Sedir Island, commonly known as Cleopatra Island, is located 18 km north of Marmaris. The ancient city of Cedrae and the island’s Cleopatra Beach, a golden sand beach, are its most famous attractions. The bulk of visitors to Marmaris stop by this beautiful place while they are there.
Cleopatra Island in Sedir is a lovely promenade area. The Camli settlement’s harbour is not far from the island. You may have a wonderful beach and cultural day out here with the ruins of the antiquated city of Cedrae, the golden sands of Cleopatra Beach, the sun, and the sea at your side.
The Camlik Port is the main transportation hub. Three kilometres or so separate the tiny community of Camli from the Camlik Port. It is believed to have been where the Caria region’s first settlement was established. You can discover clear water, clean air, and breathtaking scenery there.
Sedir Island draws hundreds of tourists each year to its stunning shores. The island, which is visible from the air, is currently a well-liked travel destination for both domestic and foreign tourists. It is one of the crucial destinations for excursion boats.
Ships from Egypt are supposed to have brought the island’s golden sands when the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and her lover, the Roman Commander Antonius, met there. The fact that sand multiplies in water, burns when exposed to fire, and appears to move when examined under a microscope is one of its most important properties.
It is said that Cleopatra used to swim at a beach in a little bay in the northwest of the island, which Mark Anthony brought here as a gift for his beloved Cleopatra.
