The Didim Marina in Altinkum has been much talked about over the last few years – to the degree that many lost faith in it actually happening
On 22nd February 2007 the doubting Thomases finally ate their words. Construction of the new $52 million D-Marin Didim Marina project was launched at an official inauguration ceremony attended by Transport minister Binali Yildirim. Marine builder Doĝus unveiled the layout of the 287,000m² marina which it is hoped will be open by summer 2009.
The Marina will have a yacht club, a heliport, a capacity for 623 berthed yachts and 600 yachts in dry dock, a yacht lift for 300 and 100 tonnes, and a swimming pool. There will also be a shopping centre, supermarkets, yacht equipment shops, a fitness centre and sports facilities, banks, restaurants and a cultural centre.
The marina will also house ferryboat management for cruises to the Greek Islands of Kalimnos, Kos and Leros, as well as a customers post, port authority facilities and a passport control unit.
The Didim-Altinkum Marina is now completed and wil open in May 2009.
