The Sparkling Aegean-Day 8- Kas

With its postcard-perfect harbour, Kaş is a favoured yacht mooring destination and one of the best places for you to head out onto the sea. 

A day on the water means laid-back sightseeing, discovering the many secret coves and islands along the coastline. 

And the town itself is crammed with cute boutiques and lovely cafés where landlubbers can chill out and shop till they drop.

While the sunken ruins around Kekova and Kaleköy are the historical highlight of a stay here, there are plenty more remnants from the Lycian, Greek and Roman eras tucked in the surrounding hilly hinterland.

 The modern town of Kaş occupies the site of ancient Antiphellos. Among its scattering of attractions from antiquity is a Lycian sarcophagus in the town centre, a well-preserved theatre on the west side of town with fine views over the bay and the remains of the ancient town walls near the harbour. There are also some Lycian rock tombs to the northeast. 

 The offshore island of Kekova is one of the most interesting attractions near Kaş. The island is famous for the underwater ruins just off its shore, known as the sunken city. The best way to get here is by a yacht cruise from Kaş, which takes you right up to the ruins so that you can peer down into the clear blue water spotting crumbled stone remnants just below the surface.
