters are colder than in the Mediterranean, they are still delightful. Unfortunately, none of the towns and villages along the coast offer any attractions as such, especially in the easternmost area. You can, however, go for interesting excursions: a cruise between Rize and Istanbul, a trip to the charming fishing port of Amasra, the Sumela monastery, or even explore the Kaēkar mountain.
