Cleopatra was an extremely strong queen who could afford luxury that others could only dream of. For example, she was dissatisfied with the beaches of Sedir Island in Turkey during her trip. So her boyfriend, Mark Antony, had the white sand she loved sent all the way from Egypt so she might enjoy it on other shores. Because of this, Sedir is today known as Cleopatra's Island.
