There is no single big beach in Kas like Konyaaltı and the beaches are considered partly far from each other. That’s why it’s important to know the best beaches Kas.
Kaş, with its beaches, nature, cafes, and atmosphere, is my favorite place to spend a holiday.
Kaputas and Patara have sand beaches while other beaches have pebbles.
Kaş sea is deep but very clean. So much so that you can easily see turtles and fish while swimming.

The best beaches Kas
If you wish, let’s take a quick look at the Kas best beaches. Note that I have ordered this list from the nearest beach in the center of Kas to the furthest.
1. Small Pebble Beach (Küçük Çakıl Plajı)
Small Pebble Beach is located in the center of Kas. It takes its name from the fact that the beach is made up of pebbles and it is a very small beach.
Although the small Çakıl beach is in the center of Kaş, it may be a little difficult to find due to the private (paid) beaches on both sides.
The small pebble beach is the first beach on the Kas central coastal road.
Small Pebble Beach Prices
Small Pebble beach is free. Since the beach is small, you cannot rent sunbeds, but you can choose private beaches on both sides of the beach.
Where is Small Pebble Beach?
Küçük Çakıl Beach is just across the junction of Government Street and Likya Street in the center of Kaş. You can enter from the entrance of Çakırlar Beach.
You can go to Küçük Çakıl beach by your private car, taxi or city bus. Parking your car can be a problem as the beach street is narrow and there are hotels across it. My advice is to park your car at the first opportunity and walk to the beach.

2. Incebogaz Beach
The beach on the Çukurbağ peninsula road of Kaş is the narrowest part of the island, and for this reason, it was named İnceboğaz beach. Incebogaz beach is one of the best beaches Kas.
After Small Pebble Beach, it is the closest beach to the center of Kaş.
Actually, this beach is divided into two, as a road passes through it. One side of the beach overlooks the island of Meis, while the other side overlooks the Kaş marina.
İnceboğaz beach is the shallowest sea in Kaş and is therefore preferred by families.
Since the side of the beach facing the island of Meis is the open sea, it can sometimes be windy. I suggest you choose the side facing the marina.
It is also possible to camp on this beach.
Incebogaz Beach Prices
You can rent sun loungers and umbrellas on İnceboğaz beach or you can bring your own if you wish. If you want to rent a sunbed 75 TL, an umbrella 75 TL.
You can buy snacks and cold drinks, including beer, from the cafe on İnceboğaz beach. Prices are more affordable than on other beaches.
How to go to Incebogaz Beach?
Incebogaz Beach is one of the best beaches in Kaş and is very close to the center of Kas. Since the parking lot is large, you can easily go in your own car. It takes 5 minutes by car from Kas center.
Buses passing through the center of Kas drop you off in front of the beach. You can also walk from the center of Kaş in about 30 minutes by following the ancient theater road.

3. Kas Public Beach
The management of the beach, which is 5 minutes away from İnceboğaz beach, belongs to the Municipality and is also known as Akçegerme beach. The beach is pebbly, so I recommend you to wear slippers or sea shoes.
The sea at Kaş Public Beach is deep and very clean. The beach also has an artificial pier and it’s fun to dive into the sea from this pier.
If you have a camping chair, it will be very relaxing to sit under the trees in the greenery just behind the cafe and read a book.
I think it is one of the best beaches Kas because it is one of the quietest beaches in Kas.
Kas Public Beach Prices
Kas public beach is free. You can bring your own umbrella or sit in the municipal cafe. If you want to rent sunbeds and umbrellas, sunbeds are 75 TL and umbrellas are 75 TL.
You can buy cold drinks, including beer, and snacks at the cafe just behind the beach.

4. Hidayet Bay Beach
Hidayet bay, one of the best beaches Kas, turquoise sea color and green olive trees surrounding it add a very nice atmosphere to this place.
The bay is of medium size and although its entrance is shallow, it deepens after a few meters. The beach consists of pebbles. For this reason, it may be good to take sea shoes with you.
You can rent sunbeds and umbrellas in Hidayet Bay, but I suggest you go early in the morning and find a place because it is popular.
Hidayet Bay Beach Prices
The prices of sunbeds and umbrellas in Hidayet Bay are 200 Turkish liras, but if you buy a 200-TL meal or drink, the sunbed is free.

5. Big Pebble Beach (Büyük Çakıl Plajı)
The big pebble beach is covered with pebbles like Küçük Çakıl beach, but you will not want to leave the sea with its turquoise color, transparent and clean.
The most important feature of the beach is the cold water source in the sea. Because of this water source, the sea is really cold.
Since the beach is covered with pebbles, I recommend you wear slippers or sea shoes.
Big Pebble Beach Prices
Big Pebble Beach is free, and sun loungers and umbrellas on the beach are free. You may find it difficult to find sunbeds in the summer period due to the intensity. So you’d better go early.
How do get to Big Pebble Beach?

After continuing straight from Small Pebble Beach, you will see the Big Pebble Beach sign.

It is the most popular beach in Kas because of its turquoise sea, the closest sandy beach to Kas, and making beautiful photos for social media.

Kaputas Beach Prices
You can rent sunbeds and umbrellas for 150 Turkish Liras on Kaputaş beach. You can get snacks and cold drinks at the cafe above the beach. Only beer is sold as an alcoholic beverage.
How to go to Kaputas Beach?
Kaputas beach is on the Kas – Kalkan road and takes about 25 minutes by car. Parking can be a bit of a problem as Kaputaş is very popular and you have to leave your car on the road.
You need to go early to find both parking and sunbeds. It may be an option to go by taxi, but since there is no settlement around Kaputas, it may be difficult to find a taxi on the way back to Kaş, so I suggest you get the taxi driver’s phone number.
You can also go to Kaputaş beach by bus, but it takes about 45 minutes and can be a bit boring in hot weather.
