Take a trip along a spectacularly beautiful coastal road, only twenty five minute’s away from Kalkan is another popular resort called Kas.  

This is a beautiful harbour town that is framed by the Taurus Mountains & was once called the ‘Land of Light’.

Kas is everything that a typical Mediterranean seaside resort in Turkey should be & naturally the harbour is the focal point of the town. The local tea gardens will provide delightful shady spots to relax & soak up the atmosphere in prior to exploring the labyrinth of narrow streets that meander through the old town. You will find that it is surrounded by old Turkish houses with rickety wooden balconies, overhanging with flowering bougainvillea that cascade down the winding mountain roads, which will show you the way to beautiful beaches & a harbour. The scented cobble lanes are packed with shops spilling out trinkets & carpets, colourful local shops & a local market place & with all of this combined, you will be provided with a real Turkish flavour.

Take a walk along the harbour while the fishing boats dock in & watch them unload their catch of the day. This will fill the air with the smell of fresh fish & naturally, the restaurants surrounding the harbour take full advantage of this & that is what makes Kas so great if you are a fish or seafood lover; all the restaurants produce excellent dishes & will be probably be one of the best fish dishes you ever taste.

Kaş is a centre for all outdoor sports & provides a range of activities for sporting enthusiasts including paragliding, trekking, canyoning, sea kayaking & scuba diving.

In addition to this, Kas is steeped in culture & the region affords many opportunities for exploration of numerous cultural sites together with the surrounding dramatic mountain ranges. In fact, if you stroll around the town, you’ll come across an ancient sarcophagus at the top of a street of small shops & the bay itself is backed by high cliffs that are dotted with rock tombs.

Kas is a well-kept town & one where you will easily adapt to laid back life of the Mediterranean.
