Kas, Turkey

Kas is a picturesque harbour town on the aptly-named Turquoise Coast.

The town has changed from a small fishing village into a relatively well-to-do town but it's still characterful and enjoyable to explore. It's more of a locals' town than nearby Kalkan, and has a more laid-back atmosphere. There is a small beach just on the outskirts of the town, but there are numerous rocky bays or decking areas from which to swim. 

Kas also extends out onto the adjacent Çukurbaĝ Peninsula. The views from this expanse of coastline are fantastic, with endless sea stretching to the horizon, broken only by yachts and small, forested islands. 

There is plenty to do around the area, with Lycian rock tombs, an ancient underwater city close by and a variety of outdoor activities on offer, including walking and cycling. 

Taking a boat trip around the local coastline and coves is highly recommended.
