After leaving Kas
one sails past Uluburun and sets
a course for Kekova, a spot that is like heaven on earth. One first encounters the Sicak
peninsula at the end of which are two islands:
Toprakada and Karaada. Kekova island stretches out from here and it is because of this
island that the whole area is called Kekova. Passing among the islands and arriving at
Kekova, the safest anchorage is Ucagiz, which is a good, all-round harbor. Other places
may be used for short periods during visits.
At Kekova history and nature have merged and become inseparable. Such ancient cities are Aperlai,
Kekova, Simena, and Theimussa are
to be found in the vicinity.
