Kaş (which means eyebrown) is one of the most beautiful little towns on the Turkish Mediterranean coast. It is located on the southern tip of the Teke Peninsula (Ancient Lycia once called the ‘Land of Light’ ) which stretches between Antalya and Fethiye , directly opposite the Greek island, Meis.
Most of Lycia is in the Toros Mountains, some peaks are over 3000 m high and topped with snow until may. The southern part of the peninsula is characterised by a sharp range of limestone mountains through which various rivers cut their way down to the Mediterranean.
The lowlands and great alluvial deltas enjoy a Mediterranean climate with mild winters, and hot , dry summers. Above a height of 1000 m cedar and juniper forests prosper whereas lower down the hills are mostly covered by pine and oak. Along the coastline with it is pebble and sand beaches one finds a great variety of native plants and animals. Kaş can be reached via two international airports, Antalya (about 200km) and Dalaman (160km) or by domestic coach services from all major Turkish cities. From the airports you will either be transferred by your tour operator or continue by bus, dolmuş, taxi or rent a car.
