Suluada Island boat trip from Antalya is one of the rising stars among excursions. The magical, azure Suluada, an island of diamond-clear waters, fresh sea breeze and pristine Mediterranean nature, will amaze you. You’ve probably seen the Turkish ‘Maldives’ on TikTok videos or TV at least once; now it’s your chance to visit it.
Take a tour on a comfortable boat along the Mediterranean coast to and around Suluada Island. Enjoy swimming stops at white sandy beaches and several lagoons of Turkish Maldives.
As you approach the white sands and crystalline waters of Suluada, you will feel like you are approaching your dream island. Suluada beach is similar to tropical beaches. You can surely see that as you take in the beauty of this solitary island in the Mediterranean Sea.
Suluada is a snorkeler’s paradise as the waters teem with fish and marine life. Caretta Caretta turtles often accompany the boats. It is common to spot dolphins en route. If the marine animals love this island so much, it is easy to see why and you are sure to have the most relaxing day out!
The rocky formation of the island provides a sharp contrast to the stunning natural beaches as they meet the tepid, still waters of the Mediterranean.
There is an abundance of caves dotted along the island’s coast. You will find caves below the surface should you wish to dive deeper. One of the most visited caves runs from the side of one rock to the other, creating an opening ideal for bathing or taking photographs.

The waters at the beaches on the island are incredibly shallow, and non-swimmers can happily paddle to shore and enjoy the beach.
However, if you prefer not to go in the water, you can enjoy a chilled-out boat ride, taking in the most exquisite scenery and, maybe, even do a spot of dolphin watching!
You will find that a day out on the boat to Suluada is a slow and calm excursion.
The waters are generally tranquil, and there is slight rocking on the ship. Most guests don’t experience any problems at all.
However, if you are prone to seasickness and have doubts, you should have your medication with you in the unlikely event that you need them.
The boat leaves from the village of Adrasan, which is just under 2 hours away from Antalya. Suluada is located just off the coast of Adrasan, with a sailing time of around 45 minutes.
