I  have a transfer organized with you, how will I recognize the driver ?

What is the best time to visit Kas?
May and June is a great time to visit Kas, the weather is nice, and Kas won’t be as crowded as in July, August and September. It won’t be as hot as well.

Beware though that the pool and sea temperature can still be a bit chilly early in the season.

Late September, October and early November are also very nice, the weather is still quite warm, the sea temperature is still warm but as winter is slowly coming days are shorter.

For more information about the weather and sea temperature, please check these websites:

We plan to come to Kas during Ramadan or religious festivals, will it affect our holidays?
No, tourism is the main industry in Kas. Therefore, all restaurants, bars and shops will be open as usual.

If you come during the religious festivals (Turkey’s public holidays), Kas might be a bit more crowded than usual as it is also very popular with local tourists but shops and restaurants will be open. Only banks and public institutions like the post office etc. will be closed for those days.

Dolmuses (minibuses) will run as usual.

We are planning to do a boat tour while we’ll be in Kas, can you give us more information?
We can help you organize any type of boat tour (including the sunken city of Kekova) or any other excursion or day trip.
There is no need to book in advance, a phone call the day before will be enough notice in high season.

Early in the season or in late summer, travel agencies require a minimum of participants, so there is no guarantee that the trip can be organized on a particular day, though we will try our best to organize it.

Here is the typical itinerary for the boat tour to Kekova:

  • Transportation from the hotel at 09:45 a.m.
  • A short drive to Uçagiz village (40 min.)
  • Board on the boat and start cruising
  • Swim breaks in the turquoise blue waters of the Mediterranean
  • Explore the world famous Sunken City by glass bottom boat
  • Lunch on the boat
  • Visit Simena’s Crusader castle with dominant views of Kekova
  • Return to Uçagiz village and drive back to Kas
  • Back at the hotel at about 18:00 or 18:30

Please note that all excursions require a whole day. There is no half-day tour.
Prices vary slightly every year.

What is the best way to reach your hotel from Antalya airport / Dalaman airport?

We don’t have our own beach but the closest swimming platform (there are no real beaches in Kas centre) is just 50 meters away from our hotel.

In Kas, all swimming platforms are open to anyone. They provide sunbeds, umbrellas, changing rooms, showers and access to the water with a ladder. They are free but all of them ask you not to bring your own food and drinks and they expect you to have a drink / snack from their restaurants.

How far are you from the city centre?
Kas is quite small so everything is within walking distance.

We are about 5 minutes walk to the city centre, maybe a little bit more from the city centre to the hotel as the hotel is up the hill. Have a look at the map on this website.
