Walking the Turquoise Coast Overview
Walk ancient paths around the village of Kas and explore this alluring part of Turkey's Turquoise Coast, a place of fascinating ancient sites, perfect waters and charming locals.
Discover Turkey's Turquoise Coast on an intoxicating walking tour
Discover Turkey's Turquoise Coast the best way possible - by foot. Spend days walking along coastal paths, ambling through green forests, exploring enchanting villages, witnessing ancient sites and soaking up the atmosphere of this startling region of Turkey. The warm, blue sea is as much a drawcard as the terrain, so be spoilt by the pristine Mediterranean beaches that are encountered each day. After a day's exploring, enjoy delicious Turkish cuisine and hospitality each evening as the sun sinks slowly into the sea.
What's included in this trip
Walking the Turquoise Coast SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Sunken cities, Mediterranean beaches, a whitewashed Old Town, spectacular cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere are all found in delightful Kas.
Sloping down the hillside to reach the sea, Kas is a lovely Turkish town with cobblestone streets, quiet cafes, great diving and beautiful bays and beaches.
Lying off the coast not far from Kas is the island of Kekova and its fascinating sunken city - an ancient settlement submerged in a few metres of translucent, turquoise water.
The many walking trails along the Turquoise Coast offer an enchanting mix of breathtaking scenery and ancient sites.
Renowned in Lycian times for its love of pleasure and merrymaking, the ruined city of Arycanda is one of the most impressive sights in southern Turkey.
Surrounded by fruit groves, vegetable crops, flower gardens, apiaries and pine forests, Kas's natural bounty is much more than its beaches and laidback lifestyle.
Built on the site of an ancient city, Kas has some nice historic sites including numerous rock-cut tombs and a well-preserved theatre out on the peninsula.
