Gokceada Island, Imbros, Çanakkale, Turkey
‘Heavenly Island’ is a spectacular Aegean outpost 11 nautical miles from the Gallipoli Peninsula. On weekends and holidays during the summer months it is popular with residents of İstanbul and İzmir, who are drawn by its unspoiled landscape, sandy beaches and Greek-influenced culture. At other times of the year it is a tranquil, windswept place where visitors are rare and the surroundings are truly bucolic.
