Island Beach Must See
Legend has it that Cleopatra Island was a secret meeting place for Egyptian queen Cleopatra and her lover. The island is famous for its small beach covered with silky smooth white sand, said to have been brought here from Egypt by Mark Anthony as a gift for Cleopatra. Since the sand is made from tiny empty seashells and took millions of years to form, the beach is a conservation site. Sunbathe and swim along the rocky seashore. Covered with pine trees, the island features ancient ruins such as an amphitheater, a temple, and Byzantine city walls. Take note that towels are not allowed on the beach, and you are not permitted to leave the beach with any sand. To visit Cleopatra Island on your trip to Ula, use our Ula planning website .

    With my wife before we were married we come from and a special place for us. I think it's a corner of paradise in the world. Must-see. Chaise lounges for free but not quite reduced. It could have been a little more manicured.
