The five-star gold anchor-rated Karpaz Gate Marina has announced a 10% increase in the total number of people visiting its luxury facility in Northern Cyprus between January and August this year when compared to 2014.
The figures for 2015 reflect a rise in general visitors using the marina’s beach club, watersports centre, restaurants and other facilities, as well as an increase in boat owners taking up short-term moorings during the first eight months of the year, with a significant growth in numbers noticed specifically in July and August.
Karpaz Gate Marina improved the benefits and incentives for visiting boat owners this year, introducing new berthing packages with free leisure and entertainment options, transportation around the region, and discounts for using on-site facilities. Additional activities were also offered for the first time, including dinghy sailing with the new Karpaz Gate Marina Sailing Club, and yoga classes.
The positive trend in visitors underway at Karpaz Gate Marina coincides with an encouraging overall picture for tourism in North Cyprus, with official statistics released from the Government’s Department of Tourism in September stating an increase of 10.1% people travelling by air and sea to North Cyprus for the period January to August 2015.
In addition to local people and land tourists taking time to enjoy the facilities, Karpaz Gate Marina Harbour Master, Deniz Akaltan predicted more boat owners, ranging from superyacht owners to cruising couples and families in mid-size boats, will discover the advantages of berthing at the marina.
He said, “Berthing prices at Karpaz Gate Marina offer excellent value for a beautiful, safe and convenient place for your boat. Plus, we have all the facilities anyone could require, such as an extensive dry dock area, berth services and leisure options, and a stunning location on the Karpaz Peninsula surrounded by nature, historical sites and pristine beaches.
“We have just completed only our fourth season since opening, but have already established ourselves as a marina willing to go above and beyond to please our customers. We are committed to strive to make even more improvements and I encourage boat owners to come and experience everything we have to offer.”
