You can see old city of Lykia which had been built between 7-4 BC and had sunk in time with earthquakes. Swimming on these ruins is a wonderful feeling.

Great day on a boat, great for snorkelling with crystal clear sea. Food on the boat was great too. Saw lots of turtles. Had a nice refreshing drink in the bars in the quaint village. Take lots of suncream.
