The Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure is starting its studies for the long-awaited cruise port project in Fethiye, one of the most important tourism regions of Turkey.
Years ago, discussions were held for the construction of the project, which was prepared with the encouragement of Fethiye Municipality, Fethiye Chamber of Commerce and Industry and tourism investors in the region. The Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure is starting studies and project studies at two locations in Fethiye for the cruise port.
In Fethiye, which is visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists every year, cruise ships dock and carry tourists with lifeboats. Cruise ships with a length of 350 meters will be able to dock at the pier to be built for the arrival of large ships. The new pier, which will be prepared with a concept that can be preferred by the world’s most valuable yachts, will be positioned at least 500 meters off the shore.
Within the scope of the project, where two different alternative locations will be evaluated, the environment, nature, population and other effects will be examined and port access roads will be planned. The EIA Report and plans, which will be prepared as a result of studies that will take approximately one year, will be submitted to the approval of the ministry.
Fethiye, which attracts tourists with its Ölüdeniz, Butterfly Valley, Kabak Bay, paragliding, canyon and rafting areas, aims to attract cruise and mega yacht tourists to the region and provide economic gain.
