Skippers should know that the geographic coordinates of the Marine are 36ο 27΄ N και 28ο 13΄ E. It is an ideal choice for people arriving to the island by yacht, or for those who plan to do so. As it is the old port of the town, it is very close to the medieval town. Moreover, Mandraki is the most cosmopolitan place in the town of Rhodes. It is the meeting point of everybody and it is usually rather crowded: pedestrians walking along the dock, excursion boats and tourist boats for short excursions, fishing boats, big yachts and a real fleet of sailing boats.
As the facilities offered make it very popular, the Marine at Mandraki gets insufficient for the needs. Thus, it has already started the construction of a new, bigger Marine, of higher capacity. As it is planned, when completed, it will be the main marine of the town of Rhodes and the one of Mandraki will operate only as a supplementary one.
