​​​DEMRE & ST NICOLAS & THE SUNKEN CITY OF KEKOVA 
 
Highlights:
Our exciting day starts with 2 hours of driving to Finike from Antalya where we will have a short tea break before continuing to Demre. 
We will board our boats at Demre and sail towards Ucagiz where we can see the ancient city of Simena and the Kekova Sunken City and also have a chance to swim.
Kekova is an island paradise meaning “ Home of the sun”. It is also the name for the whole area of picturesque islands, numerous bays, and ancient cities. These bays provide natural harbors in all seasons and here too, nature is united by history creating a harmony rarely seen. Along the northern shore of Kekova Island (Apollonia), structural movements of the land over many centuries have caused some of the houses to be totally submerged, while remains of others are scattered along the shore. A birds-eye view of the whole scenic of bays, inlets islands, and yachts sailing peacefully on the smooth water is seen from the Kale Castle (Simena).
Lunch will be taken at Demre or Ucagiz, the ancient city of Myra, which is especially known for Noel Baba (Saint Nicholas), who was the Bishop of this Mediterranean city during the 4th century and who died here in 325.
Every year on December 6, the Saint Clause commemoration ceremony is held, attracting many tourists, who spend their Christmas holidays on the sunny coast of ancient Lycia.  There, you can also see the rock tombs that are built high up in the rock face and have the appearance of little houses.
