Icmeler Cleopatra Tour
A remnant page from the books of history, the stories of Cleopatra beach on Sedir Island will definitely take you back in time. These are the sands that legends are made of – for it is said that here at Cleopatra beach, the Egyptian queen used to swim with her amour, Marcus Anthony. It is said that the golden sands of Cleopatra beach are only found in Africa and were therefore brought over from the queen’s homeland deserts in the 1st century BC by Marcus to please his queen. These are the sands where Cleopatra and Marcus used to swim and apparently even spent their honeymoon. Book an Icmeler Cleopatra tour and be a part of this timeless history.
Located on the beautiful Cedir Island, the beach is well enclosed with proper showers to ensure that you take away only your fabulous memories, not any grain of sand from these timeless beaches. Once you have taken a fanciful dip in these pristine turquoise waters (and joined the ranks of Cleopatra!) explore this wondrous Mediterranean Island and feel its charming vibes enthrall you. There are a few ruins in the eastern part of the island from Roman times. There is a theatre as well as an ancient Agora or marketplace in these ruins which are a worthy exploration on a balmy sunny afternoon.
Cedir Island and Cleopatra Beach is about a 45 minute drive north from Icmeler. We organise regular tours from Icmeler and will arrange your comfortable transportation through the bucolic countryside to Gallipoli Bay. There your dream journey will continue on a traditional Turkish wooden boat floating through the sparkling waters and making some breathtaking pit stops on the way to Sedir Island. We will stop at some breathtaking alcoves, inlets and bays and let you swim in these turquoise waters and be a part of the magic. Take a dip in these waters and then warm yourself in the sun on the upper deck of your boat while being enthralled with the views of the coast as we calmly move on to Sedir Island. And if you feel hungry, there is a piping hot barbecue lunch to be served on the boat with a number of alternatives.
Once on the island, the Cleopatra tour from Icmeler will provide you 3 hours of time to swim in the legendary waters or explore this ancient gem in the Mediterranean. And yes, do not forget to check the ancient remnants from Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine times. Then after the excitement of the day, enjoy the return journey on the sunset waters to reflect on the day and wonder how the beauty of nature has remained unchanged since ancient times.
