Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Gemiler / St Nicholas is a fun site to explore albeit it can be quite busy given it is s popular anchorage and is easily accessible from the mainland.

The island served as a religious sanctuary and has some interesting ruins on the way up to the panoramic viewpoint on the top including church ruins, some interesting mosaics, a long vaulted walkway down the ridge and a large cistern

Worth the effort to explore

Gemiler Island or Saint Nicholas Island is a must sea place while in the area.
We took a taxi boat to get here, and after a short ride a a bit of hiking we got out of words as the views are simply amazing and breathtaking.
Also the ride to get there is out of this world.

Second stop on our boat tour and probably my favorite. We had a great time climbing around this island and the ruins that were left here. The views from the top are great and we got to see the only residents left on the island, the goats. Bring good walking/climbing shoes if you go.

The beach is gorgeous off season- too small if too busy in peak season. The island is definitely worth a visit, full of ruins and the most breathtaking view.

The drive down to this is outstanding. However do not use the cafe/restaurant. Total rip off. There are no menu's so beware. Only had 6 cokes and it cost £18. When we asked for the price list, he said the prices were in his head!!!!
Do not go in!!!! Beware

Went by car and loved the place was amazing and real ( Serenity ) and calm sea but was shocked by the Restaurant bill. You can go to five star places closely nearby and pay a bit less and this restaurant is below two stars sorry. I do reccomend bringing your own food and beverages with you. ( A piece of an advice AVOID the Restaurant !!!)

We anchored our sailboat the the Gemiler Bay, we visited the island and ancient ruins at sunset which was lovely, the ruins were fantastic.

Like other said beware of buying stuff on the little boats that come up to you, they have menus without prices, guy charged us £30 for 5 ice creams! We didn't eat at the restaurant.

We visited this island as part of a guided tour. There were only a couple trails up and also down. I would recommend hiking boots or shoes with good traction as the paths contain uneven rocks, large step ups and step downs, and sections of very small, loose rocks on inclines. All of the many churches are in ruins but the views of the huge cistern, and the remaining arches with the blue sky and blue water as background are worth the climb. There is a enclosed walkway (mostly in ruins) from the water to the top that is very interesting. There are also a few traces of graves near a church and at the very peak of the island.

We got totally ripped off in the cafe opposite the island. Totally over priced food of low quality and quantity
The island itself is beautiful and very interesting

We came here with boat trip, worth going in and climb up the hill appreciating those ancient ruins. Especially if you are interested in that particular field of history about Saint Nicholas.
Pity was that we were only allowed 1hr here which personally think was bit tight, a group from the boat was lost on the island so running late for the boat to leave.
Some people didn't go up and simply sit on the beach or climbed along the rocks.
Entrance fee is 10 Lira as of April 2019.
