Eceabat is a town on Gallipoli Peninsula in Eastern Thrace, northwestern Turkey. The town is located just opposite Çanakkale, the main city of the area, across the Straits of Dardanelles. Eceabat, formerly Maydos is a town and district of Çanakkale Province in the Marmara region, located on the eastern shore of the Gelibolu Peninsula, on the Dardanelles Strait.

On the northern banks of the Straits of Dardanelles, Eceabat is the nearest main town to WW1 battlefields and memorials of Gallipoli Peninsula and serves as the hub to visit there. It also offers some accommodation options for those preferring a quieter and nearer alternative than Çanakkale.

Eceabat lies on the main Çanakkale – Istanbul highway between Istanbul and Keşan, lying around 190 km away from Istanbul. Since all buses operating between Istanbul and Çanakkale cross the Straits via Eceabat, it’s possible to get on one in Istanbul and get off at Eceabat, most likely at the waterfront where they queue for the ferry.

HISTORICAL SITES

On the northern banks of the Straits of Dardanelles, Eceabat is the nearest main town to WWI battlefields and memorials of Gallipoli Peninsula and serves as the hub to visit there. It also offers some accommodation options for those prefering a quieter and nearer alternative than Çanakkale.

Eceabat is the nearest town to World War I Gallipoli Campaign battlefields of 1915, cemeteries and memorials to the more than 120,000 soldiers fallen from Turkey, the United Kingdom, France, Australia and New Zealand. The name Eceabat could be originated from the Arabic military word “Hijabat” which means the most forward command point from the battlefield; this could also explain the change from the original name Madytos.

Perhaps why you are at Eceabat in the first place is to visit battlefields and war memorials of Gallipoli. From Eceabat, taking either direction – west or east – will deliver you to the national park, however the route via west, although more scenic as it lies along the Dardanelles, is very winding and full of potholes quite a bit, so it will take a bit longer. The nearby village of Kilitbahir to west (which also has ferry links with Çanakkale) is full of pleasant traditional stone architecture and its impressive citadel dating back to 15th century is well worth a visit.
