Tourism in Kas: Tourism in Kas is international and tends to be of the more elite kind. The town is especially popular with the English, the Germans, the Scandinavians, the French, the Belgians and the Dutch, who come here in search of privacy, peace and quiet, comfort, nature, culture, active pursuits and fine cuisine. There is no mass tourism in Kas - no sprawling (all-inclusive) resorts or apartment complexes with organized entertainment. Many hikers pass through Kas as they walk The Lycian Way (a 509 km way-marked footpath around the coast from Fethiye to Antalya). The Lycian coast - and Kas especially - is famous for its beauty. Kas is recommended in various travel guides and is a stop over for the cruises in traditional wooden Gulets: the Blue Voyages.
Kas is centrally situated in relation to many interesting antiquities, cultural attractions and areas of natural beauty, which makes it an ideal base camp for day trips and excursions.
Sights: On the outskirts of Kas there is a small and reasonably well-preserved Hellenistic amphitheatre. From the highest row of seat you have a fabulous view of the sea. On the hill between the theatre and the market there are a few free-standing Lycian tombs. On the other side of the street from the theatre, there is the barely recognizable ruin of an ancient temple. In the hills immediately behind Kas there are a large number of Lycian rock graves that date back to the fourth century BC. You can see these graves from the town centre, and during the high season they are lit up on some evenings.
Kas is centrally situated in relation to many interesting antiquities, cultural attractions and areas of natural beauty, which makes it an ideal base camp for day trips and excursions. The most popular day trips and excursions are mentioned below. It is definitely worth going on a boat trip to the ancient Lycian city of Kekova, the remains of which are mostly submerged.
You can go swimming and snorkelling during the trip. Lunch is usually included and is consumed in one of the little restaurants on the waterfront in Kekova. After lunch you have time to go and see the castle of Kekova and the Lycian graves. You can also go on a boat trip to one of the many little islands just off the coast. If you hire a car, you can visit the ruins of the ancient city of Myra, the St Nicholas basilica at Demre, the waterfall between Kas and Kalkan and the stunning Saklikent Gorge all on the same day. Try to be at the gorge around lunch time if you can, so you can lunch on the floating platforms on the river. Lovers of antiquity should also make a point of visiting the highly recommended ruins of Tlos along the way. A trip to Xanthos, which is inland from Kalkan, is also definitely worth doing.
