The only access that is permitting of related places, is on the sea, which is undoubtedly the most important cause of untouched nature. Previously promoted fisheries and natural agriculture, 54 houses and 250 inhabitants of Kaleköy what has been replaced 20 years ago by tourism.
In Kaleköy (Simena)
You should have to go around close places; for example there are a lot of big and little bays. If you climb to the castle, you can see the most beautiful view of Kekova Island from there. Kaleköy is not a stop and go place, it has the nature and history inside. The houses; which are inside the city walls are made from the hoop stones in Kaleköy (antique name is Simena) fits very well to fine environment. There are no perverse constructions in Kaleköy. When you draw near to Kaleköy by seaway or when you look to the sea from the top of the hill, you'll see the most interesting structure which is a Lycian type tomb in the sea. There are a lot of tombs around the city that weights thousands of tons, especially you can see one on the left slope (according to Kekova) of the castle on the hill. In the castle on the top of the Simena, which is left from ancient Rome has a seven rowed small theatre is made from the rocks and worth to see. You can also see some of the Lycian structure and graves near Kaleköy.
It's described as a Rome city but the existance of Lycian type tombs tells that this city exists before Rome. A small theatre, a Turkish bath, a hero and monument graves in Acropole can also be seen.
It's one of the most important 5 cities in ancient Lycia which was established B.C. fifth century. Stone graves, theatre and St. Nicholas church are same of the structures which exist today also. In the year of A.c 245 St. Nicholas was born near Fethiye (Santa Claus, Heilige, Nikolaus) has been also lived in Myra to his death in A.C. 326.
This antique city which is established in a deep and narrow bay is surrounded by city walls. One part of the city is being covered with water because of the slidings made by an earthquake. You can see the harbour remnants, king graves and anforas which are spread to a wide area by diving the water with sea glasses.
Kekova Island; Sunken City and Shipyard Bay
Kekova Island which gives the name to the area extends along Kaleköy. The sunkencity (with the Turkish name Batıkşehir) in Kaleköy side of the island is worth to see. The old street and building remnants can be seen obviously under the water. It is supposed that the ancient city has been sunked to the water because of the big erthquake in second century (B.C.). If you go with your own vessel, like Aperlae and Simena you can dive with sea glasses and you can see the sunken city clearly. You will be so attracted. In the west side of the island there is shipyard bay. At the sea side near the bazilica remnants, the boats give a rest to let the guests swim. However the shore is a little stony, its not a problem for swimming. Along trough the boat tour there is also a place called "blue cave". The cave is big enough for getting in with the boat. As in other caves there are a lot of colors which is being made by the sun beams.
In the east side of the Üçagiz there are remnants of antique city of Theimiussa. Inside the remnant there are an epitaph written in the language of Lycia and a human and animal figured ancient Rome tombs. This village offers also stores and restaurants as well as diving and canoeing. It is 10 Min. away by boat from Kaleköy / Simena.
