Kekova gulet cruise is one of the best cruise routes you can have in Turkey. Amazing nature. Interesting history and lots of amazing places to swim and snorkel. If you go to Kekova with a gulet you will not be sorry.
As the owner of gulet Pam Due says: “Kekova (sunken city) for me is the best place. lf the clients are new, l say to them ”go see Kekova”. It is an amazing place.”
I 100% agree with him.
One of the best ways to see Kekova region is to go on a Lycian gulet cruise. Start the cruise in Marmaris (also Gocek and Fethiye might be possible for this) – in either case, you have to fly to Dalaman airport and then cruise south to see Kekova, Kas, Kalkan and some other places.
One of the highlights if you cruise Kekova region is for sure Sunken city of Kekova!
Check out Kekova – Simena castle
The name Kekova is Turkish for “plain of thyme” and describes the region encompassing the island of Kekova, the villages of Kalekoy and Ucagiz and the three ancient towns of Simena, Teimussa and Tersane (meaning “dockyard”, as its bay was the site of an ancient dockyard, with mostly Byzantine ruins).
Both Simena and Teimussa have a large necropolis. Teimussa is now the village of Ucagiz where boats set off for cruises of the area.
Simena is an enjoyable place to visit for its great beauty and charm. For this reason, it is popular with Blue Cruises along Lycia’s Turquoise Coast.
