    About this property

    • Nissos Makri is a private island, with a total surface of 993,900 sqm and a stunning seashore, whose perimeter has been measured at 7,280 m. The clean and inviting waters, the verdant grounds of the island and its advantageous location in a complex of small islands close to Greece’s mainland create an amazing environment for any kind of development. The island is owned by one private individual and there are clear and marketable title deeds; thus, the island is readily available for transfer. Additionally, all the necessary certificates are in place (forestry, archaeology, planning, infrastructure etc.).

      The island offers great opportunity for development. According to the standing laws, it can be used for a mixed-use resort development (hotel & villas) with a total built area of up to 37,000 sq m. Makri island has perhaps the most mature planning status among the other private Greek islands and it has been granted special planning/building regulations. Under full development, a 5*+ suites hotel and luxurious private villas could be built.
