Cunda Island (Ali Bey Adası)
Like Ayvalık, Cunda Island was once predominantly Greek, and some Greek is still spoken here. The island has a mix of the two cultures in its food, music, and nightlife, and lately has been deliberately cultivating this, having realized the tourism potential.
The fishing town has good seafood restaurants lining its atmospheric quay; they're noted for their grilled çipura (a local fish) and for an amazing variety of Turkish and Greek seafood dishes served grilled, fried, baked, or in a cold seafood salad with interesting dressings.
