Our Green Story

Did you know that Karpaz Gate Marina is amongst some of the world’s most sustainable marina resorts?

The resort was developed with a respect for the natural beauty of the unspoilt area in mind. Planning the design of the resort encompassed an eco-friendly approach within the infrastructure.

Today, as a fully operational marina resort, with an on-site 52 cabin nautically themed boutique hotel, outdoor and indoor pool, beach club and bar, hamam, spa and Hemingway’s Resto bar, environmental sensitivity and sustainability are at the heart of all of our operations. Guests are offered a truly immersive experience within this natural marine and countryside setting being surrounding by unspoilt landscape of North Cyprus.

Karpaz Gate Marina Resort is surrounded by the nature of the untouched Karpaz Peninsula, inspiring a sense of freedom and relaxation. When the site was selected for the Resort development, the secluded bay on the northern shores of the north-east pointing peninsula of Cyprus was a natural choice for our resort’s location. With its mostly untouched, large areas of rural, agricultural natural land It remains relativelyundiscovered by many tourists who tend to opt for visiting the busier tourist areas of Cyprus. Karpasia features almost 50 sandy beaches, including Golden Beach – the most remote beach in Cyprus. The pristine, natural environment is home to many inland and marine species, including sea turtles, and the tip of the peninsula is a protected natural heritage area.

To become sustainable in this area, which previously lacked any kind of infrastructure, we needed the resort to be self sufficient in its production of energy. Services such as electricity, water, sewage and waste all had to be specially developed for the location which allowed Karpaz Gate Marina to play a key role in development of the area as a whole. Strong community relations had to be nurtured and continue to be sustained through employment, training, financial contribution to sports and education of the younger generation and usage of local suppliers as much as possible.

Overlooking the first international yacht marina in North Cyprus, our new pampering boutique accommodation combines touches of nautical flair and imaginative design all working in harmony with the resort’s deep affinity with the sea, connection to the environment and respect for the natural beauty of North Cyprus. The hotel’s design and ethos maintain the marina development’s sensitivity to the environment and support sustainability through its choice of ecological materials and accessories.

Vibrant trees and flowers thrive in the on-site nursery, while the vegetable and herb garden and green house provide fresh produce straight to the plate alongside home-made bread and fresh, locally-sourced dairy, fish and meat.

Creating an aquarium in the marina basin, a no fishing rule is in place to protect the wildlife and preserve the crystal-clear water – in support of the protection of the many species which thrive throughout the peninsula, both on land and in the warm, clear waters and sea caves along the coast. We allow only non-motorised water activities at our Beach Club, like kayaks, paddle boards and SUP to minimise water pollution.

Eco-friendly Karpaz Gate Marina has a desalination plant. Water usage is carefully controlled, there are leak detection systems in place and berth holders are metered to encourage minimal water use. We adopt a number of ecological and recycling initiatives. The site includes its own waste water treatment plant which purifies the water and then feeds directly back into a local irrigation system to water the vast local landscape. We encourage our berth holders and visitors participation in helping to support this system by offering black water services free of charge to ensure there are no barriers to adopting the initiative for visitors. We also promote minimal usage of non-recycled materials like plastics and berth holders have easy access to recycling bins.
