secret islands to discover by luxury yacht in Turkey

Kekova, Turkey


Historic treasures lie just below the surface

The island of Kekova, between Kaş and Antalya, is uninhabited today but in Roman times it was a bustling port — which literally fell into the ocean during an earthquake in AD240. It left behind intact tombs and ancient villas, all perfectly preserved under a metre of crystal sea. Sadly, snorkelling is banned, but by kayak or paddleboard it is still one of the best underwater ruins to visit on a superyacht. Kekova is well worth a visit whether on a private yacht or enjoying a luxury yacht charter in Turkey.
