Turkish Black Sea Coast travel guide

4
Bodies of Water · Lookouts · Specialty Museums
Turkish Black Sea Coast is an anomaly in the country, isolated by a wall of mountains that trap damp winds and create a high amount of precipitation. As a result, the land is lush with evergreen trees, and thrives on tobacco and tea plantations, citrus groves, and cherry orchards. This rain-lovers paradise yields rich flora and fauna, crater lakes, waterfalls, rivers, and streams for tourists to explore by raft or canoe, or on foot. Swimmers will find cooler waters here, veiled by a seemingly permanent cloud of mist.
