Marina in Bartın
Amasra is a small Black Sea port town in the Bartın Province. The town is today much appreciated for its beaches and natural setting, which has made tourism the most important activity for its inhabitants. Amasra has two islands : the bigger one is called Büyük ada (Great Island) while the smaller one is called Tavşan adası (Rabbit Island). For centuries there have been two bays and two islands that have welcomed mariners from across the seas. Amasra is a pretty little town off by itself, set on a fortified promontory jutting northward into the Black Sea. Amasra is mostly a fishing town. The townspeople for centuries have always loved the sea and fish and the town has been a favored port in the stormy Black Sea. The fishermen, yacht sailors, several boats have remained at port awaiting the end of the storm and during the severe winter months the houses of Amasra have harbored fishermen for whole six-month seasons as they awaited the coming of spring. Situated on a peninsula and the island joined to it by an Isthmus, Amasra's geographical features are not readily apparent to first-time visitors. On one side of the peninsula is the Little Harbor and on the other the Big Harbor, a port sheltered by a breakwater that protects it from the Black Sea's destructive waves. The promontory at the tip of the peninsula is encircled by high Genoese-period defense walls, whose walls are laced with marble fragments left from previous civilizations.
