A more workaday destination than Kalkan, Kaş – pronounced (roughly) 'cash' – may not sport the finest beaches in the region, but it's a yachties' haven and the atmosphere of the town is wonderfully mellow. The surrounding areas are ideal for day trips by sea or scooter, and a plethora of adventure sports are on offer, in particular some excellent wreck diving.
Extending to the west of the old town is the 6km-long Çukurbağ Peninsula. At the start of it you'll find a well-preserved ancient theatre, about all that's left of ancient Antiphellos, the name of the original Lycian town here. Above the town several Lycian rock tombs in the mountain wall can be seen even at night when they are illuminated.
Lying just offshore is the geopolitical oddity of the Greek island of Meis (Kastellorizo), which can be visited.
