Kas was originally a small harbour town that primarily depended on fishing for trade and lively hood. After the expansion of the harbour and expanding tourism sector, this small town became a sought-after holiday destination for both those who like to relax and explore the local area as well as those who wish to sail the coastline by traditional Turkey gulet cruise.

The town offers quaint traditional and modern hotels but has maintained its traditionalist style. Throughout the town, classic craftsmen and women make jewellery and other gifts by hand from local materials. The town is quiet but perfectly located to be within driving distance of some of the famous destinations such as; Oludeniz, Fethiye, Antalya and Marmaris.

The harbour is a popular spot for many different types of cruises, including motor yachts, sailboats, and traditional gulets.

Day Tours: Sea Kayaking, Paragliding, Mountain Biking, and Canyoning are amongst the range of day tours that offer adventure and the chance to explore the region around Kas.
