Bozcaada is an island town located within the borders of Çanakkale. The population of the county is 2,613, which is up to 10 thousand during the summer and official holidays. The population of Adana has begun to increase in recent years with people who have settled in here and want to escape from the complexities of big cities. In Bozcaada, where the Turks and the Greeks lived together for over 500 years, the population of the Greek Cypriot people living in the present day is quite low.

Bozcaada's proximity to major cities such as İzmir and Istanbul also played a major role in this island's popular holiday locations. Ezine has a connection with the island from the land with the ferry services made over Geyikli which is a town. Bozcaada is located approximately 6 kilometers away from Geyikli.
