It is an old Roman naval base which has been destroyed by earthquakes and partially sunken. Nothing much to see but a good boat ride . If you have visited Rome and Athens then nothing much of interest !!

Interesting to hear the history and see a land that has just remnants of life in a different age - great day out

Had a fabulous day visiting the sunken city. Beautiful weather, lovely boat, clear sea so you can see everything. Lovely little blue fish darting around the sea. The views are amazing along the way too.

Many centuries ago there were several earthquakes, each of which sank the island of Kekova a little more. All the boat tours go there. However I would recommend a tour company that will explain the history of the region and not just float by. We...More

Our time was limited. A private trip in a small boat with a local captain , was the perfect solution. It was eery riding over the sunken city thinking of what was lying below us.

Bit of a disappointment really. Thought it would be much more than it was. However, the boat trip was excellent with some great places visited for swimming and kids to have fun.
