KAS

Kas by day is a small working tourist town with a lovely little centre, offering visitors a chance to wander freely around the side streets and do a bit of retail therapy.  The colourful array of pottery, trinkets and jewellery is just typical of what you can expect.

There are plenty of harbourside cafes and restaurants too for lite refreshment. By night, Kas changes into a great place if you want to chill out and listen to good music in a relaxed environment. It has a strong Bohemian feel to it which is reflected in the intimate style bars.

KEKOVA

Kekova is a small fishing village around a 20 minute ride away and is stunningly beautiful.  A Specially Protected Area since 1990 due to its natural beauty and historic attributes, it is very popular with visitors who wish to meander around the tiny streets, walk up to the castle or spend the day relaxing on a boat where you will see the Sunken City and have chance to swim in the warm clear waters.  On the mainland of Kekova there are plenty of fine examples of sarcophagus. The Sunken City is then across the water and can only be accessed by boat or canoe. No swimming is allowed around the Sunken City.  It acquired its name from the terrible earthquake in 2nd century AD. All that remains now are the steps that go down into the waters and arches where stone houses once stood.

MEIS ISLAND

Meis Island is another local attraction within this region and is particularly popular with visitors from Kas. Meis or Kastellorizo as the Greeks call it, is a small Greek fishing village which can be seen from Kas and is 20 minutes away by catching the daily ferry. A few hours is all you need to wander around the warren of backstreets on the picture postcard Island. Explore the church and museum for the history of the Island, which has passed through the hands of the French, British and now Greeks. Then have a drink or lunch along the waters edge before heading back to Kas on the afternoon.
