Adventures await above & below the sea

Political dissidents were once exiled to the seaside town of Kaş—surely a pleasant surprise, as an unspoiled fishing village draped around a bay at the end of a lush green fjord is probably not what they were expecting.

Today fishermen can still be seen unloading their catch in the harbor, and the relaxed atmosphere allows for time spent in conversation in shady tea gardens. The surrounding Kekova region is full of intriguing remains of the ancient Lycian culture, with many monumental tombs carved into sheer rock faces, and Simena, a town partially submerged by earthquakes in the 2nd century.
