Shared Kekova and Sunken City Tour From Kas Harbor with Lunch

139 reviews
The Sunken City of Kekova is one of Turkey’s lesser-visited historic highlights, a second-century port town that collapsed into the sea after an earthquake. Visit the city while it’s still a secret on this day-long boat trip from the Kaş Harbour. Spend the morning snorkelling in the sky-blue waters at Akvaryum Bay and Tersane Bay before visiting the sunken city in the afternoon.

Nearly 4000 years old,this place can only be seen from the sea as alot of this place has sunk into the sea.It is a site of ruins and is better with a guide explaining the history and what each ruin was.The history of this place is very interesting as were the ruins left behind.

We visited Aperlai as part of a kayaking trip booked through Xanthos Travel in Kaş. After kayaking through Kekova Sound over the Sunken City we had lunch at Polemos Bay from where we walked for 20 minutes or so along the Lycian Way to reach Aperlai. We swam among the ruins and I would advise taking aqua shoes with you in order to get into the water easily - it can be extremely slippery and some rocks are sharp underfoot. On a still day visibility of the ruins below would be good however, on the day we went it was a bit windy and without a snorkel, we didn't see a great deal. The ruins on the shore are extremely picturesque though and well worth capturing on your camera.

Great boat tour! We saw underwater city and a lot of tombs on the slopes of hills. This is something worth spending your time (and money). Unfortunately, our guide spoke mainly in Russian (just 4 of us were speaking English so he didn't bother). I understand Russian a bit so I know they had much more info from him. P.s. I am glad I'm art historian so I didn't need him, but feel sorry for others in his past and future groups speaking nothing but English.

we docked on the opposite cove from APerlai and did the 30 minute walk on the Lycian way to the ancient city. It's hot and dusty, but flat and an easy and worthwhile hike to the hills filled with tombs
