Kekova, Myra, St Nicholas Church Full-day Private Tour / Shore Excursion from Antalya

Explore Myra/Kekove and visit St Nicholas Church including a Boat tour in this tour / shore excursion


Sailing to the ancient sunken city, Kekova island and Simena, by boat.
"Kekova" is Turkish for "plain of thyme" and it still grows wild there now. There will be a chance to swim in the clear blue waters here.
Visit Myra, the home of St Nicholas (a. k. a Santa Claus). which is well known for its amphitheatre (the largest in Lycia) and rock-cut tombs carved into the cliff above the theatre.
Lunch will be at Andriaki, which was Myra's seaport in Lycian times. Today there are several small restaurants with great sea views. We can eat fish or grilled meat all served with fresh salad.
St Nicholas Church, near Myra, contains the sarcophagus of St. Nicholas, who was a popular bishop in the 4th century AD, famous for his miracles and known for his kindness.
An early start is necessary to avoid traffic.
