As a gift for the love of each of these sands brought in the same size. Other features of this particular sand, which is known to exist only in two parts of the Earth, are also burning in the fire, spontaneously in the water, and moving when examined under the magnifying glass.

Guided tours of Gokova Bay and the island of Cleopatra, Just 30 kilometers from Marmaris in the beautiful Gokova Bay is the legendary ancient city of Kedrai, better known in our time as Cleopatra’s Island. Legend has it that the island of Cleopatra was presented by her second lover – the great Roman commander and politician
During their Anatolian honeymoon trip to the cities and islands of the Mediterranean Sea. Their journey began in the city of Antakia and lasted 6 months, ending in Ephesus. It is known that during this voyage the commander gave the queen not only islands, but also entire cities, which the Senate in Rome did not like very much.
By order of the legendary commander, especially for Cleopatra, from Egypt brought several galleys of unique white sand, which has survived to this day and is found only in Africa. The grains of sand resemble small white pearls and, like pearls, are of organic origin. On the beach you can see special barriers, and you can get on it only from the sea. In winter, sand on the island is collected in special barrels so that waves and current do not wash it off
In addition to the unique sand and fabulously beautiful beach, the island of Cleopatra is also interesting by the ruins of the ancient Carian city of Kedrai. A small theater, the Apollo Temple and the fortress walls of the island are well preserved to our times. During the Roman Empire, Lebanese cedar was supplied from this region for the construction of ships, from where the name of the island of Kedrai or the modern Turkish island of Sedir comes from. The island of Cleopatra, indeed, can be called a “royal gift.”
