Twisting by the Pool HDR

The Galatasaray Islet (also known as Su Islet), (Turkish: Galatasaray Adası, Suada) is a small island on the Bosphorus strait off Kuruçeşme neighborhood in Istanbul, Turkey, which is owned by Galatasaray Sports Club.

 

Its unique location just north of the Bosphorus Bridge, with the irresistible view of the Bosphorus, makes it a one of a kind facility that houses bars, restaurants and two swimming pools. Only 165 m (540 ft) far from the European coast,[1] the islet is reachable by free ferry service.

 

In Autumn 2002, construction has started to turn the Galatasaray Islet into one of the most prominent landmarks of the city. Totally rebuilt, it serves since July 2007 the Galatasaray community and Istanbulers as an entertainment and recreation center
