Kaş City Guide
The small, incredibly charming fishing town of Kaş is located on the Mediterranean coast in the Antalya province of southwestern Turkey, around 378 kilometers southeast of Bodrum and around 100 kilometers southeast of Fethiye. It lies on the Teke peninsula in the stunning region that is known worldwide as the Turkish Riviera, and although the area has been inhabited since the Stone Age, the city itself was founded during the Lycian Era, around 168 BCE.
Today, Kaş is a popular tourist destination for boating and yachting enthusiasts, but it also boasts a thriving fishing industry and has managed to retain a very authentic feel. In addition, it is a popular spot for diving enthusiasts and lies only 2 kilometers from the Greek island of Kastelorizo. Also of note, the area boasts a number of other picturesque towns and villages along the coast, making it an excellent base from which to explore by sea.
