Turkey’s new superyacht marina, Palmarina Bodrum


Bought in 2011 and reconstructed by Palmali Group, Palmarina Bodrum is Turkey’s latest rising superyacht marina. Serving customers since 2013, the marina is located on the Turkish Riviera, and is helping to transform the perception of the region.

The marina has a mooring capacity for 710 boats in total, and is designed to make the most of spaces for their guests and the general public, an example of such being the many concerts, exhibitions and activities they host all year round.

A 105-store renovated mall with local and international brands as well as renowned restaurants and cafes is also on offer at Palmarina Bodrum, including the first Nobu Restaurant in Turkey, the glamorous eatery Cipriani, and the entertainment brand Billionaire Club, to name but a few.

Accommodation alternatives for guests include Palmalife Marina Hotel or Palmarina Boutique Hotel, who offer personalised detoxes, massage facilities, a spa and fitness services from Palmarina Bodrum Spa & Fitness.

Hosting visitors all year long, the establishment of the marina has changed the lifestyle of the area seemingly indefinitely from a collection of sleepy fishing villages into a prestigious superyacht attraction, with high profiles visitors such as Bill Gates, Roman Abramovich and Mick Jagger.
