Tour Route

  • Antalya to Demre

    You’ve picked a good choice staying in Antalya, with its old town, bustling centre and stunning coastline. But let’s make your holiday even more exceptional! An exclusive tour of Demre, Myra and Kekova starts at 7 am with a private transfer service from your hotel in Antalya. Our comfortable vehicle will bring you to Demre.

    Breakfast is served at Botanix Cafe and Bistro before heading to the harbour.

  • Demre Harbour

    After breakfast, we’ll head to Demre harbour where the boat awaits you for the start of your trip to Kekova. Once the anchor is raised, away we go!

  • Kekova Island and Sunken City

    Discover the fascinating secrets of Kekova’s history on this unique adventure around the Sunken City. The ancient city of Dolchiste was flooded due to an earthquake in the 2nd century, and its resulting underwater ruins never fail to leave an impression. Since this is a protected area, swimming is not permitted here, so what better way to explore the site than by cruising alongside the ruins on our glass-bottom boat, giving you the chance to capture unforgettable photos.

  • Simena Castle

    Our boat will drop anchor in Kaleköy port (ancient Simena) for one hour, giving you time to visit this small authentic village that’s home to castle ruins and a necropolis. A hike up the hillside will give you magnificent views of the Kekova region. If you’d prefer to admire Simena Castle from down below, you can use your remaining time to take another dip in the gorgeous blue waters.

  • Esmeralda Bay

    Time for a lunch and swim break at beautiful Esmeralda Bay where you can enjoy peace and tranquility during this fun journey.

  • Burç Bay

    Enjoy the peaceful ambiance of this area during a swim break in Burç Bay, where the water feels cooler due to cold underwater natural springs!

  • Gökkaya Bay

    We’ll stop to swim in Gökkaya Bay, where you can experience the natural beauty of the area and opt to participate in one of the various exciting water sports on offer.

  • Pirates Cave

    Discover this intriguing naturally-formed cave, which is renowned for its large size and curved entrance.

  • Karemlik Bay

    3 out of the 7 known sea turtle species can be found in the Mediterranean Sea. At Karemlik Bay, you’ll have the chance to look for these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.

  • Demre Harbour

    After your fascinating trip on the water, our boat will drop anchor in Demre port, where your tour continues with a visit to a nearby museum.

  • Museum of Lycian Civilizations

    Duration: 30 minutes
    Entrance fee: 10TL (or free with Museum Pass Turkey or Mediterranean Museum Pass)

    From the visitor reception area, you will find walking paths leading you past the Andriake ruins. The last point on the path is a 2nd-century ancient granary, which has been converted into the Museum of Lycian Civilizations. Here you will find artefacts from nearby Lycian cities which have survived the years, and tell you more about the ancient history of the region.

  • St. Nicholas Church

    Duration: 30 minutes
    Entrance fee: 55 TL (or free with Museum Pass Turkey or Mediterranean Museum Pass)

    Our tour continues with the Santa Claus Museum in Demre town centre. Originally built in 520 A.D., this interesting archeological building started its operation as a church, built in memory of St. Nicholas of Myra, a 4th-century patron saint. Here you can explore the remains of this former church, taking yourself back in time to when the ancient city of Myra still existed.

  • The Ancient City of Myra

    Duration: Up to 1 hour
    Entrance fee: 45 TL (or free with Museum Pass Turkey or Mediterranean Museum Pass)

    Your chance to discover Demre’s most famous archeological site! A true step back in history as you observe some of Myra’s most significant ancient ruins dating as far back as the 5th century B.C. There is plenty of time to explore the two highlights of this stop: a Roman-style theatre (the largest in Lycia!) and eerie rock-cut tombs carved into the cliffs above.

    As the day draws to an end, we will finish the tour by dropping you back off in Antalya, where you can continue your holiday in Turkey, and treasure the moments you shared on this day.
