Easter 2011 I went to the town of Kas in Turkey for 2 weeks.
Kas is on the med coast in the province of Antalya. We flew into Dalaman airport and it took us about 2 ½ hours to get to Kas. You can also fly to Antalya which is about the same distance the other side of Kas.
We approached Kas from a turn off (Attaturk Boulevard) from the main coast road D400. This turn off road quite a steep downhill to the small bay of Kas.
Our hotel the Aqua Princess was right at the end of the bay just before the beginning of the walk to big pebble beach which I described in an earlier review. There is also a beach called small pebble beach in the centre of Kas .
Kas has many hotels and guest houses it also has a camp site. http://hotels.lonelyplanet.com/turkey/kas-r1976019/ has a good selection of places to stay on its website.
Kas is not somewhere to visit if you want sandy beaches to dig in and make sandcastles. The beaches are stony and pebbly no sand some of the hotels have built decking over the rocky edge over the sea. There are several of these “swimming platforms” over the sea Kalkan is the nearest place with a sandy beach or go to the gorge of Kaputas.
There are several boat trips available from Kas. The Greek island of Megisti /Kastelorizo/Meis Adasi (Turkish and Greek name) is only about 2k away.
Walking around the harbour I noticed there were adverts for snorkelling or diving lessons. My bro in law tells me it is a well known coast for good diving.
If you want night life then there are several cafes hotels where music is available see http://www.virtualtourist.com/travel/Middle_East/Turkey/Antalya_Ili/Kas-1835053/Nightlife-Kas-TG-C-1.htmlThere are a lot of steep hilly roads and paths in and around Kas so I would not recommend it to an elderly or a disabled person.
