When is the best time to visit Kas?
The hottest and busiest months in Kas are July, August, and September. If you prefer to skip the crowds and enjoy some more mild weather, May, June, October, and November are just perfect. During May and June, the days are long and the weather warm however, as the sea tends to warm up slower than the air, it may be cooler than usual during these months. During October and November however, the sea is delightfully warm and the weather is beautiful, the only downside might be the shorter fall days. The months of December, January, and February typically feature cool, rainy weather, not ideal for a beach holiday. While March and April may still be too cool for swimming and sunbathing, they are some of the best months for hiking and other outdoor pursuits.
Will traveling during Ramadan or other religious holidays affect our trip?
Since tourism is the main industry in Kas, life goes on as usual during Ramadan and other holidays. All restaurants, cafes, and bars remain open during Ramadan and the bus system runs as normal. The only effect other religious holidays, or Turkish national holidays, has on the town is the influx of local tourists. Therefore, you many have difficulty finding accommodation during these holidays so make sure to book in advance!
