The nearby "sunken city" of '''Kekova''' (which you are not allowed to stop over) is a great daytrip that usually includes a stop in the lovely village of Simena for lunch. '''Bougainville Travel''' [http://bougainville-turkey.com/] also offers sea kayaking at Kekova (60 TL/person, including transfer from Kaş). Plenty of other companies offer a similar trip, usually starting at 65 TL but easily negotiated if you say another travel company is offering it for 60 and you look like you are about to leave. Dolce Vita Travel (located next to the tourism info center) and two other companies offer a joint trip every day in the high season, albeit a bit impersonally led, to Kekova and Simena. Fun, plenty of rest time, good buffet lunch (drinks extra, so bring water), but did have that cattle-herding feel even though group sizes are usually around 10-16 people.

'''Dragoman Outdoor''' [http://www.dragoman-turkey.com] offers a longer version - their Kekova West sea kayaking trip allows you to explore more silent parts of Kekova Sound and islands, and combines paddling, hiking to Aperlai, and kayak sailing (135 TL/person - 45 Euros).

On Republic Day (October 29th), there is a huge celebration in the town square (''meydan''). Tourists, Kaş locals and outlying villagers all come together to celebrate. There is lots of Turkish music, dancing and drinking of alcohol, especially ''rakı'' (pronounced ''ra-kuh'', also called "Lions milk"), the unofficial national drink.
