Kas - Antalya / Turkey


Kaş Overview
A Lycian city, Kaş, is located on the hillside of a high mountain. Its name was Antiphellos in antiquity and Andifli in the Ottoman period. The shape of the land formed by the sea is the origin of its present name Kaş (eyebrow).

Because modern Kaş is located on the site of the ancient city some of the monuments have been destroyed. The major monuments worth seeing are the theatre, the acropolis, rock or sarcophagus -type tombs, a cistern, the Greek church, and Ottoman houses.

Regular trips by boat or coach are made from Kaş to surrounding sites of Kalkan, the Kaputaş beach, Kekova Island, Simena and Üçağız.

Some beaches in the center and Li-manağzı district, reached by a short boat trip, are good for swimming.
