4.4
#6 of 10 in Parks in Marmaris
Sedir Island, also known as Cleopatra Island, is a small island in the Gulf of Gökova of southwestern Aegean Sea off the coast of Ula, part of Muğla Province of Turkey. It is famous for its beach made from seashells. It is said that this organic sand was brought by ships from the Red Sea especially for Cleopatra. Each grain of sand is a perfect sphere, for this reason the beach is heavily protected by the government to prevent any sand being removed from the beach. According to legend, Anthony and Cleopatra swam here and the sands were brought by ships from North Africa. It has been said that this type of sand can only be found in Egypt.

  • Cedar Island, also known as Cleopatra Island Sea of Turkey's best beach and indisputable. The famous beach sand has been taken under protection by the Ministry of culture and tourism, and flipped around the sand. Definitely not allowed to exit onto the sand. I better have a towel on the sand, I remember this used to be güneşlendiğimi. $20 or a Museum card entry entry to the island. Free use of sun loungers on the island. Lounge chairs under palm trees. Marmaris with your private car to go to the island skin about half an hour to go from there by boat to the island from the village of a journey you can Anderson. If you do not have a private car from Marmaris Otogar Anderson leaves the van to the village. In this way, you can go by boat to the island or Anderson. My advice is to Marmaris in round one of the company's approximately $50 per person you deal with. Tour companies are taking and take you up to the village of Hotelinizden Camli with various kinds of tour boat bays here visiting and giving the island a swimming break. Close to 3 hours break on the island. Put the other fabulous both around you can swim in. Definitely go see:)

Where to stay in Marmaris

Look no further than the seaside town of Marmaris for an oceanfront getaway. Along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea sits a strip of busy hotels that appeal to the masses. Here you'll find all-inclusive hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts right next to shopping, dining, and nightlife venues. In this area, the better accommodation deals tend to restrict outside food and beverages, which can drive up your tab with restaurant bills and à la carte purchases. Farther from the coast in the Armutalan area, you'll find more laid-back accommodations, including moderately priced hotels. The noise restrictions in place ensure a more peaceful stay compared to the city center. Farther south along the coast, the Içmeler area offers the best of both worlds--while still oceanfront, the resorts here are quiet, thanks to their distance from the bustling city. Keep in mind that Içmeler is little over an hour's walk from the city, or a short water taxi ride.
