Maltepe is a suburb of Istanbul that sits between the districts of Kadikoy to its west, and Kartal to its east, and is on the coastline of the Sea of Marmara. Maltepe’s population rapidly increased from the 1970's onwards after completion of the Bosphorus Bridge making it possible to commute into the city centre, and today there are buses that run along the E5 highway to the bridge with dolmus minibuses running to the ferry docks at Kadikoy.
Accommodation in MaltepeThe residents of Maltepe either live in quiet tree-lined streets of 4-6 storey apartment blocks that are surrounded by gardens, or in more modern gated housing complexes with security guards that have tennis courts and children's playgrounds.

Along its coastline are very nice cafés and bars, similar to what you would find in Kadikoy or Taksim .
