Kale Köy (ancient Simena)

Slip in to Kale Köy and use one of the 3 restaurant pontoons jutting out from the village sea front.  You will see the proprietor or staff waving their arms or a flag and indicate which side to use.  You will need to moor side too so prepare fenders on both sides of the yacht and you will need bow and stern lines with springs.  The restaurants supply electricity and water for free and you may use their WiFi all they will expect is that you use the restaurant for your evening meal.  The restaurants are: Roma Hassan, Hassan Deniz and the Lykya.  They are much the same and will give great service and food.

It is worth spending some time to explore the ancient village and drift back two millennia.  Spend the early evening walking up through this small hamlet which has not changed in a two thousand years.  Climb to the old castle from the Knights of St Johns era, although there has been a fortress here many centuries before, which also boasts a small amphitheatre where it gave it’s audience a breathtaking view of the sound east and westwards.  Then spend the rest of the evening enjoying a succulent Turkish meal at a restaurant sitting on the waters edge, viewing ancient ruins and partly submerged sarcophagi.   Later tempt yourself to wander back up to the old style shops and barter yourself a great deal with some quality made clothing or carpets.

Awaken to swim or canoe around the sunken sarcophagi, breakfast at the Methap Restaurant enjoying a stunning view across the waters amongst the vividly coloured bougainvilleas. An alternative to the schedule is to visit by road, from Uçağiz village, the town and ruins of Demre (where you’ll find the church dedicated to Saint Nicholas, the patron saint of the sailor and pawnbroker, but is better known as Santa Claus).  St Nicholas who was born in Patara then became a Bishop of the Diocese of Demre around 300 AD.  Or maybe just slip across the sound to view the Sunken city of the old site of ancient Semina.
