Kas, once an unspoiled fishing village, is now a relatively unspoiled tourist town on the southern bulge of Turkey’s Mediterranean coast.
Kaputas Beach is a long beach between Kas and Kalkan in southwestern Turkey. It is situated at a distance of 20 km from Kas and 7 from Kalkan, at a point where an extremely narrow valley towered by steep cliffs and forests joins the sea shore in the cove of the same name as the beach (Kaputas). The beach is quite popular among visitors to the region due to its untouched natural beauty commanded by a view from the heights traversed by Kas-Kalkan road.
Ruins of the ancient town of Antiphellos mix with modern buildings in Kas. Across the water to the south lies the Greek island of Megisti.
Kas is also a good base for exploring the plentiful ancient Lycian cities and archeological sites such as Demre (Kale), Patara, Xanthos (Kinik), Leto?n, Saklikent and Tlos.
A popular excursion from Kas is Kekova island in the neighbouring district of Demre. Here in the magnificent bays you will see a surprising variety of wrecks of ancient ships and ancient cities sunk under the sea by earthquakes over the centuries. The sea is so perfectly clear that the details of city buildings such as staircases or columns can be seen from the boat. The area is ideal for sea kayaking. In December 2006 Kas was added to the specially protected Kekova marine area in order to preserve its rich biodiversity.
