Beylik (Sunken Ship) Bay
Beylik Bay has all the elements necessary for a secluded camping holiday. There are some private campsites, but tents can be erected on the beach, free of charge. Toilets and showers are available but electricity is not always accessible, so bring a flashlight – though the stars may provide enough light. Perfect for a holiday in virgin nature, Beylik Bay should be the first stop on a Bozcaada camping expedition.
Pikamp is a totally natural caravan camp site. There are no showers, toilets or dining venues, so we suggest that you stock up on food and drink. Tents are actually prohibited, though there are almost always a few scofflaws pitching them along the beach. But beachfront Pikamp is a splendid option for socially distanced camping amid nature.
If the idea of camping is more appealing than actually staying in a tent with no facilities, Ada Camping may be a fine option. Set 5 km from the center of Bozcaada, Ada is in Sulubahçe, 200-300 meters from Ayazma Beach. There are expansive areas for tents and vehicles, as well as electricity hook-ups and outlets. Bungalows and rental tents are also available. Breakfast is prepared daily, along with cold and hot appetizers and local specialties. If you want to be close to the center, yet in touch with nature, then Ada Camping is the right place.
At Aquarium Bay, you can set up a tent wherever you want or park your caravan by the sea – free of charge. Bring snorkeling gear because this gorgeous bay has fabulous marine life. A beach along a natural aquarium with clear water…perfect for a peaceful respite away from the crowds.
Ayılar Camping Site
Set in a wooded area of Bozcaada, this tree-shaded campsite in Ayılar is rustic and peaceful. Fall asleep to the sounds of crickets, take nature walks and enjoy the seclusion. There are no showers, toilets, shops or cafes and, as it is a forest, fires and barbecues are not permitted.
Situated in the furthest part of the island, this isolated bay has no electricity, showers or toilets. What it does have is spectacular views – and a barbecue area where campers can grill their freshly caught fish.
While Sulubahçe is adjacent to Ayazma Beach, it is far less crowded. Camping is free in this bay, usually accessed via boat. Cooking and bathroom facilities are available – and the sunrise views are stunning.
