Demre (former official name: Kale) is a town in Mediterranean Turkey. This is the town where St Nicholas ("real" Santa Claus) lived. Ancient name of the town is Myra.

Get in

Demre lies on the highway D400, which connects Fethiye in the west with Antalya in the east along the Lycian coast. Many buses running town to town on this highway connect Demre with Kalkan, Kaş, Finike, and Olympos among others.

Lycian Way, a way-marked hiking trail connecting Fethiye with Antalya, also passes through Demre.
