The most prominent historical sites, tourist attractions, and recreational areas in Küçükçekmece:

A unique feature of Küçükçekmece is its position. It is bounded on the north by the famed Başakşehir area and divided from the Avcilar district by the Küçükçekmece Lake.

However, many locations in Küçükçekmece captivate tourists and visitors, the most significant of which are:

1- Yarımburgaz Cave (Yarımburgaz Mağarası):

Located in the Güvercintepe neighborhood, this cave is one of Küçükçekmece's most popular tourist destinations. It has been designated as a first-class natural archaeological site due to its antiquity, which approaches 2000 years. The cave is divided into two sections: a bottom cave with a 500-meter length and an upper cave with a 52-meter length with each section having its own entrance. The cave, which is connected to the town of Altınşehir, is 15 meters above sea level, and it was most likely utilized as a church, based on the interior architecture.

2- Küçükçekmece Lake:

It measures around 10 kilometers in length and 6 kilometers in width. It reaches a depth of 22 meters at its deepest point. According to research conducted on the lake, it is thought that the city of Bathenoa, which was devastated as a result of the big earthquake that happened in 557 AD, exists underneath this lake. Küçükçekmece Lake is regarded as an ideal location for individuals to escape the city's hustle and bustle as well as the stress of work. Running, water skiing, and various barbeque places are available on the lake. It is particularly distinguished by its closeness to the Florya neighborhood, which is home to several tourist attractions.
