“Kaş (pronounced ‘Kash’) is a small unspoiled fishing, diving, yachting and tourist town, and a district of Antalya Province of Turkey.
It has a hellenistic theatre & other places of historical interest; spots of natural beauty, excellent beaches and interesting caves, some of them underwater.
The mountains behind the coast offer trekking, climbing and canyoning and ruins of antique cities of Komba (in the village of Gömbe), Nisa, Kandyba, Phellos, Istlada, Apollonia, Isinda and Kyaenai.
A popular excursion from Kaş is Kekova Island. Here you will see a surprising variety of wrecks of ancient ships and ancient cities sunk under the sea by earthquakes over the centuries. The sea is so perfectly clear that the details of city buildings such as staircases or columns can be seen from the boat.
The area is ideal for sea kayaking. In December 2006 Kaş was added to the specially protected Kekova marine area in order to preserve its rich biodiversity.”
