An extraordinarily beautiful historical and natural landscape, a sparkling blue sea offers happy hours to those who travel.
In the citadel formed by the medieval walls, which are quite intact, there are houses and a temple ruins with very few block stones today, which 19th century travelers reported. The most interesting ruin in Simena is the theater, whose seats are carved into the natural rock. It is the smallest of the theaters in Lycia. The ruins of the bath, Lycian type rock tombs and sarcophagi, Roman period wall remains are among the ruins that can be seen on the shore.
