Hamam Bay (Cleopatra Bath)
Cleopatra Bath & Hamam bay (hamam koyu), which is an ancient bath remaining from the Roman period, is situated in a setting that is naturally decorated with pine trees and blue sea. It is possible to see all charming tones of blue colour as you move from deep to shallow waters around the bay.
This bay is famous Cleopatra Bath, a historical bath built during the Roman military campaigns. It is believed that the building was built upon the request of Cleopatra, after whom the bath is named.
The reason behind the selection of this bay to build such a bath is quite rational. Reoprtedly there was a very hot thermal spring coming out of the rocks then and it was very rich in calcium and various minerals.
