Another major tourism project in Greece will be getting under way in about one year’s time, as the construction of the ultra-luxurious 600-million-euro Elounda Hills project in eastern Crete has taken another step toward becoming a reality.

The approval for the construction of the resort’s enormous marina, with a total cost of 20 million euros, has just been issued by the municipality of Aghios Nikolaos on Crete. The marina is expected to occupy approximately 43,000 square meters (462,848 square feet) of land and 123,000 square meters (1,323,960 square feet) atop the seabed.

The state-of-the-art facility, which is just part of the vast tourism complex planned by Vitaly Borisov, a Russian property investor, will be able to accommodate up to 202 luxury yachts.
