Search Kas

Kas is a noted resort in Turkey's Mediterranean region. Once a fishing village tucked among lofty cliffs, Kas maintains its small-town ambience with little shops on narrow lanes.

Local outdoor activities include water-oriented diversions; the rugged coast allows divers ready access to clear Mediterranean waters. Kas also is the launching point for trips by glass-bottomed boat. Around Kekova Island, views of underwater ruins just below the water's surface can be enjoyed.

Kas is built around the ruins of long-ago Antiphellos. There is a Lycian-style sarcophagus at the start of the street that drops down to the harbor, the imposing Lion Tomb, ruins of a Hellenic theater, and rock tombs set in local hillsides. In addition, trips to surrounding archaeological sites can be organized.

Finally, an effervescent night scene helps preserve the resort's standing as a gratifying visitor destination.
