Reviews for Karpaz Gate Marina
If there is a better marina in the Med we haven't found it!, 2016-06-27
Captain: , Fremantle (325)

Best marina that we've been to in 10 years of sailing the Med. (I don't count Porto Cervo Yacht Club as a marina.) Great facilities, fantastic service and, June 2016, very reasonable prices, both for berth and restaurant.

We have used it as a base for exploring, by land, TRNC and TRC, as taking a boat into the south, having been in the north, is theoretically impossible and anecdotally a risky bureaucratic nightmare practically.

Downside: a) it's a remote location and unless you are happy to chill by the infinity pool and drink and eat at Hemingways you will need wheels.
b) there are limited technical staff. OK for small non-complex work but I would be extremely circumspect, or desperate, to rely on them for a major or technically complex problem

live in a quasi paradise, 2015-05-28
Captain: , karpaz gate marina (10)

we have choosen to move from Italy (Sicily) to north Cyprus and to KGM and now, after a year, we are pleased with the result.
all things aren't perfect as in the brochure, but mediterranean countries aren't like the Switzerland and the people are extremely friendly and happy to help you, always.
if you'll rent a car, remember that maps are very poor-quality, names onthe map are almost in greek, but on the signal are in turkish. don't be afraid to get lost, it will possible to meet very interesting people/animals and discover incredible places.
the greek site is as any western site, the same that stay at home.
the refill LPG costs 18 %u20AC for 10 kg
the first hotel & casino is close to Iskele, it means more than half an hour to go.
this place is perfect to hear nature: donkeys bray just over the road and birds twitter and nest close/in your boats. it's very better than the casino

Nice to visit-in the summer., 2013-01-02
Captain: , Largs (24)

We are live aboards and have been here for the last 18 months.
If you do not have transport it is totally isolated. The British restaurant called DEKS will collect and return you to the Marina if you give them a telephone call. They(DEKS) serve excellent food at very reasonable prices well worth a visit or two.
The Marina staff are all very friendly and helpfull. Anew beach club has opened Free to berth holders.

New Marina, trying to drum up business, 2012-08-31
Captain: , Green Cove Springs, FL (1604)

Well built marina. Electrical system redone after a marina emeployee was electricuted just after opening. I gring this up because the electrical system now is first rate. The area is not a lot to do but there is a great British restaurant about 4 km that serves the BEST fish and chips for hundreds of miles around on Fridays. Marina "Rack" prices are high but they will offer discounts as they are not full.
