    Just a spectacular beach and island that can’t be easily reached, we booked the boat cruise online. Expect a lot of people, but colours are mesmerising and the water is crystal clear. Great place to visit.


    Fabulous tour for swimming & great beach. We stayed on the beach, it was so peaceful. Take some water and snack in your beach bag, it is expensive on the island. We booked our tour from Mares Travel online and saved many pounds!!!


    We booked the boat trip to Cleopatra’s island, and immediately received my ticket via email will all the details. Semih was who I dealt with, excellent communication. We had a beautiful trip, the boat ride and views were great. Once we arrived to the island of Cleopatra, we got to the beach area. We had 2 hour to just swim, explore, chill and relax, then we had our lunch on the boat. It was the tastiest meal I’ve had in ages! The meat was cooked so well, the salad was lovely and so was the rice, I honestly would do the boat trip just for the food. It’s really worth every penny, the staff were great. I’d definitely recommend it.


    Cleopatra beach is one of the most beautiful place that I had the privilege to swim in. Fantastic beach and sands here. The place must be the first one on your visit list. There are also historical sites to visit, follow the path to the ruins around the beach; church, basilica, theater, old walls, and the temple of Apollo. All of the ruins are from the Hellenistic and Byzantine periods.


    We were picked from our hotel in Marmaris at 9 am and our shuttle bus took us to Camli Village (about 20 minutes away) to catch our boat to Sedir Island. It was smooth sail to the island (the island is a museum entrance fee to the island is 20 tl but our trip also includes the entrance fee so we didn’t pay any extra). There is literally no buildings on the island. The island was outstanding! Beautiful protected beach in a small bay with crystal clear and blue water. It was a great trip with beautiful sea, beach, ruins, and no hotels !

    Absolutely beautiful. Had a fantastic day. Swam in lovely coves and stopped off at a lovely market in Turunc on the way. Have taken some wonderful photographs along the way. A must do boat trip!


    Cleopatra Island among the beautiful Gokova Bay is an excellent place to visit. The stunning scenery gives you a delightful feeling and you’ll love to swim and play among fantastic coves around here. The island has pristine, white sandy beach with fine sand particles as soft as flowers! You’ll feel as if you are walking on clouds while you walk on this beach.
