The Karpass Peninsula (Greek: Καρπασία, Turkish: Karpaz; Armenian: Կարպաս), also known as Karpasia or Karpas is a long, finger-like peninsula that is one of the most prominent geographical features of the island of Cyprus. Its farthest extent is Cape Apostolos Andreas, and its major population centre is the town of Rizokarpaso (Greek: Ριζοκάρπασο, Turkish: Dipkarpaz). Since 1974 the peninsula resides within the internationally-unrecognised Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
Karpaz Gate Marina (KGM) opened in the Karpass peninsula in May 2011. It's a marina destination in the eastern Mediterranean and will be an important maintenance centre. It is the first luxury yacht marina to open in Northern Cyprus, having facilities to accommodate boats up to 65 metres (213 feet) in length, offering berths for 300 yachts, including 16 luxury "superyachts".
