Although the path is beautiful at any season, the wind of the winter and the heat of the summer make the spring an ideal time to walk around. You could spend a wonderful day on this short part of the Lycian Way.
Head east from Kaş centrum, follow the Big Pebble road and enter the neighbourhood. Take the left from the mosque and head straight on. As the path changes from cobblestone to dirt, you will see the red&white stripes of the Lycian Way. Take this road and follow the signs through the way. X marks are to remind that you have gone off the path. At the beginning of the road, you will see a labyrinth of shrubs and weirdly shaped rocks.
1 km after you have first seen the path markings, the road splits and you have a choice to make. There are two options to Limanağzı. The right path is shorter and offers better views. On the road, there are caves and Lycian tombs yet at the last phase, you should climb down from a steep rock. There is a rope already bolted in the rocks. Not such of a big deal of course, yet if the ground is too slippery from yesterday’s rain or if you are afraid of height or having problems with the balance, you might want to take the second path.
For the long road, take the left at the junction and follow the Lycian Way signs. If you give a little attention around the pathway as you walk, you could see a sarcophagus, abandoned little settlements, a cistern, remainings of an old olive press and maginifcent olive trees. The ruins which you will see on the red path is the remainings of a Byzantine fort. You would have seen the sea again by now so continue towards the beach. It is quite a view to see Kaş from the final point of view.
When you reach the shore, there will be the sea which is hard to resist waiting for you. Thus, have your swimwear in your backpack ready. The cafes around the cove has cabins, toilets, restaurants, bars, lounges, hammocks etc. Limanağzı cove is home to many sea turtles, therefore you could expect to see some of them while sitting on the shore or swimming. Nothing to fear of unless you try to disturb them.
We have another tip for the adventurous readers who are not yet too tired of walking. As you catch your breath at the beach, don’t get too comfortable and hit the road upwards to find the geological wonder of ‘Hıdırellez Cave’. The structure of the cave looks like a scene from LOTR where Gollum is hiding.
If you do not wish to walk back, wait for the shuttle boats. It takes 10 liras and 10 minutes to the Kaş harbour.
