Set off on an enchanting journey to the serene and picturesque port of Kekova. Upon arrival at the harbor, you will step aboard a glass-bottom boat, an ideal vessel for marveling at the submerged ruins of an ancient city lying beneath the waves.

As you glide over the crystalline waters, the boat offers a unique window into the past. Below you, the remnants of the once-thriving Lycian city unfold: underwater structures and staircases leading into the depths, whispering tales of a bygone era. An expert guide will accompany you, weaving the rich tapestry of the city’s history, from its Lycian roots through Byzantine times, revealing stories behind the defensive walls and the ruins of a Byzantine Church as the boat nears Kekova.

The journey on water concludes back at the harbor, where you will reboard the bus to explore the historical marvels of Myra. This ancient city, celebrated for its dramatic rock-cut tombs carved into cliff faces and a grand amphitheater, comes to life through your guide’s narration. The voyage progresses to Demre, home to the revered Church of Saint Nicholas. Within its walls lies a marble sarcophagus believed by many to be the final resting place of Saint Nicholas himself. Now a museum, the church attracts thousands of visitors each year to pay homage.

The tour’s culinary highlight awaits in Demre, where a local restaurant offers the chance to savor freshly prepared delicacies. This lunch stop also provides a moment of relaxation before the journey resumes.

Your full-day adventure culminates with the return trip to Alanya, ensuring you arrive back at your accommodation with a heart full of joyful memories and a mind enriched by the unique experiences of this remarkable journey.

It was a fantastic experience. Mesmerizing. It was fantastic.
The boat excursion in the Mediterranean with all the different shades of blue was a visual pleasure. The sunken metropolis, the necropolis, and the massive amphitheatre all transported you to a magical past.
