Kas is a beautiful town of whitewashed houses, covered with the rich purples of bougainvillea. It lies in a small bay nestled into the mountains not far from the southern point of Lycia. As with many parts of the Lycian coast, this small, sleepy fishing village has been transformed into a lively vacation centre.

A short walk from the harbour will bring you to an ancient theatre hidden amongst olive trees and a marvellous view across to the Greek island of Castellorizo.
