This region, located between the Kas and Demre districts of Antalya, is one the most important touristic areas of Turkey. Kekova is the generic name of region covering Ucagiz village, Simena (Kalekoy), Batıksehir, Akvaryum bay and Tersane bay. The area is steeped in history and remnants of Lycia, Rome, and Byzantine times can all be seen. But what really draws people to the region is to glimpse the sunken city when the area was destroyed by an earthquake in 2nd Century AD.
At 09:30, we will gather at the meeting point and then we will go to our private boat reserved for you. After morning coffee, we will depart at 09:45 o’clock, and start our blue cruise through the Mediterranean Sea’s turquoise waters.
After 45 minutes of cruising, our first destination is İnönü bay. We stay here for 30 minutes. Here you can discover the secret beach and cave and swim in the crystal clear waters.
Our next destination is Akvaryum bay which is the entrance region of Kekova Island. We stay here for 45 minutes, after which we will serve delicious home made food from our Mediterranean kitchen.
After a delicious meal, we will cruise slowly over the Sunken City area. Here you can see the remains of the ruins destroyed in an earthquake in the 2nd Century AD. Due to it’s historical significance, swimming is forbidden in this region.
Leaving the Sunken city behind, our next destination is Simena.We will stop here for around one hour. During our break you can disembark from the boat and visit the fort walls built by the Knights of Rhodes as well as tombs from the Lycian and Byzantium periods. The handmade ice-cream at Simena is also delicious.
After leaving Simena, we sail through the fishing village of Ucagiz . Here you can appreciate breathtaking views of the whole area.
Our final destination is Yağlıca bay where we stop for 45 minutes. The bay is refreshing cool due to it’s canyon structure and the mountain spring water. Before we begin our journey home we will serve tea and coffee, cake and fruit.
