Kas (pronounced Kash and written Kaş) has this magic to it… different somehow than other towns along the Mediterranean coast in Turkey.
A village vibe that is chill, but at the same time offers a ton to see and explore!
It has been my personal favorite in Turkey so far!
So let's dive in quickly without wasting any time...
THINGS TO DO IN KAS
Many of the activities here are based in, around, or on the water. I am a real water lover and maybe that’s why Kas struck a chord with me. But the best part is that the prices for boating around the islands and beaches of Kas are very reasonable.
1. SIMENA SUNKEN CITY AT THE KEKOVA ISLAND
How did the Sunken City come to be? Well so the story goes, 2000 years ago there was a huge earthquake and the city on Kekova Island literally slid into the ocean. Kind of horrific really when you think about it, but for now it has created an incredible piece of history to kayak over.
You can no longer rent a kayak from the neighbouring village of Kaleköy and take a self-guided tour. To reach the Simena Sunken City of Kekova you are now required to take a guided kayak tour.
