Unraveling the Story of Cleopatra Beach

Legend has it that Cleopatra, the illustrious queen of Egypt, accepted the marriage proposal of Mark Antony, the renowned Roman general. However, she adamantly refused to leave Egypt for their honeymoon, insisting on celebrating their love within her beloved land.

In a grand gesture to demonstrate his unwavering and unparalleled love for Cleopatra, Mark Antony arranged for 60 massive ships to transport special sand from the Red Sea to the shores of this beach. The couple then embarked on a proverbial honeymoon, basking in the beauty of Cleopatra Beach during the 1st century B.C., immortalizing their love for eternity.

The Unique Sands That Symbolize Love

Located on Sedir Island, Cleopatra Beach is a protected gem, treasured by the government for its extraordinary sand. To preserve its uniqueness, the sand grains, each a perfect sphere and smaller than 1 mm in size, are safeguarded against removal.

As you explore this pristine beach, surrounded by majestic olive trees, you’ll feel the essence of Mediterranean culture with every breath you take.
