Kas is a delightful resort in Turkey’s Mediterranean region. Once a simple fishing village, Kas is now the region’s second largest resort.Tucked amongst towering cliffs and a dramatic coastline, Kas maintains its small-town charm with narrow cobbled streets containing many interesting shops and traditional restaurants.
Local outdoor activities include many water-oriented sports; the rugged coastline allows divers easy access to crystal clear Mediterranean waters. Kas is the main centre for trips by glass-bottomed boats to the sunken cites around Kekova Island, where views of the underwater ruins can be enjoyed.
Kas is built around the ancient ruins of Antiphellos. There is a Lycian-style sarcophagus at the start of the street dropping down to the harbour, also the imposing Lion Tomb, ruins of a Hellenic theatre, and many rock tombs set into the local hillsides all make for a spectacular setting. In addition to these wonderful sites, trips to surrounding historical and archaeological sites can be arranged.
Finally, a lively and varied night scene helps retain the resort’s standing as a charming holiday destination.
