The Cleopatra Marina is located on the site of a shipyard at Aktion peninsula, right at the entrance to the Gulf Ambracian on the west coast of Greece’s mainland. On the opposite side of the canal which connects the Gulf to the Ionian Sea, lies the port city of Preveza, which is connected to the peninsula by a tunnel; close to the marina is also Aktion international airport, which is not to be und...

Overall, in the Cleopatra Marina has 100 berths available and for each place power and water connection is available. Some berths are reserved for charter companies. The electricity and water columns were renewed in 2012. In the eastern part of the harbor are sanitary facilities with showers and toilets, and at the northern entrance to the marina is a gas station.
The system consists of floating pontoons. In case of lots of wind, lying in the harbor is quite restless and flow turbulences make the docking not always so easy. However, the marina staff is very helpful. On both sides of the road, which passes east of the port, is a sufficiently big parking place available. The marina also includes a yard with about 1,000 dry berths.
Shopping The Cleopatra Marina has a mini market and a nautical shop for yacht demands on the grounds of the adjacent marina Aktion. Other services are offered in Preveza town. There are several supermarkets and a market hall which complete the offer.
Food and Leisure On the grounds of the marina is a restaurant. Other than that, there is no other gastro-offer in the harbor area. In Preveza, on the opposite side of the bay, some good, inexpensive restaurants and taverns are settled. The area around the marina is less attractive and offers nothing worth seeing but as you stroll in the old town or along the scenic waterfront of Preveza you can pass the time. The ruins of the former Roman 'Winner town' Nikopolis, about 7 km north of the city, are definitely worth a visit. For younger guests, the marina has a playground behind the restaurant.
