Know More about this tour

Your tour sets out in the early morning from Belek, starting with a drive through the Kemer resort hotel and a breakfast stop (own expense) at a restaurant with a panoramic view of Kumluca. From here the road to Kekova Harbor — coined the Turquoise Coast — is picturesque, as it is bordered on one side by the Mediterranean Sea and on the other side by small towns set against the Taurus Mountains of southern Turkey.

On arrival in Kekova, embark on a 1-hour boat trip to discover the ruins of the sunken city. The glass-bottom boat sails slowly so you can clearly see the remains of many buildings under the sea, some with stairs descending under the water. Your guide will explain the history of this ancient Lycian city so that you can imagine how it once looked. On Kekova Island search for remaining walls and doors of the monumental foundations, one of them considered to be a Byzantine church. Plenty of Lycian sarcophagi can be seen either on the island or in the sea. Don't miss the opportunity to swim in the clear waters during a break.

After the cruise, you're driven to the ancient city of Myra, famous for its rock-cut tombs and large amphitheater. You will have enough time to discover many aspects with your guide, including the Lycian necropolis.

Your final visit is to the Church of St. Nicholas in Demre. Each year thousands of people from all around the world come here to see, touch, and pray at the marble sarcophagus considered to be the original tomb of St. Nicholas. The church was restored some years ago and now serves as a museum. Admire its interior covered by relatively well-preserved frescos.

Near the church stands a local restaurant where you're served an included buffet lunch before the drive back to Belek for hotel drop-off.

  • Great sights visiting the tombs and amphitheatre at Myra, the sunken City at Kekova and the church of St Nicholas with the wonderful frescos still visible in beautiful colours.
    Pick up was a problem due to my hotel being down in the system wrong and although the guide have us some great information on Turkey, it's residents and politics, we had no information given on the sites we visited, so will have to read up on them on the Internet later. That was a big disappointment.
    Lunch was basic, but tasty. Drinks expensive.

  • The tour to the Sunken City was not worth going to. There was not much to see at all. The tour of the Myra ruins was very interesting and worth visiting. St Nicholas's tomb was interesting however not much to see. The buffet lunch was not good however edible. Was disappointed as I booked an English tour however it was a Russian/German tour. The guide did the best he could with limited English however I lost out on a lot of information. I would only recommend visiting Myra and St Nicholas if catholic religion is important to you.
