Sea Kayaking over the Sunken City

Sea Kayaking in the calm waters of the Kekova Preservation Area is the best and ecologically right way, to visit the Sunken City and the home of Monk Seals.

INTRODUCTION
The Kekova area offers quiet bays and unspoilt scenery, to discover.
The natural beauty of the surrounding area guarantees that the complete beginner will love to paddle here as much as the experienced kayaker.
There is no previous kayaking experience needed, it just needs some adventure spirit and reasonable fitness.

SUMMARY
Ucagiz village is a good place to start our excursion. After some preparation and training there will be plenty of time to get a feeling for paddling and the kayaks.
Then the group paddles southwards to Tersane Bay. This beautiful bay has fine sand and clear water for a swim and the surrounding ruins offer opportunity to explore. The next part of our trip goes along the cost of the Kekova Island right above the ruins of the sunken City. Once finished with sightseeing we paddle across to the mainland. Simena Village has a Castle with great views and lovely cafes for relaxation. Finally we get back in our kayaks for the rock-labyrinth and the necropolis. At the end a delicious lunch is waiting for you in a local restaurant.
