  Cleopatra's Bath House
by Weissdorn

Actually the name of this bay is Kotin Bay, but everybody just calls it Cleopatra's Bay, because of the ruins of Cleopatra's Bath House in the Bay. It's in the middle of a Turkish National Park, so there are no roads going out of if, and is located at the most Southeastern corner of the Fethiye Golf. Ther are no hotels, no buildings, just a dock with a couple of boats tied up to it. One of the boats is a restaurant, run by Cem.
For 10 ? Cem's wife will fix you a meal with chicken, lamb or fresh fish, with appetizers, salad and the works. Their supply of wine and bottled beer never seems to be exhausted either. For breakfast they will bake you fresh bread on their home-made oven built on a small tender.
Cleopatra's Bath House is submerged in water, as the years take their toll, and if you like you can snorkel around the bath house, or sit on the dock and dream of how Mark Anthony once seduced her here.
