The Egyptian Queen Cleopatra was touring in the Mediterranean and met Antonius (224-188 BC). After falling in love with each other Cleopatra and Antonius got married. As a wedding gift Antonius gave Coracesium, former name of Alanya. Cleopatras favorite beach there was named after her.

Even today, Cleopatra Beach is still one of the best and most beautiful.
