Kas Kalkan Myra Kekova Tour
This is one of the most interesting historical excursions where you will visit the towns of Kas, Kalkan, Demre and island of Kekova Turkey.
The first town of our tour will be Kalkan. It is a quiet, peaceful and charming resort on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. In the past it was a simple fishing village but now Kalkan has become a modern seaside resort with cozy small hotels, fine dining restaurants, a variety of shops and nice Kalkan beach.
Then we go to Demre. It is a small town known as a place of religious pilgrimage and the holy faith. The city has many names, the most famous are Demre, Myra and Kale. City of Myra was one of the six major Lycian cities. The exact date of the founding of the ancient city is unknown. According to the Lycian inscriptions the settlement existed here in the 5th century BC and was known as Myra. It is believed that in ancient times the word "myra" meant aromatic resin for production of incense. In that time the Myra was big city and had its own bishop - Nicholas of Myra, better known as Saint Nicholas or Santa Claus. He was buried in the ancient Lycian sarcophagus in the local church which now bears his name and is open to the public. This church is considered to be the third most important religious building of Byzantine architecture in the Orient. The Lycian rock tombs and the Greek - Roman theater survived as a reminder of the glorious past of the Demre Myra Turkey.
The next leg of our tour will be a boat trip to the Kekova island. In the north side of Kekova you will see the ruins of destroyed by an earthquake in the II century BC the ancient city Dolichiste that have partially gone under water but clearly visible in the transparent water.
On the way back we will visit another wonderful city - the city of Kas in Turkey and its Kas beach. This is one of the most "non-Turkish" resorts in Turkey. It is located in a fairly confined space at the junction of the Mediterranean and Aegean seas surrounded by mountains and pine forests from three sides. This resort is almost the only area place in Turkey where you will not see mass tourist, the reasons are simple - a sufficiently large distance from the airport and the lack of large hotels.
