The Arab Tourism Organization (ATO) has begun work on a new yacht marina in the Gulf of Saros, a tourist destination on the Aegean Sea in the northwestern Edirne province of Turkey.

The new project emerged following a meeting between ATO President Dr Banadar Bin Fahad al Fuhaid and Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, who recommended Fuhaid invest in tourism opportunities in Edirne.

Edirne Mayor Günay Özdemir stated the ATO had identified locations for investment and reached a positive conclusion about Enez, a touristic town situated next to Lake Dalyan and 10 miles by sea from Alexandroupoli in Greece.

As the Greek city has its own airport, the nearby town of Edez is an attractive location for investment in the tourist industry. ATO say the marina will make an ideal place to secure yachts in the winter months and to set off for other countries during the summer.
