See the unique, round beach sands on Sedir Island that legend says were brought from the Red Sea especially for Cleopatra on this scenic day trip. Admire the beautiful scenery of the Gulf of Gökova, go for a swim, and explore the island's ancient ruins.

The journey takes you directly from your hotel and out to Incekum Bay, where you can go for a swim and stop for lunch before you arrive at Sedir Island. Here, you can relax in the bay at Sedre, one of the most extraordinary in the world, and venture into the waters where Antony and Cleopatra themselves are thought to have swam 2,000 years ago.

Covered by olive groves and brush, the island is best known for the billions of fossils that make up the beach, which scientists say would have required millions of years to form here naturally. This, and the belief that Cleopatra came here when she visited Mark Anthony at Tarsus, has led to the belief that she was so enamoured of the area that Anthony had the sands brought from North Africa by ship.

After a visit to Dolphin Bay and some more time to swim in the incredible waters, return to your boat for the cruise back to Marmaris.
