    Sedir Island
    Stop: 6 hours -
    Start your trip with a pickup from your centrally located Marmaris hotel. Settle into your air-conditioned vehicle and travel to a nearby bay where your cruise boat is waiting. Step aboard your comfortable boat and admire the views as you leave land behind and cut over the blue-green waters of the Gulf of Gökova to Cleopatra Island. One of a trio, this famous islet (also known as Sedir Island) is home to a beach where, according to legend, Egypt’s pharaoh queen, Cleopatra, bathed with her lover Mark Anthony, sometime in the 2nd century BC. The story goes that Anthony ordered the sands from Egypt as a gift to his mistress — a tale perhaps borne out by the present-day sand. Made up of tiny, smooth seashells, it’s of a type that typically only hails from the Red Sea. Before arriving, enjoy two stops to swim or snorkel in the turquoise Aegean, and savor a delicious lunch on deck, with drinks available to purchase on board. Please see the Itinerary for a sample menu. Soon afterward, moor at the island and walk through olive groves to the fabled beach. Soak up the beauty before you and spend the next 3.5 hours or so doing exactly as you wish. Swim and snorkel in the crystalline waters, polish your tan, or stroll to the Roman ruins that lie nearby. If you wish, refuel with refreshments (own expense) at the beach cafe and hire a sunbed (own expense). Later, cruise back to Marmaris with a further swim stop on route. Your trip ends with a hotel drop-off in the early evening. -------------------- ITINERARY -------------------- Sample Menu: Main course: • Grilled chicken served with salad and rice or pastaDessert: • Fresh fruit

You can't walk on the sand, The food that was included was horrible, waste of money, not suitable for kids with SEN needs, how many time do you really have to swim in the sea!!

A great day out hosted by Diana Travel Marmaris. Started with a surprise and exciting off-road 4x4 open-top Jeep experience through the hills at the back of Marmaris. Two fantastic picture stops - truly breathtaking - and driving along roads and through villages you would never

Horrible hilly 30 min bus ride to boat, do not take children if they get travel sick. Big pirate ship lovely and relaxing ride with stops to swim (take snorkeling gear). Beach small but sea lovely to swim in with sand under your feet. Standard lunch chicken, pasts, salad.
