Kerpe is a small bay which has quite suitable geographic location in terms of north winds and which leans against the thick pine forest. For this reason, that famous wave of Black Sea cannot be seen here and it is very advantageous for the families who have children because the sea is not so much deep.

The whereabouts of Pink Rocks really amazes the people who see this place. While the rocks are in the water, they are very soft but they get though when they are got out of the water. Because of these features of the rock, they were used in constructing Sultan Ahmet Mosque and many historical works of art by being cut with human power in the shape of rectangles and by being brought to Istanbul by sea.
Cebeci ,which is 27 km to Kandira, is an ideal holiday paradise with its very clean sea, wide beaches, and magnificiant nature. It is the most common place for tent tourism compared to other coasts.

This island which is just 5 minutes to Cebeci coast by boat has numerous small bays in which you can go into the sea and you can embrace the nature by going away from the city life.

The furthest beaches of Kandira are in the whereabouts of Uzunkum in about 30 km distance. It is an untouched place which is not very well known yet. These beaches, which have the feature of being open sea, become a very suitable place for surfing while it is windy. This region in which there is not a very big touristy center has exactly a very wild attractiveness. It has as much as the opportunities such as motels and lodgings to meet the needs of the comings. Tents are very suitable for camping. Its beach is quite wide and long. This city, which is getting full of houses such as villas still, stands untouched because the distance is a lot and the roads are very ruined. These places will get its real value when the road which begins in Istanbul goes on as Black sea coast road.
