Yalikavak marina a prototype coastal beauty
has gained its reputation in recent years as a go-to destination for ex-pats and investors alike. Sitting at the west-north side of the Bodrum peninsula in Turkey, the marina has sought a revolutionary makeover that made it a luxury hotspot. Turkey has had a groundbreaking renovation in its economy, way of life, and politics which has made it one of the most important countries in the world as it borders Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
The Palmarina epicenter is arguably boasting one of the most impressive luxury hubs in the world that host brands such as Dior, Rolex, Beymen, Zuma, Nusr-et, Novikov Bodrum, Missoni, and so much more. However, what is more impressive is the ability of Yalikavak Marina to be among the top of the leader board with the ten best marinas in the world and still have its traditional laid-back charm. Yalikavak used to be a small fishing town but it still maintains that mellow tingle.

As Yalikavak Marina continues to exceed expectations for tourist attractions, innovation, and investment deals, the eyes turn to the sustainability factor which is what many are regarding now as the most important factor moving forward. Since Yalikavak Marina represents Turkey’s nautical side and sea tourism, it is only fitting that Yalikavak seeks new innovative ways to deal with sustainability.
Going Green is the Way for Marinas:
There is no doubt that nowadays we are looking at energy through a different lens. As we continue to exhaust earth’s energy resources and pollute the air, water, and earth, a lot of eyes have shifted to the everyone’s the culprit mindset. Giant metropolitan cities, pipelines, internal combustion engines, factories, and oil transporting vehicles are certainly in the most wanted for polluting the environment, but that also goes for marinas. Certainly, anyone can be the culprit, but when we’re talking about the top Marina in Turkey that rivals Greece and other countries on the luxury side, if there would be lack of efforts for environmentalism would be equally as bad as polluting the earth, which is not the case. Yalikavak Marina has proven a great care to protect the wildlife and gaze the future by enforcing modern technology to protect the environment.
A large portion of the victims of pollution is in the water and while there aren’t any large ocean-going ships that use bunker fuel in many marinas, the push for limiting them is extremely important in the wake of today’s world.
Customers have also become cautious and intentional about their choices when it comes to protecting wildlife by contributing to eco-friendly options. Many studies point to the positive outcome that eco-friendly brands and corporations have on the environment and on the customer’s satisfaction rate.
The New Generation:
The yachting industry is currently under construction for the purpose of the environment helped by a new generation of owners and investors with hopes for sustainability. This luckily goes for individuals and businesses toward greener practices in marinas as well. The reason for that is because marinas benefit the environment and the local community while meeting return-on-investment goals that can help the growth of multi-billion investment markets.
Marinas are in on this notion as the use of renewable energy sources, fuel-efficient technology, and the development of effective collaboration between corporations and individuals can make the industry of marinas more financially stable and adherent to national and international maritime policy which is underway. Moreover, the use of eco-friendly tools is effective for marketing and management strategies to improve efficiency reduce waste, and ultimately increase their profitability.
A World-Class Marina:
The effort to go green is not alien to Turkey’s maritime industry. (The IC Cesme Marina that is situated on the shores of the Aegean Sea boasts an impressive record for global attention concerning efforts to go green. This includes planting olive trees close to the beach and using a large colony of mussels to filter out water pollution in the sea). Since Yalikavak Marina represents Turkey’s nautical side and sea tourism, it is only fitting that Yalikavak seeks new innovative ways to deal with sustainability. These efforts along with other projects have helped them in getting the Green World Awards in the year 2018 which was a big step forward.These efforts along with other projects have helped them in getting the Green World Awards in the year 2018 which was a big step forward.

Yalikavak is not out of the discussion either as its beaches have been awarded the highly sought-after blue flag in the beach club Xuma in Kudur Bay. The bustling Yalikavak marina is also known for the world-famous exhibitions around the world in Dubai, Moscow, and Monaco. In addition to that, the Marina is the main host and sponsor for the charter show Turkish Yachting & Brokers Association, the American International Game Fish Association as well as the annual International Marine Festival and Sailing Race “The Bodrum Cup”. All of these events are not only the best opportunity to make discuss new projects in the marina, but they are also a great way to introduce new ways to help the environment as many of the participants and sponsors are wealthy decision-makers in the sea shipping industry which are largely held accountable for a lot of the sea pollution.
The New Way Forward:
The move to a more green way of doing things is not only important, it’s imminent. We are beyond the point of arguing about the validity of the push for environmentalism and looking for real change. Therefore, the smart and sane strategy is to make the right moves forward. It’s now time to be more proactive in the approach for greener policies. For the Yalikavak Marina, this isn’t just a way to dodge maritime green policies, it’s a way to stand out and represent itself as a friend and an ally of nature. Virtually all yacht and sea enthusiasts would support efforts that can help the health sustainability of the sea and marinas are important in this discussion such as:
The Electric Energy
The Water Purification
Oils and Fuel
The Solar Energy
The Waste Management systems (i.e. Seabins )
Reducing ocean plastics and plastic use
Rapid charging for electric boats
Yalikavak’s Quest for Green Blue:
In the discussion of the green policies around the world, one begins to wonder about how far would marinas go to help the environment. Specifically, is Yalikavak willing to challenge the norms and stand out as not only the luxury epicenter of Turkish marinas but as a beacon of hope and an example to follow?
As previously established, this is about standing out and doing the right thing. Pollution has certainly weakened the environmental structure of the sea and will continue to do so if we do not make an effort to change and this starts with large corporations such as marinas.
There is also a lurking mystery of whether or not Yalikavak marina is indeed interested in implement new projects in sustainability. Is Yalikavak management interested in participating in the global effort to change and become a leader in the push for green marinas around the world? How are they going about this change and what is in for the future remains to be seen. However, it would be a delight if they are indeed interested in recruiting the right tools and team for the right task. We are watching in great pride and admiration.
Afterall Yalikavak Marina is like a prototype of the ancient Greek autonomous cities operating as countries, supporting the regional economy and educating the youth in independency.
