10 Things To Do In Kas, Kalkan and Kekova



Every trip involves a little planning. And here is a list of attractions in Kaş and Kalkan to help you decide what to do.


  1. Sailing


A holiday in Kas and Kalkan is unthinkable without getting on board a boat. The coast of the Antalya province of Turkey is one of the most beautiful places in the world along which to sail, and you can enjoy its beaches and islands on one of our weekly voyages or daily boat trips.


  1. Fishing


Say “fishing” and the majority of people think of a middle-aged angler in muddy waders. Our tours in Kaş and Kalkan, however, will prove just how glamorous fishing can be. Our Kaş – Kekova daily trip includes a stop at Yalija Bay, where you can enjoy fishing for wrasse, bonito and leer fish; all in beautiful, golden sunshine – we even provide all the equipment you’ll ever need.


  1. Swimming and snorkelling


The clear, turquoise water of the Antalya coast acts like a magnet for swimming and snorkelling enthusiasts. Indeed, the plethora of diving areas is one single reason that many people holiday in Kaş and Kalkan. Most of our day trips and all of our voyages include at least one opportunity to go snorkelling. Don’t forget, we provide the equipment, a sea scooter and underwater camera. You can even enjoy a swim by moonlight on our Full Moon Tour.


  1. Walking and hiking


Among the many attractions in Kaş and Kalkan is the sheer, simple pleasure of walking. The climate, of course, makes any walk in the area a pleasure. However, all of our tours in Kaş and Kalkan include at least one great, walking opportunity. For example, our Kaş – Antalya voyage involves an evening and night in Finike; a town filled with orange groves. Another place you will want to walk around is Gemiler Adasi or Ships Island; a place we visit on our Kaş-Fethiye-Göcek Voyage.


  1. Exploring history


Going back in time is one of the things that you will want to do on a holiday in Kaş and Kalkan. The Antalya coast is steeped in history, being the site of the ancient Lycian culture, and all of our voyages include a tour of at least one historical sight. On day five of the Kaş–Fethiye-Göcek voyage, for example, we visit Tersane Island where you can view ancient shipyards among the Byzantine ruins.


  1. Eat great food


A holiday in Kaş and Kalkan should also mean a holiday from cooking. All of our boat voyages include three meals daily, prepared by an on-board chef and made of fresh and local ingredients. Most of our daily boat tours in Kaş and Kalkan include lunch and/or a repast of fruit and tea. Of course, many of the towns that we visit feature their own restaurants serving wonderful meals of local seafood.


  1. Hunting for treasure


Tell someone that you are going on a treasure hunt and they will most likely think you a bit crazy. However, while you are on Holiday in Kaş and Kalkan, you will have the opportunity to do just that. The Kaş – Kekova voyage includes a stop at Pineforest Bay, site of the infamous pirates cave. Swimmers will have the opportunity to explore this cave where, tradition has it, that pirates hid treasure and women.


  1. Tax-free shopping


If a search of the pirates’ cave fails to net any bounty, you may want to indulge in a spot of retail therapy. Among the attractions of Kaş and Kalkan is the opportunity to go tax-free shopping. The daily boat Kaş – Kastellorizo (Megisti) tour involves a trip to the Greek island of Kastellorizo. It is a tiny island, population about 400, with a shop where you can buy souvenirs or just take a good look around.


  1. Enjoy the night life


While on holiday in Kaş and Kalkan, you might want to embark on the Full Moon Tour, for one night. It is a beautiful trip and gives you the opportunity to go swimming by moonlight. Another attraction is that you decide when you want it to finish. Of course, nightlife also includes visiting one of the wonderful bars and restaurants that are among the attractions of Kaş and Kalkan.


  1. Sunbathing


Finally, we arrive at one of the most popular of all pastimes while on holiday in Kaş and Kalkan – lapping up the sun. With our coastline and islands, there is no shortage of stunning beaches – Cleopatra Bay, Kaputaş Beach and many more, upon which to enjoy this ever-popular holiday activity.

