Today is the most relaxing day of the cruise due to short travel time and smooth sailing. We head towards Kekova region, home of the Lycian ruins at Tersane which also includes the ruins of a later Byzantine church surrounding an old shipyard, Ottoman villages and the sunken city.
Our first stop is Tersane Bay, which means dry dock. Here we find marble and ancient church ruins all a few feet below the crystal clear waters. We stop for lunch at this location and have time for snorkeling. From here we follow the coast 500 meters towards the 'Sunken City', a Lycian city which sank over 2000, years ago after a major earthquake. We cruise along the coastline taking in the view of the ancient houses, columns and various remains under the water. There is an option for an organised sea kayaking tour along the coast for a closer look at the ruins. Here we have enough time to wonder through the village and stock up on supplies. Swimming is always an option for those wanting to stay at sea.
