Başiskele is district of Kocaeli Province and a sub municipality of Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality in the Marmara region of Turkey. The mayor is Hüseyin Ayaz (AKP).


Başiskele is a relatively new district, constituted in 2008. The municipality of Başiskele, which covers the whole area of the district, is a merger of the former independent municipalities of Kullar, Yeniköy, Bahçecik, Karşıyaka (before named Döngel) and Yuvacık. The name "Başiskele" (Headquay") was before the name of a neighborhood, close to the coast of the Sea of Marmara, already known by that name in the 16th century.
