Start your day with morning pickup in Antalya then travel on scenic switchbacks with views of the Mediterranean Sea.
During the drive, stop for a short break at a viewpoint over the city of Kumluca, known for its tomato farms, and Finike, an ancient sea port.
Arrive in Demre (known as Myra in ancient times) where you see Lycian ruins, including the necropolis carved into the stone cliffs, and a stunning theater. Tour St. Nicholas Church, the church in Demre named for the 4th-century bishop of Myra. The church is known for its colorful frescos, the sarcophagus of St. Nicholas, and three other monuments to the saint.
Have lunch at a local restaurant, then drive about 30 minutes to Ucagiz pier. From there, board a boat for the cruise to Kekova Island. See the ruins of ancient Byzantine buildings, fortresses, theaters, and sarcophagi on the smaller and larger islands, and view a number of amphoras through the glass-bottom boat. If weather permits, take a swim in the clear waters of the gulf.
Afterward, return to the port and end your tour with hotel drop-off.
