Turkey - The island of Kekova is accessible by boat from Kalkan or Kas.  Kekova is a submerged port dating back to the 5th century BC, when Lycia was an important kingdom in this region. The Lycian capital was Xanthos , an hour west of Kekova, where King Sarpedon, who fought in the Trojan Wars, originally came from.   Adjacent to Kekova's underwater ruins are the beautiful ruins of Simena, dating back to the 4th century BC.
