Overview

Pack your bathing-suit and journey south and west along the Mediterranean shore to Demre (Myra), where you will embark for a cruise to Kekova Island, site of the ancient city of Simena. Some of its Byzantine-era ruins are on the Island, others are submerged (Atlantis like) beneath the clear Mediterranean waters.

Gaze through the crystal clear sky blue water down at the Sunken city now populated by marine nature. Since it is not permitted to dive on the city itself, you can swim and snorkel in the area of Ucagiz instead.

Back on land you view the fertile river delta covered with orchards and greenhouses. In Myra, you will see Myra's ancient rock-hewn cliff tombs and Roman theater. Myra is famous as the seat of a 4th century Byzantine bishop named Nicholas who, sainted for charitable works, was changed by myth and legend into Santa Claus/Father Christmas. You will visit the church dedicated to him and see where he was buried.
