Delightfully situated among towering vertical cliffs, Kas is the region’s second major resort, and although lacking in idyllic stretches of beach, the dramatic rocky coastline creates easy access to clear and unpolluted Mediterranean waters; and an abundance of outdoor activities, and a lively nightlife have maintained its reputation as a satisfying sailing holiday destination in Turkey. Kas is the centre for glass-bottomed boat trips to the sunken cities around Kekova Island from where remains of mysterious civilisations can be viewed just below the surface of the water, and visits can be arranged to the surrounding archaeological sites at Demre, Myra and the Xanthos Valley. The town is built around the remains of ancient Antiphellos, and there are ruins of a Hellenistic theatre, the monumental Lion Tomb, and some hillside rock tombs in and around the town. Despite the tourist development of what was once a simple fishing village, Kas still preserves its small-town charm, with narrow cobbled streets and novel boutique shops.
Kas is another place to do shopping and banking needs during your “blue cruise” sailing charter along this part of Turkish coast called "Turquoise Coast". The yacht harbour of Kas is protected by a breakwater against the winds blowing from the west and southwest and at the end of the harbour there is a lighthouse. There would be no problem in entering the yacht harbour where your needs such as water, diesel oil and ice can be met. The yacht harbour of Kas with latitudinal position 36 degrees 12'58" north and longitudinal position 29 degrees 40'30" east, is in the extreme South of Turkey and therefore the climate there is lukewarm even in winter. The electricity used at the harbour is of 220 volts and communications are made by means of the coastal wireless station. The call-sign is TAC-2 and it is transmitted through 16 channels. Shops have been opened owing to the development of tourism and shopping can be done easily in them. The food eaten in the restaurants at the coast is also very good and leaves pleasant memories. In addition to these, since Kas is an administrative district, the needs concerning services such as P.T.T.,(Mail-Telegraph-Telephone) pharmacy, dentistry and medical services can also be met. It is possible to spend the night at the Harbour of Bayindir in the vicinity of Kas too. Entry into the harbour must be made carefully because of the rocks in front of Ince Burun where a lighthouse is located. The space in front of the rocky beach in the southeast end of the harbour is the safest place of anchorage. Since the southeast direction is a shallow and rocky sandbank, the sailing vessels must not come alongside too near there and they must be tied up in the southwest direction. Of course this suggestion are if you choose a bareboat charter along Turkish coast, but if you choose a “blue voyage” on one of our luxury gullets you will not have to think about nothing, just take sun, swim, relax and of course taste the Turkish dishes.
