Local nameBurgaz Adası
LocationIstanbul, Turkey

Burgazada, Burgaz Adası, or shortly Burgaz is the third largest of the Princes' Islands in the Sea of Marmara, near Istanbul, Turkey.

It is officially a neighbourhood in the Adalar district of Istanbul. Burgazada is a common setting and even a major theme for writer Sait Faik Abasıyanık, where he also resided. Today, his residence is kept as a museum. In 2003, Burgazada suffered a terrible forest fire, losing 4 square kilometres of its entire woodland.

The island consists of a single hill 2 kilometres across. Demetrius I of Macedon, one of the Diadochi of Alexander the Great, built a fort here and named it after his father Antigonus I Monophthalmus. The island took this name, but is generally known by the Turks today as simply "Burgaz."
