Tourism Information |
The beautiful tourist resort village of Kaş, Turkey is on a hill running down to the Mediterranean Sea. The area has a typical Mediterranean climate of hot, dry summers and warm, wet winters which is ideal for growing oranges, lemons and bananas. The lowland areas are also planted with cut flowers and a variety of fruits and vegetables of which many are grown year round in greenhouses. The hillsides are excellent for producing honey and almonds while at high altitudes there are extensive pine forests. The weather is also much drier at higher altitudes and so is less humid. Although agriculture is still important tourism has become the main source of income in the district with many hotels, guest houses, bars and restaurants. The tourist season is generally between late April and continues through October. On Republic Day - October 29th, there is a huge celebration in the town square (Turkish: meydan). Tourists, Kaş locals and outlying villagers all gather in Kaş to celebrate. There is lots of Turkish music, dancing and drinking - especially rakı - pronounced: ra-kuh and also called Lions Milk which is the unofficial national drink.
