Kas Travel Guide
Antalya regions second major resort Kas is delightfully located among towering vertical cliffs. The dramatic rocky coastline creates easy access to clear and unpolluted Mediterranean waters, many options for outdoor activities, and a lively nightlife have maintained Kas, its reputation as a satisfying holiday place.
Kas is the centre for boats with glass bottoms making trips to the sunken cities around Kekova Island where remains of mysterious civilisations can be viewed just below the surface of the water. Trips can be arranged to the surrounding archaeological sites at Demre, Myra and the Xanthos Valley. Kas town is built around the remains of ancient Antiphellos, and there are ruins of a Hellenistic theatre, the monumental Lion Tomb, and some hillside rock tombs in and around the town. Despite the tourist development of what was once a simple fishing village, Kas still preserves its small town charm, with narrow cobbled streets and novel boutique shops.
Kas town has several good choices of restaurants and shops. It is a pretty and romantic town, very nice to walk around in. There are not any beaches in central Kas, only cliffs. Outside the town center there are a few beaches though, if you walk to one of them it might take you 20 minutes. In Kas there are a few ancient sites to explore such as an amphitheatre and Lycian grave monuments. You can make a day trip to Patara Beach with the local bus. Or walk to the (small) dolphinarium outside Kas. Other choices of activities is to go on a boat trip (marina in Kas) or make a day trip to Greek island Kastellorizo which is an island visible from Kas.
