Derepazarı is a town and district of Rize Province on the Black Sea coast of Turkey between the cities of Rize and Trabzon, 8 km weast of the city of Rize.

Features

The district consists of a small town on the coast and an area of countryside in the mountains that rise up behind.

The Black Sea is clean in the area although there are no sandy beaches and the population of Derepazarı rises in summer with hoidaymakers coming to enjoy the coast. Furthermore the mainstay of the local economy is growing and processing tea, and in summer there is seasonal work in the tea industry also.

The town centre is small as Derepazarı is very close to the city of Rize and therefore people go there for shopping etc.

Climate

Derepazarı has a humid subtropical climate (Köppen: Cfa).
