Kekova, which is a small but very delightful Turkish island near Demre town of Antalya province in the Mediterranean region of Turkey, also known as the Sunken City, since it is partially flooded.
The island of Kekova is a protected area known not only for its clear turquoise waters but also its ancient sunken city and an idyllic seaside village. In the clear sea water you can see the remains of stairs and walls of the sunken city under the water. It is believed that an earthquake destroyed this ancient city in 2 AD, slipping under the waters, as was the case of the cities of Aperlai and Simena.
