A Sunset Lover in Kaş
Love of Sunset in Kaş
Kaş days and evenings are beautiful. Just like every being is unique, so is every day and every evening. That’s why I cannot set down and choose between the two. But in the meantime, I feel like to write only the sunsets. Any other evening you watch a sunset at any place, you will never watch it again. When you are in Kaş, you can see incredible sunsets either from the shore or from the sea. As I many times fall in love with this particular town at all hours of the day and night, feel the same at every sunset, too.
Sunset at Dejavu Bar, Kaş
The oldest and the timeless bar Dejavu is one of the popular places to watch the sunset in Kaş. It faces the old harbour and the Greek island Kastellorizo. Most of the tourists and as well the local people come to this kind of sunset balcony not to miss the breathtaking views of the sunset and Kaş. But it is almost impossible to find a table at these hours. I believe that you would like to get drunk, stay standing with a glass of beer or any other drink you prefer in your hand. Don’t get me wrong, I mean getting drunk with the view of the sunset appearing in a variety of colours like red, yellow or even pink and purple shades. You will forget yourself when you see the sea in flames because of the sunset colours seen on the water by reflection.
Sunset Romanticism in Kaş
Sunsets in Kaş steal both you and me away. Those few moments only between you and the sun make anybody dream or remember the memories forgotten and left behind. And sometimes you only make of the most now as the sunset turns everything into beauty with the magnificence of the lights.
Sunset Views from Ancient Antiphellos Theatre,Kaş
Sunsets do not last for long but they do come often and the Ancient Theatre is one of the sunset lovers’ favourite location. It is a special feeling to sit there entranced by the sunset’s magical beauty. It is a good idea to buy a bottle of wine from the supermarket on your way and even a wine glass to make the moment perfect. You swing towards the Hellenistic Ancient Theatre located near the sea, among the olive trees with the beautiful view of the town centre on the left and Kastellorizo island in front, rocky hills behind. You must step to the top stair, approximately 25-26 stairs, to appreciate the spectacular views around.
Sunset Corner of Kaş
You are at the right place now to watch the sunset where the sun greets you from a far, to paint the gradually paling face of the day in colours again. After a while, it slowly fades into the horizon. I should tell you not to be late. Otherwise, you will miss the chance of sitting at the top right corner, the best spot of the theatre for the gorgeous sunsets.
You should never forget that the sunset shows do not appear only on the lovely summer days of Kaş. Beautiful Spring and Winter evenings, especially with the skies full of dancing dramatic clouds, will show you the colours of the sunset may you did not know to exist. Sunsets inspire you like a poet or a writer. During these mild spring or winter evenings, you may prefer to wear something warm, to drink a glass of coffee ready in your thermos bottle, or a bottle of cognac to warm yourself inside while the breeze blows your hair gently. You sit and lean your back on the ancient stones and start dreaming.
Sunset through an Ancient Window
The official records tell that Ancient Antiphellos Theatre which dates back to 1st century B.C. is capable of hosting approximately 4000 people. Who knows who sat down on these steps before you and me, what did they think, what did they dream, who remembered the memories, who inspired hope and happiness or felt sad. Maybe some practised to become a poet momentarily or some read romantic poems to live only for the glamour of the moment.
More Sunset Spots in Kaş
It is worth mentioning that wherever you watch the sunset in Kaş, none of them will be less fulfilling your feelings than the other. No matter you watch it at the marina sitting on the grass, or you watch it at the harbour on the rocks by the breakwater, or you watch it from the viewing spot on the new Antalya road, or from İzne with a bird’s -eye view, or from the edge of Çukurbağ Peninsula above the sea, or from the helicopter pad, or from Big Pebble Beach, or from a balcony, with a stunning view, of a FidoRento holiday home as the last example for now but not the least 🙂
Sailing into Sunset
After mentioning many places for spectacular sunsets in Kaş, it is time to talk about the joy of a sunset on a sailing boat. It brings tranquillity to your heart. You feel yourself in the other world just like everyone else, as the boat sails slowly and as the waves gently rocking the boat. Looking at the colourful sky and seeing the speechless sunset makes you smile. A boat trip will let you capture the most colourful sunsets of the Mediterranean Sea. You can join these boat trips, for really a romantic evening, at the harbour. You can chill out, eat and drink and even swim around the boat and admire the sunset more.
Nothing can prevent Kas from being enshrined in my heart
What alternative place you choose for the sunset ritual, never effects the taste of wonderful sunset experience in your life. You want this magical moment lasts forever. And most probably you will postpone anything you have planned to do, at every single sunset.
Undoubtedly, all the alternatives I have talked about strongly deserve to be experienced. Let’s get on a ’Streetcar Named Desire’ to start a ’never-ending journey’ for the truly fantastic Kaş sunsets. If you are lucky enough, may Kas skies welcome you with the sunset colours like a robin bird at your arrival.
