Need a summer holiday? Set your course for Kaş

The touristic district of Kaş in southern Turkey's Antalya has one of the best beaches in the country with its clear sea and green nature. The town is not as crowded and noisy as Muğla's Bodrum and İzmir's Çeşme. As a result, after spending their holiday here visitors often don't want to return to the daily rush of big cities. This is why it is said once you visit Kaş, you will want to return to this haven over and over again.

Perfect for all ages

Kaş is a tourist destination suitable for people of all ages where everyone can make lifelong memories. You can sip coffee at a quiet cafe, enjoy the summer at beautiful beaches or go out after dark for an entertaining night.

Where to stay?

There are many options for accommodation in Kaş. If you like camping, you are in luck. There are designated camping areas all over the district. The camping areas, however, have common appliances and bathrooms.

The second option is a hotel. While some hotels are in the city center, others are on the coastline. You can also rent flats.

What about the sea?

The Kaş coastline stretches 70 kilometers. The beaches bordering cliffs are generally covered by pebbles, so be sure to take sea shoes with you. If you want to swim in the bays surrounded by mountains, Hidayet Bay, Kaputaj Beach, Limanağzı and Büyük Çakıl would be great choices for you. Aside from private beaches, there are also public beaches, which are affordable and offer good services.

Authentic nightlife
