How to get

The modern Marina near the medieval city of Rhodes is a gem in the local harbor. It offers yachting, a serene view of the Aegean Sea, and unique local crafts for sale.

Port Characteristics

The ambitious marina project on Rhodes faced skepticism due to initial construction halts caused by governmental issues. Surprisingly, it commenced operations in the summer of 2015, despite ongoing development. Initially barren, the harbor now boasts bars, eateries, boutiques, a gym with a spa, souvenir shops, and vehicle rental services.

The newly established Rhodes yacht marina takes pride in its capacity to accommodate 382 yachts and has plans to expand for up to 563 sailing vessels. This isn’t limited to smaller pleasure boats either; with water depths ranging from 5 to 6.5 meters, even mega yachts and cruise ships can dock during their sea voyages. Interestingly, it’s the only marina in Greece that can house boats up to 150 meters long, which is quite impressive for a marina in a relatively small city.

The port area boasts a shipyard and a dry dock, while a state-of-the-art control tower ensures continuous oversight and integrated management of the premises. The port aims to be one of the few yacht harbors globally to earn the «Green Flag» distinction. To achieve this, the port has initiatives to: — Generate power from renewable sources such as solar panels, coastal generators, and hydrogen electrolysis plants.

The marina has implemented a series of green initiatives:

  • CO2 Utilization: They’re capturing carbon dioxide for reuse.
  • Green Transport: Only electric vehicles are allowed on the docks.
  • Water Treatment: A pipeline system for purifying seawater has been constructed.
  • Recycling Program: They’re recycling waste, old sails, and parts of boats. Additionally, the marina ensures traveler safety with well-equipped fire stations featuring push-button alarm systems and fire-fighting tools, regularly maintained and updated. In case of power outages, the facility is equipped with backup generators to keep operations running smoothly.

Marina Amenities & Travel Options

Enthusiasts can hire various sized yachts for a short few hours or extend to several days. Smaller vessels can be rented starting at €100 per day. For the most luxurious and sizable yachts, expect to pay from €2,500 to €3,000 per day. Typically, the cost includes the services of a captain, eliminating the need for a personal boating license. Each dock has its offerings.

Modern marinas offer a range of services including digital connectivity and essential utilities. Guests can enjoy advanced Wi-Fi, ample parking, and well-maintained hygiene facilities, along with options for fueling their vessels. For those preferring smaller craft, there are alternatives to chartering large yachts, with the opportunity to venture out to sea in a modest boat. Vessels regularly depart from Piraeus, servicing various Aegean destinations such as Patmos, Leros, Kalymnos, and Kos. The journey to Rhodes can span 12 to 17 hours, depending on the number of port calls. Additionally, ferries from neighboring Turkish locales like Simi, Tilos, Bodrum, Fethiye, Datca, and Marmaris provide routes to and from Rhodes. Luxury cruise ships also frequent the marina situated east of the Old Town.

Rhodes Marina Location

The marina is situated around 2.5 kilometers from the historical part of the town and 4 kilometers from the city center of Rhodes. Access to the island is convenient via charter flights from various countries to Diagoras International Airport or budget airlines from Athens. It’s a 30-minute journey from the airport to the marina, which can be reached by taxi, rental vehicle, or local bus services. A stroll through the marina and the old town is a must-do, where the contrast between the modern, gleaming yachts and the ancient architecture creates a striking and exotic scene.


  • Caution is advised when docking in this area due to the presence of rocks and shallow areas on the north side of the harbor entrance.
  • If departing from the marina, hiring a diver is likely necessary to retrieve anchors from depths exceeding 20 meters.
  • For currency exchange, it’s recommended to avoid portside services as they are more expensive. Instead, walk 100 meters towards Rhodes where bank facilities offer better rates.
  • Vehicles are not permitted within the marina premises. Personal transport can be accommodated in the city or designated areas close to the dock.
  • Yacht rental rates vary significantly among providers, even for similar vessels. To save on costs, compare the offerings on different companies' websites before booking, as some may offer attractive discounts.
