MEIS ISLAND TOUR
It is Meis in Turkish, Megisti in Greek and Kastellorizo in European languages. It has three different names yet the island is quite tiny. If you have Schengen visa, take the ferry and in 20 minutes you are on the island which could be walked in a couple of hours. It is delightful to wander around the colorful houses on the shore facing Kaş. Although being a ‘not-so-popular’ Greek island among many others, the way its inhabitants care for their beautiful homes invoke some jealousy. The restaurants on the coastline offer you a variety of classic Greek delicacies from frappe to sea food. If you do not know English, that is ok as well, because they also know Turkish enough to get your order. If you are unprepared you could as well pay with Turkish Lira. And you could use your mobile phone and internet just as you do in Kaş. Citizens of Meis love Turks, it is in fact hard to find two shores of a kind having such good neighborly relations. If you do not have a visa but still wish to go, a visa on the border gate is available. Please ask the hotel management for more information.

The place welcomes every visitor in Kaş.
