There are also many  tours are arranged from near bays as  well by travel agencies to this island so if you don`t have a car you can join one of these organized tours.

Island was a home to a Carian site called cedrae meaning cedar however cedar trees  are not seen in the island.  Remnants belonging Temple of Apollo , theater, city walls and towers of the  cedrae city can be seen today.

The popularity of the island today is coming from the golden sands and crystal water. The Cleopatra beach name given  to golden sands is derived from the story narrating the transportation of these golden sands from egypt for the comfort of cleopatra with his lover roman general Antonius in this island.  However golden sands formed by lime stone droplets. This formation can be seen in crete as well.

So wie es der Name auch schon sagt, ein Ort von den Göttern erschaffen. Eines der wundervollsten Flecke in der Türkei.
