We visited the Rock Tombs on a boat trip, we stopped under them to take photos, you can not go up close to them, but worth viewing anyway. Probably better to keep tourists from trampling all over them and ruining them. Amazing the work that went into making these.

These rock tombs were built approximately 2500 years ago and well preserved until now. It is not possible to see inside.

We took the rowing boat over with our mountain bikes (which didn't cost any extra), very cheap and the ladies are fabulous. Great trip on your own or with a guide. The tombs are amazingly preserved.

If you are going to the beach by public boat have your camera ready as you sail past them. Not accessible on foot but a great photo opportunity. Walk by the riverside at night to view them lit ,

Worth a trip to see the tombs which are carved into the natural rock face. We did the tour by boat and this afforded some good photo opportunities. Well worth a look.

This is the closest Lycian rock tombs I have been able to approach. Very impressive. Very good condition.. great for photography. Obviously as with all Lycian tombs which are in cliffs, you cannot actually enter them, as they are too high in the cliffs to access.

Visited the tombs as part of a day trip booked with Basket Travel. You get given alot of information about them and like the pyramids in Egypt it's amazing to see them in person and 'feel the history'
