Kas was built adjoining a long, narrow peninsula, over the ancient port city of Antiphellos (port of Phellos), and was noted for its cork oaks. In 1839, it was so tiny and impoverished that the English archaeologist Charles Fellow (who excavated the nearby Lycian site of Xantos) had to cross to the island of Castellorizo to buy chickens to eat. Today, the situation is reserved: the islanders buy their chickens at Kas market on Fridays. The harbours are filled with scuba-diving boats and yachts making trips to the Blue Cave and the sunken city at Kekova with hotels and pensions along the waterfront. Uzun Çarşı, the shopping street, has many unusual and original handicraft and antique shops. A 5th-century BC Lycian sarcophagus is at the top of the street.
