Where to stay in Gökçeada

About Gökçeada

Also known as “Heavenly Island”, Gokceada is set in the shimmering Aegean Sea, fringed by sandy beaches and rugged coves. The island is dotted with atmospheric towns and villages, as well as organic farms, vineyards and artisan workshops. It's also a great base for exploring Turkey's Gallipoli Peninsula.

Things to do

Gokceada is studded with historic towns and villages like Tepekoy, a picturesque hillside Greek settlement. It's dotted with stone houses and commands sweeping views over the island's rolling countryside. Zeytinli is another postcard-perfect village, known for its traditional Greek cafes. You can also escape to Kalekoy, a coastal village built around an ancient Genoese fortress.

Gokceada is brimming with atmospheric restaurants like Barba Yorgo Taverna, which serves up local delicacies, such as grilled octopus, goat stew and towering meze platters. Wash it down with a glass of the restaurant's famous house-made wine.

Elta-Ada offers a taste of the island's flourishing "field to fork" food scene. The organic farm produces some of Turkey's best olive oil, dairy products and preserves. You'll also find artisan stores selling homemade soaps, local honey and hand-painted ceramics.

Gokceada is a gateway to the Gallipoli Peninsula, especially popular with avid World War I historians. Wander along ANZAC Cove, gaze up at memorials and pay your respects at the moving Lone Pine Cemetery.

Getting around

Car and pedestrian ferries link Gokceada with Kabatepe, a headland on the Gallipoli Peninsula. Local "dolmus" minibuses run to major towns and villages, while rental cars offer the freedom to explore Gokceada independently. Canakkale Airport is 73 kilometres away.
