Things to do

There’s plenty to ensure your crew is entertained throughout your stay at the Dunya shipyard. Our on-site gym will ensure all can keep fit while, for those keen to keep their handicap down, there are several golf courses a short drive away. For others who prefer high-octane pursuits, there are excellent go-karting facilities within a 10-minute drive as well as race track days available at the Intercity Istanbul Park, where F1 races were held up until a few years ago. If skiing is your passion, a two-hour drive from the shipyard will take you to one of the best ski resorts in Turkey, ideal for weekend getaways. For nights out, the chic area of Kadikoy is close by, with numerous bars and restaurants as well as cinemas showing English language films. Alternatively, you can travel into the heart of the city to enjoy the nightlife around Bebek.

Whatever you choose, you will find this vibrant city is a fascinating place in which to spend time while also offering incredible value for money.
For getting home or visiting friends and family, Sabiha Gokcen International airport is only 15 minutes away with access to worldwide destinations, including three flights a day to London, daily flights to Nice and Barcelona as well as many more.
