Safety:Very safe

Amasra is generally a safe place for solo female travelers. The locals are friendly and welcoming, crimes are relatively low, and the local authorities are responsive. However, as with any destination, it's still essential to maintain common precautions such as avoiding isolated areas, especially at night, and keeping a close watch on personal belongings.

The key attractions are close to each other and you will rarely need public transport unless you plan to visit the nearby areas. Turkish people are known for their hospitality and are often more than happy to assist you. Communication might be a challenge as not many locals speak English, but with digital translator tools or a phrasebook, you should manage just fine.
