Kekova Sound, Kas

4.4
#2 of 7 in Parks in Kas
Beach Nature / Park
At Kekova Sound, view the ruins of the ancient Lycian sunken city, Simena, through crystal clear waters. The residential areas of the city became partly submerged when a series of destructive earthquakes in the 2nd century caused a downward shift in the land. Hop on a glass-bottom boat tour leaving from Kekova Island, Kas, or Ucagiz to view the underwater staircases and foundations, as swimming here is banned. You can take a dip in one of the many other inlets and keep an eye out for sea life, such as fish and sea turtles. Work out when and for how long to visit Kekova Sound and other Kas attractions using our handy Kas tour planner.

Where to stay in Kas

When staying in Kaş, you have the option of accommodations downtown or seaside. Downtown lodging is more convenient to the bustling city and just a short walk from cafes and restaurants. The offerings include moderately priced hotels and inexpensive hostels and guesthouses. If you're looking for a bit more serenity, travel out on the peninsula and stay at the more upscale hotels seaside, which feature unspoiled waters and spectacular views just a short car ride from downtown. You can also scout out a handful of guesthouses here too, but there are no hostels.
