Yalikavak Marina: A Superyacht Hub to Rival the Greats

Yalikavak in Turkey is an attractive and sleepy little fishing village on the coast of Turkey, which until recently was only known for her quaint charm and proximity to historic marvels. However, the dazzling beauty and seclusion of Yalikavak has recently been discovered thanks to the development of a major commercial development within the town: the Yalikavak Marina, known as Palmarina Bodrum by PALMALI Group.

Completed in June 2012 with a glittering grand opening ceremony, Palmarina Bodrum has brought Yalikavak into the modern era, completely transforming Yalikavak into a stylish and sophisticated luxury tourist hub.

With 620 berths which can accommodate up to 70 superyachts measuring 50m to 135m, Palmarina Bodrum has been developed to keep up with the growing demand for superyacht berths along the east coast of Europe. Furthermore, the Turkish marina has proven itself worthy of recognition, having won the Yacht Harbour Association’s 2018 Golden Anchor Award.  

Palmarina Bodrum has also been designed specifically with yacht owners in mind, from the luxury boutique shops that line the palm-studded promenade to the stylish contemporary hotels that sit on the white sands of the marina island.

Yacht owners can take time off the water and indulge in the opulence of the world-famous Billionaire Club, renowned for attracting a global jet-setting crowd. The Billionaire Club features a 700sqm pool, a large nightclub where famous DJs are known to host is located on the 20,000sqm private island off Palmarina.

Palmalife Marina Hotel-winner of the 2015 “The Most Luxurious Hotel in the Middle East” award- and Palmarina Boutique Hotel have been built specifically for yacht owners looking for the comfort and class of a 5-star hotel featuring the style and artistry of modern architecture. Other highlights for both owners and crew include the Sailors Pub, Palmarina Bodrum Maritime Museum, art galleries, and a natural seawater swimming pool.

With glossy storefront windows and modern aesthetics, the 106 designer stores of Palmarina attract shopaholics from around the world looking to buy beautiful designer clothes or bespoke hand-crafted decorative items.

For all the foodies out there, look no further than the delightfully delicious menus provided along the promenade by multiple world-class restaurants from the delicately handcrafted sushi of Zuma, to the masters of perfectly seasoned meat at Nusr-et.

Palmarina Bodrum is one of the most opulent and stylish new marinas in Europe at the minute, looking forward to welcoming and catering new yacht owners, guests and crew alike in the utmost luxury.
