Gemiler Bay

The path that reaches out by going over the hill behind Kaya Koy will take you to another beauty, which is surrounded by olive and pine trees, to Gemiler Bay. St. Nicholas Island (Gemiler Island) situated just across the Gemiler Bay can be reached by a boat and ruins that are from the Byzantine times can be seen. It is understood from the findings that have been brought into the daylight during the excavations started by a Japanese Archaeology team together with the Fethiye museum in 1990 that it has been a important centre for visiting during the early Christianity era and the Saint of the seas, Nicholas had lived in this island.
