Belek Demre Myra Kekova Tour

Prepare for a history lesson unlike any other.  Your tour to the region of Demre and Myra takes you back 1800 years to none other than Saint Nicholas, or Santa Claus himself.  This legendary man was born in the town of nearby Patara, to a wealthy family.  He became known for his generosity and was found to have put several bags of gold through an open window of one mans house to alleviate his financial ruin.

Ever wondered where the gold coins in your christmas stocking came from?  As an older man he became Bishop of Demre, where he provided safety and shelter for women and children.  Today many statues testify to his goodness and kind deeds throughout this area. If you didn’t believe in Santa Claus before you visited, you will when you leave.

This tour takes you back to the time of Saint Nicholas and the dawn of Christianity, with its early churches, many now sunken treasures only visible to divers or visitors to the region who catch glimpses of the watery past.  Steeped in its very own legends this tour is a must see for anyone who loves true history.

Belek Demre Myra Kekova Tour Itinerary

After picking you up from your hotel in Belek, you will travel westerly towards Demre. Your guide will give you greater detail about the Saint and his life, as you walk in the footsteps of one of history’s greatest legends. Then follows a boat ride to the underwater city of Kekova near the current day village of Dolochiste, you will marvel at the shimmering ruins beneath the Meditteranean waves.

When your boat ride ends, you may visit the Anatolian stone centre, again with a little free time to explore the gift shop.

Your last stop will be the antique city of Myra, where you can walk among the existing streets as though time had never marched on.  The ancient Roman theatre is also worth a visit as are the Lycian rock tombs above the city.  If you are willing to climb up you can even go inside one of them.

This once thriving area is now home to the birds, wildlife and grass that seems to grow from every stone slab.   Still something of this legacy lives on and for the discerning tourist, it only takes a little imagination.

From ancient Myra you return to your coach and the last stage of your journey back to your Belek hotel and rest.

Will my family enjoy this?

Anyone who is mobile can enjoy this tour.  There is a large amount of walking involved with respite inbetween.  Children can marvel at the history of Saint Nicholas, who wore the red robe of the cardinals and the beard essential to his culture and christianity at that time (who knows if it was white or not).  You do not need to have any particular religious beliefs to enjoy this tour.  If  you love the true history this is for you.

Is there anything in particular i need to bring with me?

Firstly, good footwear is essential.  You will cover quite a bit of ground in this tour. Secondly, your sunhat, sunglasses and suncream.

Don’t forget your camera!  Some of history’s most alluring images are waiting for you, you wouldn’t want to miss a thing.

A jacket or sweater for cooler days (not peak season) and most definitely do bring some money with you.  Not only for those extra snacks or refreshments, but also for the visits to the site shops and those unmissable artefacts on sale.
