Kekova Adası (Island)

One of the most romantically situated local antiquities are those submerged along the northern coast of Kekova Adası (Island), locally known as Batık Şehir (Sunken City).  The underwater remains of stairs, pavements, house walls long quay wall with its harbour warehouse footings can all be seen; however snorkelling or swimming over the ruins is prohibited, this is to prevent the removal of any antiquities.  The city sank during the 1st century AD around 47 AD due to a couple of major earthquakes suffered during this period.

You can motor along the edge of the cities water line with your yacht, better going astern, if you feel skilled enough, or enjoy it from one of the many glass bottomed boats. Kayak trips can be arranged from Uçağiz to visit the sunken city - This can be arranged through Bougainville Travel  from Kaş (Tele.: 0090 2428363737 or they prefer e-mail booking on “Info@bougainville-turkey.com” or visit their website: www.bougainville -turkey.com.  Once booked you would need to meet the tour at Uçağiz for 0930 hrs and the return time is 1500 hrs  - 3 o’clock pm).  The cost will be between €30 - 35 per person

At the south west tip of the island you can find Tersane Bay (meaning ‘dockyard’), where the apse of a long vanquished church stands.  The bay is ideal for an overnight anchorage and can be during the day, but many local boats make day visits and as the bay is quite small and there is only room for 3 to 4 boats.  If you are intending to moor there then be aware of the underwater walls that used to belong to the ancient dockyard.  The ruins are great to explore and snorkelling around the edge is fun.

You will also find a very secluded inlet on the south east of the island called Karaloz.
