I stopped by going from Patara to Kas. Amazing views but there is a lot of garbage around. Thereis no direct transportation option by car.

This is a much needed place to visit for the history and the people. It is a steep walk to the castle, but the view is well worth the workout!

Kalekoy is a beautiful place when you see from the boat. However when you visit the village it was so disappointing.

There's something to please everyone here. The sunken city of Kekova is an unbelievable sight. The village has the most friendly people and the best ice cream possible. The castle on the hill has the best views around. The water is perfect for swimming or just to be stared at, I mean, look at the blue tones! it's the kind of place you want to go and stay!

Kaleköy (ancient Simena) is a small village only accessible by boat, either from the nearby ports of Üçağız or Demre Çayağzı. Simena was an ancient Lycian village (4th C BC, predating the Greek conquest). Today, it is a small secluded village with steep cobblestone streets, white stone houses, small walled gardens and fruit trees. The harbor area is lined with seafood restaurants and “meyhanes” (Turkish tavernas). Food and lodging are available in the village. A steep path leads to the ruins of the crusader castle above. Built by the Knights of St. John from Rhodes, the fortress contains the ruins of battlements, bastions, an ancient temple and the smallest extant Lycian amphitheater (seven rows and 300 theater seats). The area has been settled for millennia; a graveyard 100m east of the fortress is littered with huge boat-shaped Lycian sarcophagi, turning the area into an open-air museum. During Greek and Roman times the economy was built around the production of Tyrian dye, a deep and costly purple dye produced from the Murex sea snail. Lycian, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman artifacts can be seen around the village grounds, and parts of the ancient city walls are still visible. Simena Fortress is open (mid-Apr–Oct) 8am-7pm, and Nov–mid-Apr,closes at 5pm. There is an entry fee of 14 ₺.

It is a nice historic village which has almost no direct highway connection. The local people can only make their trips by boat. As a visitor, you can have a chance to see this village -possibly- in the tour of Kekova. There are many nice restaurants, cafes, and shops. At the top, the remnant of ancient castle is waiting for you. When you make some shopping in Kalekoy, you can support the local people's life economically because they do not have much chance to earn money except the touristic season in summer time.

I really liked this place since it is so quiet and peaceful and it also has too much history as being in the middle of the sunken city. You can get there with the daily boat trips. The village is so small and beautiful that you must see, also the locals in there are so friendly. You should definitely try the homemade ice cream in there, some locals are really making them by theirselves and they are sooo tasty :)

Wow. Must see part of the earth. For a few days or even just an hour during a boat trip, it's just a must experience place.
