Why Visit Kaş?
WHAT MAKES KAŞ SPECIAL?
Dubbed both the 'Turkish Riveria' and the "Turquoise Coast', discover the quaint seaside town of Kaş, Turkey. Peaceful but lively, the cobbled streets of Kaş are nestled at the foot of the Taurus Mountains, enjoying panoramic view of the Mediterranean stretching to the Greek island of Meis. People come from round the world to swim in the turquoise waters surrounding Kaş; and no wonder, with New York Times listing it in the Top 52 places to visit worldwide. So what exactly makes Kaş so special?
1) KAPUTAŞ BEACH
"If you could paint a picture of perfect ... this would be it"
Named in Forbes magazine as one of world's top 50 best beaches, Kaputaş is located in the cove of a deep gorge - and it's not hard to see why it was chosen. The towering limestone cliffs surrounding Kaputaş give the sand a white, powdery feel, and the clear turquoise water is great for a dip. But be warned - in high season Kaputaş can get busy, so get there early to get your spot! Kaputaş has changing facilities, a restaurant, toilets and a shower area, but parking is limited.
Just a short journey from Kaş, Kaputaş is a popular destination for our couples looking for a wedding or engagement photoshoot. Find out more here.
2) ANTIPHELLOS RUINS
The ancient cobbles of Kaş date back to the Lycian period, and many Lycian remains can still be seen dotted in and around the town. When night falls, look up into the Taurus mountains and see the Lycian remains light up. The amphitheatre, pictured above, is preserved to a high standard and offers panoramic sea views. Grab your camera, head down here and watch the spectacular crimson sunset.
Historical sites are a popular choice for our destination wedding photoshoots, as well as those couples looking for something a little 'different' for their ceremony. For more information, click here.
3) QUAINT & QUIRKY
"A cluster of old Greek fishermen’s cottages, on narrow streets around the Lycian lion tomb."
It's easy to see why Kaş was featured for its beauty in The Telegraph as a recommended travel destination. Small, cobbled streets on the seafront are nestled at the foot of the vast Taurus mountains that tower over the town. The streets are lined with with quaint, quirky, independent vendors, complimented by the Olive trees and Bougainvillea flowers gracing their shopfronts. Dubbed 'The Turkish Riveria', Kaş is a playground for Turkey's elite; Kaş has high quality resturaunts, bars, friendly locals, and an upmarket vibe.
