On the hillside 2km southeast of Atatürk Alanı, Boztepe has fine city and sea views, tea gardens and restaurants. In ancient times, it harboured temples to the Persian sun god Mithra. Later, the Byzantines built churches and monasteries here. Today, it's a top place for a sunset beer and there's live music on summer evenings.

Frequent Boztepe dolmuşes run from near the southeastern end of Atatürk Alanı (TL1.50).
