Cunda Island: living the island life near Ayvalık
You may or may not have heard of Cunda Island, also called Alibey Adası, a quaint little island off the coast of Ayvalık, and a popular weekend destination for many Istanbulites. Though we’re labeling it as little, it is the biggest of the Ayvalık Islands archipelago, but still tiny enough to tour it in a day (or two if you’re slow).
Does it get crowded? Absolutely! Should you stay away? Not at all! But you should look beyond the Instagram-worthy cafés and restaurants and explore everything that this gem of an island has to offer. Trust us, as soon as you leave the buzz of the town, an entirely different scene unfolds. Cunda deserves your time, and it will reward you with some great vistas and a feeling of serenity. Check it out in this guide to Cunda for authenticity seekers.
