Located between Demre and Kaş, Kaleköy, or ‘Castle’s village’ on the island of Simena, faces Kekova Island on Turkey’s Mediterranean Coast. Set amidst a partially sunken Lycian necropolis, Kaleköy is overlooked by a Byzantine castle and was built in the Middle Ages to deter pirate attacks within the region. Today it features a Lycian necropolis and sarcophagi overlooking the water and semi-submerged ruins from the residential areas of Simena. The castle is an intriguing place to explore and has impressive views over the islets and rocky coves below. Kaleköy can easily be reached by boat on a day trip along this spectacular coastline or on foot from Üçağız.
