The permanent opening of the Larnaca Marina to the public was achieved after a period of 6 months during which its Management proceeded to carry out the necessary health and safety works and to ensure the safe presence of its visitors. Sidewalks, environmentally friendly lighting, pedestrian crossings, gates, and parking lots are just some of the projects carried out to create infrastructure. An infrastructure project of particular reference is the new security system with cameras that have the ability to monitor and record all areas of the Marina ensuring the safety and protection of boat owners and visitors.
The purpose of the company is that the Marina remains at the disposal of the public throughout the first phase of the project during which the development of its marine area and part of the onshore developments will take place. It will have a capacity of 650 berths for various lengths of boats from 5 to 125 meters.
The new Marina will have a refueling station for boats in a new breakwater as well as a modern office building that will host Marina's offices, the sea scouts, restaurants, cafes, recreation areas, and shops. The upgraded services that the new Larnaca Marina will offer will include the provision of water, electricity, internet, refueling, and maintenance for all categories of vessels.
