Beautifully perched on a peninsula, this easy-going port town is the perfect place to relax beside the Black Sea.

Amasra is a small Black Sea port town in the Bartin Province, Turkey. The town is today much appreciated for its beaches and natural setting, which has made tourism the most important activity for its inhabitants. Amasra has two islands: the bigger one is called Buyuk ada (Great Island) while the smaller one is called Tavsan adasi (Rabbit Island). With its architectural heritage, Amasra is a member of the Norwich-based European Association of Historic Towns and Regions. There is a fine medium-sized archaeological museum by the sea with remains from both land and underwater. Other attractions include Amasra Castle, Church Mosque, and the Bird's Rock Road Monument.
