Kas is the most southerly of all the Turkish resorts. Nestling between the Mediterranean coast and 500m high mountains it is protected from the prevailing northerly winds. Kas therefore enjoys a very pleasant climate all year round with an average of 300 days sunshine per year.
The town is built around the remains of ancient Antiphellos, and there are ruins of a Hellenistic amphitheatre, the monumental Lion Tomb, and hillside rock tombs in and around the town. It is the centre for glass-bottomed boat trips and sea kayaking to the sunken cities around Kekova Island where the remains of ancient civilisations can be viewed just below the surface of the water. Visits can be arranged to the surrounding archaeological sites at Demre, Myra and the Xanthos Valley. (Go to www.lycianturkey.com and click on 'Sites of Ancient Lycia' for further information.)
Patara Beach, voted one of the best beaches in the world, is just a 45 minute drive from Kas and is certainly worth a visit. It is a protected beach because loggerhead turtles nest there at night and the ruins of an ancient city are beside.
Kas is the perfect place for relaxation, romance and adventure. "As a resort, Kas has style, with some of the best shops and restaurants on the Mediterranean coast. An influx of fashion designers and artisans have made the town a centre for arts and crafts, jewellery and textiles. It also has numerous excellent restaurants, a healthy array of trendy bars and cafes, and a sprinkling of discos." (Insight Guides)
Very few places allow you to combine white-water rafting, sea kayaking, paragliding, scuba, canyoning and mountain trekking, as well as horse riding, canoeing, waterskiing, mountain biking and fishing. All of these are on offer from Kas. In particular Kas is renowned for diving - the Mediterranean around Kas has the best visibility and greatest variety of sea life of the entire Turkish coast, as well as the shortest transfer times to close to thirty dive sites. Half day taster dives are a great introduction. (See www.bougainville-turkey.com for further information.)
Kas is also an important stopping point for the 'Blue Voyage' gulet cruises and you can charter a boat to tour along the beautiful coastline and see remote coves and islands only accessible by boat. The Lycian Way, rated one of the worlds top 10 walks, passes through Kas.
An annual national arts festival is hosted in Kas at the end of June when Turks arrive from all over the country to enjoy dance, music and art displays.
