Photographer's Note

An old scan from a compact camera dating back to 1999.... Kekova.

Kekova Island and the town of Kale (Simena) nearby Antalya make an idyllic daytrip for the travellers looking for a combination of sunshine, swimming and fascinating historic ruins. Many operators run daily trips from Kas.

From inscriptions that have been found, the history of the ancient city of Simena goes back to the 4th century B.C. If we go ashore via the jetty next to the sarcophagus on the seashore and climb the hill behind the houses, we reach the castle of Simena. This castle was used during the Middle Ages by the Byzantines.
