Demre – Kekova Tour Route

  • Demre Harbour

    Did you know that Demre used to be known as the ancient city of Myra? With this strong connection to ancient history and its location along the scenic Lycian Way, what better place to start your boat trip to Kekova? You can begin at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m., departing from Demre harbour.

  • 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 boat with a glass window at the bottom, giving you a chance to capture unforgettable photos?

  • Simena Castle

    Entrance fee: 4 euro (or free with Museum Pass Turkey or Mediterranean Museum Pass)

    View the enchanting ruins of Simena Castle as we cruise alongside and witness the beauty of the castle and ancient city ruins.

  • Burç Bay

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