A decent theater, with a great view!

Just a short walk from downtown Kas this theater is worth the effort. The theater is average compared to others in the region but the location and view is magnificent.

A short walk down a quiet street just outside of town, this well preserved amphitheatre is a jewel..

It's a small, well kept amphitheatre a short walk from town. Apparently there are concerts here - that must be amazing! A nice view but nothing if you have seen other ruins etc.

The theater was my finish line for morning run, and hitting the road, stretching with amazing view and thinking about ancient times, and life during those days were like a detox to my soul...experience sun rise from the top row and you'll understand me...

It is one of the nicest Lycian ruines in this area. It is located on a very central area and it has a great view to the sea. If you are around Kas, i recommend to visit there as well.

The amphitheatre is not as spectacular as many in Turkey, but the setting is. Go there with a glass of wine at sunset and watch the view. It is a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle of Kas.

Situated a short ten minute walk from the centre of Kas, this is a lovely place to visit for sunset. Its a beautiful setting with great views out to the sea. Its fully exposed so avoid during the heat of the day.

We took an early morning walk to the amphitheater and were well rewarded with the peace and solitude the place exudes. Lovely fresh morning views of Meis/Kastellorizo/Megisti, but if one just stops and does a time-warp back through the ages, lovely becomes magically and privileged! I must however, mention the 'restorations' - these detract from the attraction quite dramatically. Should... More

If you are going to come here, make it so at sunset time, and bring wine and a picnic. The theater in itself is nothing special - it has been heavily restored, which I guess means it is better conserved but its charm is a bit lost. But the setting and the view are amazing - especially with that special... More

We regularly cruise along the Turquoise Coast and have the opportunity to explore ruins everywhere. This theatre is well preserved and has a nice view (especially at sunset), but isn't one of the more spectacular places to visit during a Mediterranean holiday. It's relatively small and there are no visible placards explaining the history or significance of the site. I... More
