The area is noted throughout Turkey for the fine array of produce which is grown here, from fresh fruits, to gorgeous honey and almonds. Many of the farmers sell their produce from their farms or by the roadside, and welcome passersby with open arms.

Kaş is also well-known for its underwater diversity. Choose one of the locally based dive centres, and let them take you to one of over 50 noted diving spots in the area, From here you can array of sea creatures, including octopus, sea turtles, and thousands of multi-coloured fish. Those who already have scuba experience can visit the wreck sites of a Second World War Plane, and a 1950s cargo ship. There are also other artificial wrecks in the area, which have been sunken to create important marine habitats. If you don’t fancy snorkelling or scuba diving, you can always just take in the stunning Kaputas Beach and cove, which is about 18km west of the town.

If you can tear yourself away from the coast, a trip up into the mountains is well worth the effort. From here, you can enjoy trekking, rock climbing, mountain biking and canyoning experiences. The sunsets are also brilliant.
