The beaches on Suluada are well worth the glorious boat ride and as you reach the shores you will be treated to views like no other in this part of Turkey. Suluada in English means ‘watery island’ and whilst this may be stating the obvious (after all, all islands are surrounded by water) it is so named because of the natural springs on the Island that are a source of fresh water. Surprisingly the Island itself is rocky but this provides a dramatic backdrop to the snowy white beaches and the dazzling blue of the sea.
On a day out to Suluada you will be able to experience the feel of the stunning white sands between your toes and enjoy paddling or swimming in the transparent turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea. It is a day out that will leave you feeling as though you have visited a tropical island with waters aplenty with interesting marine life that are ideal for snorkelling.
From the boat you can experience all of the beauty of the Island as you approach and can easily disembark to explore the beaches once you arrive. This really is the ultimate boat trip and not like any other on offer for relaxing in the most idyllic settings!
