We will talk about what is above the surface, sorry, but not so much. Some houses of the Roman city, and all the ruins belong precisely to the Roman period, were on a hill. The remains of one of the houses in the photo below.
Guides say that it is the remains of Roman baths, but now to understand what it was exactly, baths or just at home, it is quite difficult.
Semi-submerged sarcophagus is perhaps the most popular place. Unsurprisingly, of all the objects that can be seen above the water, this is the most impressive.
On our excursion, we just floated by, the guide said that excursions do not stop here, but there are many photos of people on the Internet right near the sarcophagus. Excursion excursion is different.
After inspecting the ruins, the ship stops at a distance from them and gives about 30 minutes for tourists to dive into the sea and swim. If you intend to do this, then take your bathing clothes with you. Many tourists spend this time to sunbathe and take a photo for memory.
Let's pay attention, that it will not be possible to dive to ruins. Diving to ruins is prohibited by law.
Despite the fact that the excursion from the historical point of view has not so much valuable and interesting, its "highlight" is the walk on the ship. We can say that an excursion to the city of Kekova, it's "three in one", and look at the ruins, and on a boat ride and dive into the sea. From an economic point of view, the excursion can be considered beneficial. From this point of view, it looks like an excursion to Pamukkale, about which we have a separate review.
On an excursion to the city of Kekova, we recommend taking: first, water, as there will be no free or cheap water or drinks on the way, during the lunch the drinks are paid; secondly, headgear, you will have to spend almost all the time on the deck of the ship; Bathing suits, if you want to dive into the sea or sunbathe on the deck.
