Ancient city of Simena on the island of Kekova was flooded after an earthquake in 5AD - Boat trips take you past the runs and through Kekova sound where there is ample snorkelling in the spectacularly clear azure waters - see our review for Myra Travel Boat Tours for a review of the boat that took us - I'd advise...

The rules are strictly no swimming, no stopping here, so it's a drive-by of the sunken city, but it's so amazing to look at!

I loved the boat trip there as the sea is turquise and they usually stop for people to have a swim or lunch break, where the captain and his wife will cook a meal for you. I did not like the final destination very much as i found the people sad and unfriendly. But that might only have been my... More

This wonderful place has to be seen to be believed. Crystal clear water to swim in, history and ancient ruins and sensational places to eat. The view from the ramparts of the 13th century castle overlooking the tiny village of Kalekoy is breathtaking. There are hidden coves to bathe in peace and tranquillity all around. Do not miss this magical... More

This was our first trip out on a boat and I really don’t know why we waited so long. We booked the trip from one of several places in Kalkan that organises these trips, £22, though we did see it advertised cheaper. We were collected from our hotel by a very luxurious minibus and taken over to join the boat.... More

So beautiful and serene. Going through on a boat was fantastic. Highly recommend an overnight trip, to leisurely explore. The Sunken City is fascinating! And although that you can't swim in most of it, there is still an old port that you can swim in, which is protected from the wind quite well. Would highly recommend.

We loved Kekova. We rented a boat in town and crossed out to Kalekoy to see the Castle and tombs then over to Kekova to see the sunken city, really spectacular. The boat had windows in the bottom so you could see the walls and even the amphoras and plates on the seafloor below. Then a dip in the ocean... More

Absolutely lovely experience, a day on a boat drifting along the coast line and indulging in some history and archaeology. The history of the area is inspiring, a chance to wonder at the architecture of these historic periods and the lives that were lived in such remote places. Visiting Simena gave one a glimpse at the realities of life, with... More
