Day 4 - Tuesday - Kekova Island - Ucagiz - Kalekoy
To the region known as the Kekova islands for a visit Kekova Island, Ucagiz and Kalekoy (ancient Simena). The sunken city is located off Kekova Island and as the water is exceptionally clear, it is possible to make out the outlines of the buildings. Following an earthquake, the land subsided and took the remains of a settlement with it. Ucagiz is a small village with a couple of restaurants. Take a walk from here to view rock-tombs, the remains of a fort and several sarcophagi. The highlight of a visit to the Kekova islands follows an uphill climb to the medieval fortress of ancient Simena, crowning the hill above the village of Kalekoy. The view from the top is breathtaking.
