Eceabat

Eceabat, on the Aegean coast, is the closest town to the most-visited battlefields and cemeteries. From where the Eceabat ferry lands on the northern front (car ferries make the 25-minute crossing from Çanakkale to Eceabat every hour until midnight in both directions), it's a 20-minute drive east via the single road skirting the coast and then crossing the peninsula to get to the town itself. The town is small and most of the restaurants and hotels listed here (except for the Hotelu Kum) are along the waterfront.
