What you'll do

Beginning in the early morning when the light is truly magical, we’ll meet at the Demre Harbour and step aboard one of my yachts. I’ll share with you the fascinating history of Kekova Island as we cruise through the crystal clear waters and see the enchanting ruins of its Sunken City. We’ll also visit Tersane Bay where you can see the remains of an old church apse and see the striking Simena Castle.
But this trip is not just about the rich history of the region but also its natural wonders. I’ll take you to some of the most idyllic swimming spots along the coast or (if you’re after adventure) we’ll head to Gokkaya Bay, which is renowned for its water sports. You’ll also have the chance to visit the photogenic Pirates Cave, which never fails to impress with its curved lines.

Meet your host, Egemen

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
I grew up by the Turkish Riviera and my family have been involved in yachting since 1997, so you could say that sailing is in my bones. After travelling throughout Asia and organizing boat voyages for family and friends I met along the way, I’ve returned to my hometown of Demre to share my love of yachting and the historic landscapes in my backyard.
