Kaş is home to dozens of accommodations throughout this buzzing beach town including boutique hotels, pensions, and apartments. But when there’s so much to choose from, it can be hard to decide. Important aspects you must consider are location, cleanliness, Wi-Fi, and amenities. Because of this, we’ve come up with a list to help you navigate accommodations in Kaş. Each accommodation has its own perks which make them unique, catering to different things you may be looking for.
Some small hotels and pensions are in the town center, within walking distance of everything. The larger hotels tend to be farther from the center, requiring transport in many cases. The hotels on the Çukurbağ Peninsula, jutting into the Mediterranean, have particularly good positions for panoramic views of Meis Adası/Megisti. They usually have some way of reaching the sea, usually steps and swimming platforms, for those times when the hotel's swimming pool seems too tame. But their position on Çukurbağ means that you are at the mercy of public transport if you don't have your own vehicle.
