We took the bus to Kas (pronounced Kash), and walked from the dolmas (bus station) to the budget hotel we had booked for 3 nights. By budget I mean, no hot water in the early morning, no TV, no phone ect. Kas was a very touristy town, however; we were there before the tourist season started so things were a little slow to say the least. Many of the places recommended in our Lonely Planet were in fact not open for the season yet, and choosing a decent restaurant was a little daunting. Luckily for us most of the shops were open, and the town houses many, many, jewelry stores, all specializing in sterling silver. I bought a nice pair of silver earrings, 2 rings, and a beautiful set of Turkish towels.
We took the ferry 30 minutes across the water to the Greek island of Meis for part of the day. The town of Meis is quite small, so we ate a delicious Greek lunch, and walked up the hills overlooking the town before taking the ferry back to Kas.
From Kas we took the bus further down the coast to the larger city of Fethiye.
