See Tombs of the Kings, an ancient burial site of Hellenistic and Roman administrative officers and distinguished people, and their families. Just steps from the sea, the site has a typical Eastern Mediterranean feel to it, with small sand dunes, low grass and bushes, and palm trees. Take a self-guided tour among the ruins and enter the atriums carved into natural rock to see niches in the walls that were used for burials. Used between the 3rd century BCE and the 4th century CE, the site features Doric pillars and architectural styles from Alexandria, Delos, Pergamon, and Priene.

Found this really fascinating, but it's appeal depends entirely on your interests. If you enjoy learning about the places you visit and catching a glimpse of ancient history, this will be right up your street. Some of the tombs are better preserved than others, so a little imagination is required in places.
Well worth a visit. Need good footwear. Kids will love exploring too. €2.50 entry. Well worth it. Visit later in day as cooling and fantastic sun sets for more atmosphere. Toilets at entrance but bring own water.
