It is part of a much bigger hike route called the Lycian Way. You don’t have to be an expert to get up the mountain.

Meis is an island of Greece and is just a 20-minute boat trip from Kas. Which makes it perfect for a day-trip. While we didn’t have the time to go there, we highly recommend you to do so.

Paragliding is popular along the whole turquoise coastline of Turkey. We did this ourselves in Fethiye. Kas is, like Fethiye, a popular place to tandem run of a mountain. While this isn’t a thing for everyone, we highly recommend to do it. The feeling of just floating through the air and the view is an experience you won’t forget that quickly.
