The Best things to Do in Kas, Turkey
As the weather turns cold and gloomy with the arrival of Autumn, to make ourselves feel better and to have something to look forward to, now is a great time to start planning a holiday in the sun! After the last two years we all need one, and what better place to head to than Turkey? Only a short flight from the UK this is a country that really has it all – whether you want a family holiday playing in the pools and paddling in the sea, a romantic couple’s holiday where you can relax and unwind, or a holiday where you can explore ancient history and see things that are a little more off the beaten track.
One of the best places to base yourself in Turkey if you are looking to be able to access all sorts is Kas – a pretty seaside town that has plenty of accommodation options such as this Kas villa rental is a good choice. Here are some of the things that will be right on the doorstep…
Scuba Diving – Kas is famed for being one of the best scuba diving locations in Turkey so whether you are an experienced diver or want to try it for the first time, this is the place to be! Explore deep underwater caverns, ancient wrecks and even underwater art exhibitions which are sometimes held here. You will also have the chance to see an abundance of marine life such as turtles and explore their underwater world.
Ancient Sites – When it comes to ancient history you would struggle to beat Turkey – with thousands of years of history some of which is still intact, this is a great opportunity to go and visit some of the sites that have stood for millennia. Near to Kas you will find the Antiphellos theatre, built in 1BC this theatre was once used to seat thousands of spectators. Climb to the top of the seating and you will be rewarded with beautiful views of Kas and the sea.
Beaches – If you want to relax and enjoy the beautiful beaches of the area, then there are plenty to choose from. Kaputas beach is simply stunning. People often come here to take photographs of the idyllic surroundings. The waters are clear and blue, and the sand is white and soft – it is as close to paradise as you can get! If you are looking for a secluded beach, then head to Limanagzi bay. You can only get there by boat so it is cut off from the mainland, and you also may be lucky enough to spot one of the local Caretta Caretta – the turtles who come ashore to make nests and lay their eggs. For easy and laidback fun in the sunshine then the Kas public beach is great for you. Splash in the shallow shingle edged waters and play on the soft sand where you will find food and toilet facilities also conveniently located for the beach.
