On the 39-acre island, which is home to many bird species, the nests of cormorants and seagulls can be observed.
The island, known for its mythological stories such as “Amazon women” and “the place where Hercules searched for the golden fleece”, is accessible by boat organizing daily tours from Üçkayalar Fishermen’s Shelter.
The island, which can be visited until October depending on weather conditions, attracts the attention of local and foreign tourists on Black Sea tours.
