This stopped at several places to swim but our favourite was the so called aquarium which had the bluest water and white sand bottom.

After going through the tour shops in Kas and been quoted ridiculous prices we ended up hiring a car for the day for TL 70. It was very easy and a great way to do the day at our own speed. We arrived at the sunken city and soon had done a deal with 'our captain' for a two hour... More

We loved a day trip around Kekova Sound, visiting the Sunken City, Simina and seeing the fantastic sea turtles. The trip was well paced and the food was delicious.

A boat trip to Kekova is a pleasant way to spend the day. There are a number of stops for swimming and snorkelling and some excellent views from the old castle ruins at Simena.

The lunch was really good. We saw the sunken ancient city at Kekova Island, and during the 45 minute stop at Simena/Kalekoy we went... More
