Yeniköy Sahil

-Yeniköy Coast-

Yeniköy Spor Kulübü Tesisleri

-Sports Club Facility-

Yeniköy Kahvesi 

-Coffee House-

Yeniköy is an area that locals visit particularly on weekends. Its beautiful views and fresh air should be experienced. It has a nice area where you can walk down beside the Bosphorus.

You can go there via public transport. You have different options such as the bus which is the usual way of travel. However, you can also use the ferry which is a more scenic route and is far from the traffic jam.

Yeniköy Spor Kulübü Tesisleri is a restaurant run by the Yeniköy sports club. These types of places are usually cheaper than typical restaurants.

It sits next to the Bosphorus. You can eat your food and enjoy the view. It can be windy, FYI.

In Türkiye we have a culture of coffee houses. Yeniköy Kahvesi is one of them. In these places, people gather and play cards or Okey (a tile-based game). You will be able to feel like a local when you are there.

Yeniköy Kahvesi is surrounded by aged trees. It is like a nook.
