With the hard work and efforts of TUDAV, the Marine Park of Gökçeada was established in 1999 because of the aesthetic and ecological value of the area characterized by large Posidonia meadows and hard bottoms comprised of macroalgal communities and coralligenous habitats. The park receives approximately 7000 tourists/year using the bay for sunbathing, swimming and recreational fisheries during high season (June to September). Please click for more details.
