Growing up right next to the sea, I’ve always yearned for summer holidays and getting back to the coast. There’s nothing as soothing or calming like the big, vast ocean to me, which brings me to the point of this blog post. As you might already know, my boyfriend and I spent our holidays in Kas this year (read about it here). I was looking forward to getting back to Turkey as usual and we had an amazing time there. Mostly, I was looking forward to swim in beautiful, clear bays and feeling the salt on my skin after a good swim. Kas was just perfect for that, it’is one of those little, genuine places that has more to offer than it might seem at first. One of my must-do’s in Kas definitely are the daily boat trips that venture to nearby bays and villages.
At Kas Marina there are many possibilities for daily or even longer term trips. Most of the tourist boats are owned and run by local families. Me and my boyfriend found a very sympathetic family that offers daily trips to Kaleköy, a little village with ancient ruins, only accessible by the sea, a true gem. It’s about a 3-4 hours boat trip to Kaleköy including minor stops for swimming. I tell you, I’ve never swum in more beautiful bays before. We left around 10 o’clock in morning, stopped at a few bays and swam somewhere nowhere, it was a pure bliss. Around 2pm we were served a typical, homemade lunch by the captain’s wife. Later we enjoyed even more turkish hospitality through tea and cookies. Arrived in Kaleköy, we went up the hill to admire the ancient ruins of the Roman Empire and enjoy a beautiful view on the little village and the sea.
I guess the day on the boat was my favorite day of the whole week. Most importantly, the value we got for what we paid is amazing. If you’re interested, you can look up the family’s boat trip’s and offers here.
Have a lovely evening,