Boat Trips in Kas, kalkan and Kekova

For the visitor on holiday on the Antalya coast of Turkey, we offer a variety of boat trips in Kaş and Kalkan. In addition to our three stunning voyages, we offer four day trips, a Full Moon tour and the Dinner Dining tour, which gives you the opportunity to dine under a starlit sky as we sail.

Kaş – Kekova Tour

This is one of our boat trips to Kekova and Simena, the “sunken city.” We depart at 9.30 in the morning and enjoy tea or coffee on our sunny deck, as we sail to Yalija Bay. Those of you who enjoy fishing can use our tackle to fish for wrasse, bonito and leer fish.

One hour later, we will all be swimming in the waters of Yalija Bay. The swimmers refreshed, we depart for Aquarium Cove; a place that is as good as it sounds. Here, the snorkelers can explore the clear, blue waters filled with interesting marine life. It’s also worth mentioning that the price of your tour includes the use of snorkels and fins, masks and goggles.

Snorkelling is hungry work and, back on deck, you can tuck into a freshly prepared lunch of kebabs and Turkish mezes. Afterwards, we set sail for the Kekova islands and Simena, really the highlight of this trip. Not only is it one of the lovelier parts of the coastline, you will have the opportunity to see the ruins of the ancient Lycian city that sank into the sea after an earthquake, over 2,000 years ago.

When we are finished touring the Kekova islands, we set sail for Kaleköy or Castleville, where you can view Roman ruins and ancient sarcophagi. Later on, we visit Üçağiz Village or “the village with three mouths,” where three rivers converge.

You can see more Roman ruins in this little fishing hamlet before we sail on to Inonu Bay. Here the swimmers will have one more opportunity to get wet before we return to Kaş Harbour.

Kaş – Islands Tour

One of our very popular boat tours in Kaş and Kalkan is the Kaş – Islands tour. We depart Kaş Harbour at 9.30 am and sail for Güvercin or Pigeon Island; a journey which takes about twenty minutes. The snorkelers among you will love the bit that comes next; a stone sculpture of a shark under the water.

Here, we remind all snorkelers that you have the use of our sea scooter and our underwater camera, since no one will want to forget this part of the trip. We spend two hours here before setting sail for the Greek island of Megisti or Kastellorizo. Here, snorkelers can delight in exploring an underwater canyon.

Back on deck, you enjoy one of our superb lunches, before setting sail for Limanağzi Koyu or Harbour Mouth’s Bay. The history lovers among you will enjoy seeing and, no doubt, photographing the ancient tombs that are carved into the mountain cliffs here.

Later, we cruise to the Büyük Cakil or Big Pebble Beach and enjoy a refreshment of fruit and tea before sailing back to Kaş harbour.

Kaş – Kastellorizo (Megisti) Tour

This tour is one of our slightly different boat trips in Kaş and Kalkan. All holders of EU passports may enter the Greek island of Kastellorizo without a prearranged visa. All other nationalities, including Turkish nationals, must have a visa for this trip.

We leave at 10am and sail for twenty minutes before arriving at Meis harbour. You can enjoy a whole day on this island, visiting its little churches and going tax-free shopping in the town. You can also say “hi” to the seals that live in its Blue Caves. And we return to Kaş harbour by 6pm.

Kaş – Kaputaş Tour

This tour is one of our very popular boat trips in Kaş and Kalkan. We leave Kaş harbour at 9.30am and sail for Maradi Island, not far from Meis. After one hour’s swimming, we sail on to Kaputaş beach, one of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in the world.

Here, you can catch fish and capture images before we sail on to the Mavi Magra or Blue Cave. Now, it is the turn of the snorkelers to have fun, before we sail on to Pigeon Island. If you haven’t done so already, you will want to dive in and take photos of the stone shark sculpture with our underwater camera – always available to you

Finally, we travel to Büyük Cakil or Big Pebble beach for a refreshment of fruit and tea before returning to Kaş harbour.
