Is there anything in the world someone can’t achieve when he/she is in love… When it comes to love, it would be such a shame not to quote from William Shakespeare. “My heart is ever at your service” is written by him in the Timon of Athens. With this trip to the Cleopatra Beach (Cleopatra Tour), we kindly invite you to take a walk on the dusty pages of history and testify one of the magical love stories between Cleopatra and Mark Antonius who is believed to have had a legendary love and also spent their honeymoon at that beach at the 1st Century B.C. 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…
Cleopatra 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 1mm. With its famous olive trees growing all around the island, you will feel the Mediterranean culture in every breath you take.
Cleopatra Beach 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 the trip, 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 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.
You must bring:
Sunglasses and accessories (sun lotion, hat, etc.)
