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.

Sedir Island (cleopatra): 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.
