Turkey Villas Kas

Sights & Activities

Sights

The local beaches are Little Pebble & Big Pebble Beaches. Others can be found at Limanara, a short boat trip away, Kaputas on the road to Kalkan and Patara beyond Kalkan.

Kaputas Beach
About 20 / 30 minutes away, on the road to Kalkan, lies Kaputas Beach with it’s white sand and glorious turquoise water. A long series of steps leads down to Kaputas beach, where there is no shade by mid-day, so only the very energetic and hardy will be tempted to do more than just take ‘photos at the top!

Peninsula Beach
There are 2 small pebble beaches within 5 minutes drive (car/bus) of the Villas.

The hotel Aquapark is a 5 minute walk from the Villas and offers pool and slide for approximately 100 Turkish Lira.

Going Westwards
About 90 minutes drive away is Saklikent Gorge. This spectacular Gorge is one of the longest in the World. Ice cold water pours down the mountains in torrents and, for those brave enough, a swim will be more than just a little refreshing! Both here and at Yaka Park near Tlos (about ½ hour further on) platforms have been built over the rushing streams. Here you can relax with a cool drink or eat some of the trout for which this area is also renowned.

Apart from the Lycian Rock Tombs at Dalyan, there are breeding turtles and mud baths near by.

Throughout this part of Turkey there are numerous restaurants set on rivers where you can enjoy not only a trout meal or a wonderfully fresh salad, but also enjoy a refreshing swim in the river.

Both to the West and the East, there are many reminders of Turkey’s Ottoman past.

Heading East places worth visiting are:
Myra ~ The home of St Nicholas who we know as Santa Claus.

Olympos ~ Beyond Finike, where there is a wonderful Beach and Roman & Lycian Ruins.

And if you are still ambitious, head on towards Khimaira where flames burn constantly from the rocks due to the presence of sulpher gases.

Activities

There is plenty to do if you are particularly active.

Paragliding
Paragliding from the mountains behind Kas will provide breathtaking views over the harbour and surrounding area.

Diving
The coastline all around Kas provides a paradise for both novices and experienced divers. Lessons and diving trips by boat can be booked from several places in the harbour. 

Jeep Safaris
Jeep Safaris are a great way to see some of the surrounding Countryside River.

Canoeing & Kayaking
River Canoeing at Patara and Sea Kayaking in Kekova with it’s sunken city are very popular.

For the less active, a lazy day at sea or a night cruise on a Gulet might be more appealing. Meis Island A 40 minute boat trip will take you to the Greek Island of Meis (Castellorizo in Greek). This is the nearest Greek Island to Turkey and is worth a trip to see the difference in the 2 cultures.
