Live like Queen Cleopatra for a while! In Bodrum, the Gulf of Gokova, you can visit this very special spot which is also known as Sedir Island, on your gulet cruise holiday. The sands here are reputed to have been bought from the deserts of N Africa and transported from Egypt by Mark Anthony for the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra. This makes it one of Turkey’s most breathtaking golden beaches , and for history buffs there is the added attraction of many ruins scattered here, including city walls, a 1500 capacity amphitheatre and domed ancient buildings. Coupled with crystal clear azure coloured waters, and not an asp in sight!
