The uninhabited island is situated in the westernmost end of Gulf of Antalya about 7 kilometres to the Cape Gelidonya.
Suluada Island has been compared to the Maldives. Tourists enjoy turquoise clear water and white sands. The color of the water is mesmerizing, the sand on the shore is exquisite. The island has two beaches, 50 meters and 120 meters.
One of the main features of Suluada Island is its natural reef. Dolphins and Mediterranean seals are the most frequent visitors to the island, which has a rich fish diversity.
