Shared Sunken City of Kekova Boat Tour including lunch
Shared Sunken City of Kekova Boat Trip including lunch.
One of the most exciting boat trips is to visit the sunken city of Kekova. A terrible earthquake in the 2nd century AD caused a downward shift of land and submerged the ancient houses. You will travel by our vehicle to Ucagiz Village and then take a boat to Kekova area where you will witness the remains of the ancient city.
The ancient Lycian sunken city of Simena is often referred to as Kekova-Simena. The city is a charming mix of ancient, medieval and modern history making it interesting as well as beautiful.
The day begins with a drive to Üçağız village from our office in Kas center to board the boat which will then stop for a swim at Aquarium bay.
