Welcome to Cunda (Alibey Island)

The ferry docks at a small quay lined with fish restaurants. Behind these sits a small, distinguished-looking town made up of old (and in parts rather dilapidated) Greek stone houses. As with Ayvalık, the people here were compelled into a population exchange in the early 1920s, in this instance with Muslims from Giritli (Crete).

Just to the east of the ferry pier is the town’s main square. Behind the square is a small tourist market with stalls selling jewellery and other trinkets.
