On the way to our first island the waves were very calm and there was no wind, it was easy to get used to paddling and I picked up the technique pretty good. Our first stop was at the Kekova island which was followed by a 30 minute swim break. It felt good to stretch the arms out and cool off the in sea, but before we knew it we were back on our kayaks. From there the group slowly paddles over the ancient Lycian Sunken City not to disturb the ruins and also to get a good look at them. The area is off-limits to swimmers and divers so kayaking is the closest you can get to the underwater foundations, walls and mosaics dating back 2000 years
After exploring over the sunken city we headed to another Simena Village which has a Castle with great views and lovely cafes for relaxation ( AKA- a nice refreshing Efes) After our beer we got back in our kayaks to paddle by rock-labyrinth and the necropolis. Heading back to the mainland was a little tricky at the point, the wind had picked up and the waves were going over our kayak. Some people were really struggling with this leg of the trip, but I had to go to the bathroom really bad, so I just battled through. At the end a delicious lunch was waiting for us in a local restaurant, and it was scrumptious after all that hard work at sea.
Once our arms were all tired we had a 2.5 hour car trip ahead of us to Antyala. But don't worry we were only going to an all inclusive resort to lay there in the sun for two days.
We booked a two night stay at the Titanic hotel. Yes, it was shaped like the Titanic, and the rooms, hallways, and corridors all mimicked being in a boat. It was a very nice resort, it is only a couple of years old and it is in immaculate condition
