The shipyard, consisting of five docks and constructed in 1226 by the Sultan Alaaddin Keykubat, is 56 metres long and 44 metres deep. The entrance to the shipyard is behind the Red Tower. The shipyard also contains offices and a little mosque located on the left of the entrance.
At night all these buildings are illuminated creating a fantastic sight.
The shipyard can be visited at closer quarters by renting a small fishing boat. A trip around the rocky peninsula, where you can see the shipyard, the lovers cave, the pirates cave and the phosphorous cave, costs approximately 10 euros.
