Other attractions are the old town of Side with the Temple of Apollo right on the harbor and the ancient city of Myra with its rock-cut tombs in a Lycian necropolis. Myra is known as a place of pilgrimage because of thence originating Nicholas of Myra.

Another tour takes you to Kekova, a small island on the Lycian coast near the city of Demre. On the north side of the island are partly sunken ruins of the ancient city Dolikhiste. The trip to Kekova leads along many small islands with ruins that protrude partially out of the water.
