Amasra is in Black Sea Turkey.
Amasra is a seaside resort on the Black Sea. It's population is normally 6,000, though this explodes in the summer to around 25,000. Most summer holiday-goers are from Istanbul or Ankara. The best time to visit may be in September, after the crowds have left.
Busses from Safranbolu take about 3 hours, and cost around 10 YTL. If you can't find any buses going directly to Amasra, you should get to Bartin, from where there are regular minibuses covering the rest of the way to Amasra.
Amasra Museum which was once selected as the best small museum in Turkey. Direkli Kaya. Persian Princess Amastris swimmed in the pool here. Bakacak Tepesi (Hill). Best view of the city. Kuşkayası. It is the only road monument in Anatolia. Kemere Bridge.
Swim at the nearby beaches. Take a short (45min, about 10 TL) boat tour around Amasra, starting in Amasra's harbour.

Traditional cold drink in Turkey is "ayran" which diluted yoghurt with some salt. However beer and wine is also available.
Going south, catch a dolmus to Bartin (5TL, 30min), there you can connect to Safranbolu & Karabük, Kastamonu etc.
There is a 10.30am bus to Cide (17 TL, takes about 2h, leaves sometimes already 15 min earlier than scheduled!), starting in front of Amasra's main post office (ptt). Arriving in Cide around 12.15pm, you can connect with a 2pm Dolmus to Inebolu via Doganyurt (20TL, around 3h, arriving at about 5.15pm in Inebolu). Inebolu has several services to Kastamonu (at noon by S.S. Karadeniz dolmus (max. 2h, 12 TL) and bus at 2.15pm and probably at least one more later). The next day you can travel from Inebolu to Sinop: 2.15pm with changing in Kastamonu, takes probably at least 7h; at 3.15pm there is direct service by Ulusoy bus company along the coast road (150 km, probably at least 5h).
