From Antalya it is a 3 hour drive, so you will have a long day, no matter. Kekova Bay is beautiful, but the "glass bottom boat" is a bit of a joke : a couple of dirty panels that get uncovered for a few minutes...More

Only way to see it is from daily boat trip from Kas or Kalkan. Everything depends on the commentary by the guide and his commend of goodEnglish to explain the Lycian historical civilisation-background.

Interesting but not much to see unless a guide explains it all. Only available to see from the boat trip.

It is an old Roman naval base which has been destroyed by earthquakes and partially sunken. Nothing much to see but a good boat ride . If you have visited Rome and Athens then nothing much of interest !!

We had acces by going on a boat trip and it was very nice. Don't expect to see to much, but you get an impression of the sunken ruins which is nice.

Had a fabulous day visiting the sunken city. Beautiful weather, lovely boat, clear sea so you can see everything. Lovely little blue fish darting around the sea. The views are amazing along the way too.

We have booked the kayak trip to paddle over this archeological place. In Kas, we were lucky with Xanthos Travel, which was very professional and friendly from the beginning to the end. Seeing this sunken city from the kayak... it was a perfect experience. Short...More

Many centuries ago there were several earthquakes, each of which sank the island of Kekova a little more. All the boat tours go there. However I would recommend a tour company that will explain the history of the region and not just float by. We...More
