The Story of Cleopatra Beach
According to the legend, Cleopatra, the queen of Egypt, accepts the proposal of Mark Antonius, the famous Roman general, however she rejects leaving Egypt and go somewhere else for their honeymoon. To prove his everlasting and unique love to his beloved wife Cleopatra, Antonius brings 60 big ships loaded with the special sand from the Red Sea to this beach.
And happy ending, they spend a proverbial honeymoon in this perfect place and make their love become immortal…
The Unique Sands That Are Full of Love
This beach -which is located within the borders of Sedir Island- is strongly protected by the government because of the uniqueness of its sand in order to prevent any of them being removed from the beach to somewhere else.
The uniqueness comes from each grain’s shape of perfect sphere and being smaller than 1 mm. With its famous olive trees growing all around the island, you will feel the Mediterranean culture in every breath you take.
What Can You Expect from This Journey?
The gem of Sedir Island is about a 30-minute drive from Marmaris. The road runs through the countryside to Gallipoli Bay, and we depart on a traditional Turkish wooden boat. During Marmaris Sedir Island Tour, you can enjoy the sun on the upper deck, or relax in the shade on the lower deck.
On the way to the Island of Cleopatra (also known as Sedir Island), we will visit some magnificent bays and stop for a swim break in its turquoise coastal waters. Sea makes everyone become hungry of course. So, it’s time for a hot barbecue lunch served on the boat with different alternatives upon your wish, we will then approach to the Island of Cleopatra.
Here, you will have about 3 hours of free time in Marmaris Sedir Island Tour to sunbathe, swim, relax and have fun.
Once you are in the island, make sure to visit the other attractions: the ancient Amphitheatre that comes from the Hellenistic and Roman periods, the temple and the city walls used by the Byzantines.
