There are watersports available in the area, such as; canoeing,jet-skiing, diving and paragliding, plus cavern diving, which uses technical equipment to explore the deep and dark caverns. For those who love travelling on the water, the Mavi Yolculuk (Blue Voyage) tours, and other excursions on boats, can be made to the surrounding islands.

History
_______________________________________

Habesos is the earliest known name of the ancient city, as proved from archaeological findings. But the name Antiphellos is far more familiar, and this was the harbour of ancient Phellos. Excavations here have revealed a settlement dating back to the 4th century BC, possibly earlier, although it reached its height of importance during the Roman and Byzantine periods, when it was a centre for Bishops. It had also been significant in the world of sea-faring commerce, and during the Roman era wasespecially famous for its exported sponges.

It was attacked by Arabs, then added to the territory of the Anatolian Seljuks, and took the name Andifli. After the destruction of the Anatolian Seljuk state, the Ottomans added it to its lands.
The name Kas means ‘eyebrow’, or ‘something curved’,describing the shape of the town under the backdrop of 500m high cliffs behind.

Climate
Summers are hot and dry in Kas, quite typical of Mediterranean region, and the temperature can reach around 35 degrees during the day. Winters are warm during the day although can get cool at night, and can drop below 10 degrees.

How to Get By Road
Kas is accessible from Fethiye or Antalya. If coming from Ankara direction, it is much quicker to take the route through Elmali and Gombe, rather than the Antalya coastal route. There are services to Istanbul (12 hours), Antalya (4 hours), and Fethiye (2½ hours), and dolmuses (mini-busses) make the shorter journeys to the beaches of Patara, Kalkan and Kaputas.
