Departure Time

9:00 AM
Your Cleopatra Island adventure begins with an expedient pickup at your central Marmaris hotel. Strap into an air-conditioned vehicle that will shuttle you to the bay where your boat promptly departs. Brace yourself for a journey to Cleopatra Island, where it is said the Egyptian queen bathed with Mark Anthony in the 2nd century BC. The sands on the island are a kind of smooth small shells typically only found at the Red Sea. Rumore has it Mark Anthony had them sent to this island for Cleopatra’s pleasure.

Onboard the cruise, kick back and soak up the views of the turquoise gulf Gulf of Gökova. En route to the island, enjoy two pit stops where you can take a dip into the tranquil Aegean waters. Fuel up with lunch on the sunny deck (drinks at own expense). See the Itinerary for a sample menu. 

Then, dock at Cleopatra Island, where you can spend your 3.5 hours however you like. Swim or snorkel in the cerulean waters, stroll the olive orchards, lounge on the warm sands, and explore the nearby Roman ruins. A beach bungalow serves light provisions and refreshments (own expense) as well as  sunbeds. 

After your 3.5 hours has passed, relax on the boat ride back to Marmaris, with one more swim stop on the way back. Your tour concludes with a convenient drop-off at your central Marmaris hotel.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Sedir Island
Start your trip with a pickup from your centrally located Marmaris hotel. Settle into your air-conditioned vehicle and travel to a nearby bay where your cruise boat is waiting. Step aboard your comfortable boat and admire the views as you leave land behind and cut over the blue-green waters of the Gulf of Gökova to Cleopatra Island. One of a trio, this famous islet (also known as Sedir Island) is home to a beach where, according to legend, Egypt’s pharaoh queen, Cleopatra, bathed with her lover Mark Anthony, sometime in the 2nd century BC. The story goes that Anthony ordered the sands from Egypt as a gift to his mistress — a tale perhaps borne out by the present-day sand. Made up of tiny, smooth seashells, it’s of a type that typically only hails from the Red Sea. Before arriving, enjoy two stops to swim or snorkel in the turquoise Aegean, and savor a delicious lunch on deck, with drinks available to purchase on board. Please see the Itinerary for a sample menu. Soon afterward, moor at the island and walk through olive groves to the fabled beach. Soak up the beauty before you and spend the next 3.5 hours or so doing exactly as you wish. Swim and snorkel in the crystalline waters, polish your tan, or stroll to the Roman ruins that lie nearby. If you wish, refuel with refreshments (own expense) at the beach cafe and hire a sunbed (own expense). Later, cruise back to Marmaris with a further swim stop on route. Your trip ends with a hotel drop-off in the early evening. -------------------- ITINERARY -------------------- Sample Menu: Main course: • Grilled chicken served with salad and rice or pastaDessert: • Fresh fruit
