We will board to 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 harbours in all seasonal and here too, nature is united by history creating a harmony rarely seen. Along the northern shore of Kekova Island (Apollona), 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 are seen from the Kale Castle (Simena).
