The island takes its name from the Greek word for “shining stone”.
The first settlement on the island dates back to Hellenic antiquity. The settlement, connected with sea colonies in the area, was continued by the Ottomans in the 15th century. The majority of the island’s population was Greek Orthodox, and Greeks and Turks coexisted for centuries.
With an area of 110 km2, Marmara Island, which belongs to the municipality of Marmara, is the largest in the Marmara Sea. The highest point is the İlyas Hill, also known as the Nato Hill, at 710m.
There are five neighbourhoods, today known as Çınarlı, Gündoğdu, Asmalı, Topağaç and Saraylar.
Çınarlı village is charming, and well-known for its century-old, huge plane trees. It also houses a little museum with archeological finds from the area.
In the Asmalı and Gündoğdu neighbourhoods with their old Greek houses the residents, predominantly from the Black Sea, make a living from tourism, olive groves, fishing and transportation.
Topağaç, most suited for agriculture, is where locals grow most of the vegetables on sale at the green grocers.
Saraylar in the North is the site of the antique marble quarries and its open-air museum. The town is renowned for its marble - hence the name of Marmara - since it became a colony of Prokonnessos Miletus in 844 BC. Prokonnessos marble was used in the construction of the Artemis Temple in Ephesus (4th century BC), and the palace of the Satrap of Halicarnassus, Mausolos.
Marble from Marmara Island was furthermore an important resource during the Roman Empire, and in Ottoman times it was used for mosques and palaces. It is still extracted today.
Due to the fact that marble absorbs moisture, humidity is very low on the island.
How to get there
There are daily IDO sea catamarans ( Denis Otobus) coming to Marmara Island from Istanbul (Yenikapı or Bostancı). The journey takes 3 hours.
Additionally Gestaş ferries offer transfer several times/day, and private ferries from Tekirdag and Erdek.
