Excursions > Marmaris


The Sedir Island is made up three islands; Palace Island (Cleopatra Island) Central Island and Small Island. Its ancient name was Kedrai. The bay at Sedre is one of the most extraordinary in the world. They look like just sand. Scientists say that it requires millions of years for this fossils to come into existence. The Island is covered by olive grove sand brush. It is widely believed that Cleopatra and Mark Anthony bathed here after the Egyptian Queen visited her Roman lover at Tarsus. They are supposed to have sailed here and landed at Cedrae Island. Cleopatra was so admired of the area that Mark Anthony had the sand from North Africa transported here by ship.
