Kas


Travel and LeisureFodorsUSA TodayNew York TimesNational GeographicWashington PostVogue
Turkey’s unspoiled coastal town has all the charm of a Mediterranean village and all the energy of a vibrant city, all in view of the cerulean sea.
Mention Kas to a certain type of Istanbul resident, and their eyes will get dreamy. Kas is the ideal escape for someone who wants the Mediterranean lifestyle with all the culture of a vibrant city. Located just far enough away from the two main Mediterranean airports to keep its distinct character unspoiled and occupying a gorgeous stretch of blue seaside, Kas has enough beaches, bars, and innovative restaurants to keep you busy for days. The steep streets of the town burst with magenta bougainvillea and sailboats bob in the harbor that abuts the charming central square, where on summer nights people of all ages sit around with ice cream cones or promenade by the sea.
Kas is one of Turkey’s prominent locations for diving, with various ruins and wrecks old and new not far from shore and many diving schools offering lessons for both beginners and more advanced divers. But you don’t have to go underwater to find traces of Kas’ history, with the Antiphellos Amphitheater located prominently on the peninsula and various Lycian tombs dotting the area, including the Lions Tomb in the center of the city. With so much to see and experience, and so many opportunities to relax or explore, Kas keeps up its intense magnetic pull.
