Kale Köyü (also known as Simena)

The remote, rocky coastline around the village of Kale Köyü is spectacularly beautiful. Shallow, calm, turquoise waters – protected by the dramatic bulk of uninhabited Kekova Island across the strait – lap at the promontory on which the attractive village huddles beneath the fairy-tale castle of the Knights of St John.

Kale Köyü (“castle village”) is still only reachable on foot or by boat. With just three simple but homely pensions and a scattering of old Greek houses peeping from amid luxuriant foliage, there’s little to do except relax or explore the castle (daily April-October 8am-8pm, November-March 8am-5pm; £2.20) and the 2,000-year-old Lycian tombs below it.

Üçağız, the attractive village from where boats to Kale Köyü depart, has a Lycian necropolis, and boats and kayaks running out to the underwater ruins off Kekova Island.

Around Kale Köyü

The bustling resort town of Kaş (below) is half an hour away by car, and energetic visitors may want to walk the Lycian Way the 13 miles west to the same destination, taking in the attractive but little-visited Lycian sites of Aperlae and Apollonia. There’s a less formidable walk east to the beach/river-mouth of Cayağızı and the Roman/Byzantine site of Andriake, currently under excavation.

Alternatively a half-hour drive will be bring you to Demre, a scruffy market town centred on the impressive Byzantine Church of St Nicholas (daily April-October 8am-7pm, November-March 8am-5pm; £4.40), famed for its Father Christmas associations. Tucked into the feet of the rock-cut, tomb-punctured cliffs behind Demre are the remains of the ancient city of Myra (daily April-October 8am-7pm, November-March 8am-5pm £4.40), notable for a well-preserved theatre and grotesque relief carvings of Roman-era masks.
