Swim in the Aegean Sea, by the island that used to belong to Cleopatra. Touch the sand, strictly guarded by the locals, which is forbidden to be taken out.
On the beach, in the quiet bay of the island Sedir, Cleopatra used to sunbathe itself. According to legend, Marcus Aurelius, for her convenience, lined the beach with special sand from Tunisia - smooth and hollow inside.
