On a day trip from Kas we thought we’d mooch upto the Castle for a look. Climb the steps and then the ladder and get a beautiful view over the town, out to sea and over Turkey. Worth a trek.

First time to this island. Lovely place to visit. Bit of history if you want a break from Sun bathing.

Great walk from the town along the coastal path. Stopped off to swim along the way. Walked as far as the petrol station and then walked upto the castle. Great views and many interesting buildings and churches.

Beautiful island located near to turkey. There's some shops and restaurants , and you can go to the blue cave it takes about 30 min in the boat . The view inside the blue cave is wonderful.
