Cleopatra Island Boat Trip is an amazing 8-hour travel venture from Marmaris into the serene and most beautiful of the places you will ever get to visit on earth. The tour begins with a 20-minutes drive through the colorful countryside to Çamlı, a village 17 Km from Marmaris. From here we take the two-decked special Turkish boat to sail across the Gökova Gulf, take 2 impressive swim breaks in between, enjoy a luscious BBQ lunch and finally let you take a 2-hour long free-time to explore and enjoy at the Cleopatra Beach. While heading back to Marmaris, we again stop for a 40-minutes swim break at the impressive Lighthouse Island.
Cleopatra island boat trip from Marmaris
The Aegean Sea is well-known for its crystal clear waters and strikingly serene beaches. As our boat moves from Çamlı, we take swim breaks at two different places; one at Ince Kum bay and the other at the Laciver Koy. These places are excellent locations to enjoy swimming and snorkelling. From here we sail further to the Cleopatra Island where a luscious BBQ lunch awaits us. After the lunch break, it is the time to explore the famous island of Cleopatra.
Cleopatra Island Boat Trip offers you 2-hour long free-time opportunity to walk on the amazing sandy beach, swim and snorkel on the island of Cleopatra. The amphitheatre and the fortifications of the ancient city site of Cedrea along with the breathtaking backdrop of the mighty mountains and the bright azure waters of the bay are an added attraction.
The legend of the Cleopatra Island
The Cleopatra Island is known for its pale pink sands that squeak as you walk over them. This legendary island is believed to be once a secret meeting place to Queen Cleopatra and Mark Antony. Impressed by the beautiful setting and serenity of the island, Queen Cleopatra used to visit this place again and again. Mark Antony, in order to please his lover, made this island even more impressive by importing special sands from the northern Africa.
The sands you’ll find here now are found nowhere else in the world. This is a specially protected natural park and no one is allowed to disturb or take the sand away from here. As one walks bare-footed on this amazing beach, the sand squeaks below your feet. One feels as if he is walking on clouds! It is an amazing feeling, the words can’t depict.
