Cunda, also known as Alibey in Turkish (Greek: Hekatonisa or Μοσχονήσι/Moshonisi) is a small island in the Northwestern Aegean Sea in Ayvalık, part of Balıkesir Province of Turkey. It is close to Lesbos, Greece.
Cunda is linked to the mainland, to Ayvalık by a causeway. The island has got a typical resortified town Alibey and a bus and ferry link to Ayvalık.
The islands former Greek population was forced out in the course of the population exchange between Greece and Turkey but the Greek population was replaced by Cretan Turks, ensuring that the island retains a largely Greek atmosphere.
Poroselene bay in the north of the island is probably the islands major 'sight'. In antiquity it was the home of a dolphin who saved a drowning boy, and the dolphin was mentioned by the famous ancient writer Pausanias.
