Short information about Cleopatra island

Cleopatra Island is a unique paradise with its golden sands on Roman ruins, located in the Gulf of Gokova. The area is enveloped in green hills and is presently protected by a conservation law. On the way to the island, there is a 12km road through pinewoods and farmland to the shores of a small bay where you will be met by Turkish wooden fishing boats that provide the 20-minute boat ride to Akyaka harbour where we continue our trip to the island. You will spend dreamy hours swimming in crystal clear turquoise water or take a walk inland to discover the small Roman amphitheater, towers and a church. People say that the soft white sand was brought from Egypt for Anthony and Cleopatra's honeymoon pleasures. This special carbon based sand is very precious and must be conserved so please shake out your pockets and shoes before leaving the beautiful beach.
