Long Description:
"Büyükada, the largest of Istanbul's Princes Islands, is the most-visited, and for good reason: it has the most to see and do because of its size (5.4 square km, 1334 acres).

The ferry from Kabatas, or the fast "seabus" catamaran from Pendik, brings you to the ferry dock at the town center, with its sign in both Latin and Ottoman characters. As you approach the island, you can marvel at the many fine old Ottoman-Victorian houses, crowded now by more modern structures."
