The Characteristic of Cleopatra Island is, it is a small island beach made of silky smooth white sand all over. This sand makes this island so special.
It is part of an amazing islands group very close to Marmaris.
Technically, this sandy beach is made up of very tiny sand-like empty seashells and took millions of years to form this beach. So shiny and tiny. The beach is under conservation by the government, because it takes such a long time reproduce the sand. BEWARE that you can not take any sand with you when you leave the beach. You are also NOT allowed to take towels on to the beach since the sand sticks on to the towel.

The story goes like this: Cleopatra island was the meeting place for Queen Cleopatra and and Mark Anthony, her lover. Cleopatra wanted this little secluded island to be her secret paradise. It is believed that Mark Anthony had shiploads of white sand brought from Egypt for their secret island as present and surprise for Cleopatra.
