If you like boats, mystery and history, then a day-long combined boat/bus trip to Kekova is just the thing for you. Many bays and tiny islands line the green coastline that leads to Kekova. From the boat you can explore the Sunken City Apollonia, destroyed in an earthquake in fourth century BC. Marvel at the Lycian tombs carved into the mountain. On land visit the St. Nicholas Church (Father Christmas) and Kaleköy castle.

We really enjoy the boat tour, something that sounded very touristy at first buy ended up being the best thing in Kekova. Water is crystal clear. You get to see the sunken city, Lycean settlements and you stop at some lovely spots for swimming breaks. Food was good, staff was friendly. Would definitely recommend.

We absolutely adored our visit to Kekova in great part because of the boat tour. The ride was smooth, the sun was hot, the water was cool, clear and blue and the food was awesome! For the price, this is a steel! You get to visit all the surrounding islands and sites for a very affordable price. Also, if you... More

The water was unbelievably clear and the swimming was a delight. We got a whole day tour, with lunch on board and hours of... More

If you are travelling around the Mediterranean sea and Antalya, you should definitely take one these boat trips starting from Demre which is around 2,5 hour from Antalya city. But try to choose a boat with the glass bottom so that you can see the bottom od the sea while cruising. If you are around 10-15, I advise you to... More

The sea was a little rough in parts but we were lucky to visit this Lycian settlement. It's known locally as the town below the sea, which it is in part as we went on the trip by boat & they had 2 areas of the boat with glass bottom area's for you to see below. The other part of... More
