Kas Harbour by night
Explore the bustling fishing town of Kas
The Kas Peninsula is a wonderful setting for a holiday: the views across the blue sea to the Greek island of Meis are spectacular and the land slopes down to the rocky coastline where swimming platforms let you plunge straight into the crystal clear water.
Kas is perhaps a little like the ‘big brother’ of Kalkan. Like Kalkan, it has an attractive harbour and winding cobbled streets climbing a hillside, it has a slightly bohemian feel, attracting a range of visitors of different nationalities and ages. The town has a wonderful selection of shops and restaurants, many with charming roof terraces with views over the square and harbour front.
The town has two beaches, Big Pebble Beach and Little Pebble Beach. More beaches may be visited by taking one of the water-taxis from the harbour to the other side of the bay (about fifteen minutes each way). The dramatically positioned sandy gorge of Kaputas is well worth a visit and can be reached in about twenty minutes by car or local bus (dolmus).
Kas is also a diver’s delight and is renowned for the being one of the best diving spots in the Mediterranean. there are also many other activities available such as kayaking, gulet trips and walking in the dramatic scenery of the Taurus Mountains, not to mention the abundance of ancient historical sites waiting to be explored.
Discerning Collection are proud to feature 3 beautiful hotels on the stunning Cukurbag Peninsula, around 15 minutes drive from the heart of the old town of Kas. All of which boast magical views over the glittering Mediterranean, an ideal choice for those looking for a remote seaside escape with excellent service.
More recently, we have also introduced some pretty fabulous private villas, the Peninsula Villas I, II and III which are ideally located close to the luxury Peninsula Gardens Hotel, and guests at the villa are more than welcome to use the fabulous facilities of the hotel. Plus slightly closer to Kas itself, the intimate Alley Prime Hotel, with just 15 beautiful rooms and suites.
