When we arrive Agva, where the Marmara Region and the Black Sea meets, we will have a walk along the seaside of the Black Sea. During that, you will enjoy being at the transition place of many civilizations such as Hittites, Phrygians, Romans and Ottomans (Agva has a deep historical background); the fresh air you will breathe in; and of course, the peaceful environment. The salty smell of the sea, the surfs which look like cottons and striking talents of mother nature will please your soul.
Boat Trip on Yesilcay River
One of the most exciting points of our Sile Agva day trip is the boat trip on Yesilcay River, along the town. We will get on the boats, which are safe and comfortable, and start our journey.
