Ataköy Marina, a port of entry to Turkey, is located on the European coast of Istanbul at the southern end of the Bosphorus Straits. The marina is a peaceful place away from the noise and bustle of Istanbul, but is easily accessible. As well as a popular clubhouse, the marina has an open-air swimming pool with panoramic views over Istanbul and the Sea of Marmara. Ten miles offshore, the Princess Islands, on which the only transport are horse-drawn carriages, have many secure harbours and anchorages for yachts, and restaurants serving fresh seafood. Ataköy Marina Yacht Club organises several international yacht rallies.
