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 Kas (Kucuk Cakıl 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.
Little Pebble Beach Kas
This beach is as known as Little Pebble as well. 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. It is between in two private (and paid) beaches which name Derya and Cinarlar.
Little Pebble Beach is completely free. But there is no parasols or sunbeds. Just the small space on the right side of the image below.
I think this is a place where you can go for a swim in the morning before breakfast without any personal belongings, maybe just go for a swim with your beach towel, and then go back to your hotel.
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. It is one of the tiniest beaches in Kas Turkey.
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 go inside from the entrance of Cinarlar 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
One of the best family friendly swimming beaches near Kas! 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. It is also one of the very nice beaches near Kas.
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. The other side may have waves sometimes.
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. If you will go by car, you should go earlier in order to find a nice parking space.
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.

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. The beach is pebbly, so I recommend you wear slippers or seashoes.
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.
Best beach in Kas: Kas municipality public beach
I think it is one of the best beaches Kas because it is one of the quietest beaches in Kas. Also, you don’t have as much difficulty with transportation as others. I think it offers a safer environment for children compared to other places.
But since the water gets deep in a short time, it is useful to keep the children out of sight. Considering the cleanliness and clarity of the sea, it is worth it.

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. When people ask for hidden beaches near Kas, Hidayet’s Bay is the first place that comes to my mind.
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.
This place is a bit Instagrammable and romantic spot. But families can enjoy it too. Try to get there earlier in order to find a nice space for yourself.

The prices of sunbeds in Hidayet Bay are 225 Turkish liras, parasols 50 Turkish Liras, meals are around 200-300 TRY.

5. Big Pebble Beach Kas (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. Big Pebble Beach, Kas is one of the clearest beaches near Kas Turkey.
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. Be aware of the big rocks on the shore.
Not recommended for families with children. In the sea and in places that can be called very coastal, from time to time, huge rocks can appear.
Big Pebble Beach Prices
The Big Pebble Beach entrance is around 100 TL for each person. Sun loungers and umbrellas are included in the price. You may find it difficult to find sunbeds in the summer period due to the intensity. So you’d better go early.
This year, we went there with my husband and they said that if we pay 200 Turkish Liras per person, they can provide food and drink for that amount. So it was more advantageous to choose this one. At the end of the day, we paid 400 Liras for food and beverages and did not pay for sunbeds and umbrellas.
Big Pebble Beach is one of the most popular Kas Beach Turkey.
How do get to Big Pebble Beach?
Big Pebble Beach is located to the east of Kas and is 17 km away. You can go to the beach by car, taxi or on foot.
We walked on the way, but in hot weather, this is not a very good idea because you have to climb a pretty big slope. On the way back, we took a taxi.
After continuing straight from Small Pebble Beach, you will see the Big Pebble Beach sign.

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.
