Amasra

Amasra (pop. 7000) is one of the most spectacularly situated cities on the Black Sea Coast. Straddling two natural harbors with clean, sandy beaches, its natural beauty is striking: craggy cliffs rise above snaking shorelines, rocky islands, and rich blue waters. On top of that, the remains of its considerable medievel fortifications add historic charm and an almost surreal atmosphere. They also provide excellent vantage points from which to survey the town below. Today, however, the town also has several modern, well-equipped pensions and hotels (book ahead in summer), excellent seafood restaraunts, and a hassle-free, reasonably priced market for souvenirs (mostly wood work and embroidery).

Over 3000 years of trade and fishing have left Amasra the same quiet beach getaway that Queen Amastris was looking for in the 4th century BC when she founded the town on the site of Sesamos, an ancient Miletian port."
