Paragliding and air sports in Kas
Kas was originally called Habesos or Habesa in the ancient language of Lycia, and later was given the name of Antiphellos. Phellos was the name of the city across Kas and was a Greek word meaning "stony place", and this name is very well suited to the area. So, because Kas was built just across Phellos, the citizens called their town as Antiphellos (across Phellos).
Antiphellos, which once was a member of the Lycian League, is known to have gained reputation and importance as a port town during the Hellenistic period around 4th century BC, sustaining its significance as one of the leading towns during the Roman period as well. During the Byzantine era, Kas was a bishop's see. Today, there are several Lycian sarcophagi around and a well preserved ancient theater in the town.

“This was an unforgettable experience. You get a really nice overview of the city and all the pilots are so kind. I did it with 3 friends and a nice little detail is you get walkie talkies to talk to each other while paragliding which we found very cool. It’s more than worth the price!!” – Jolan L.
“I had a wonderful experience with Marcos and his staff. Marcos arranged for round trip transportation from Lara Beach to the take off area. Weather could not have been better. Davut, the pilot, was extremely confident and experienced. I felt very safe with him flying. The moment of take off is simply breathtaking. If you are going to try paragliding once, do it in Kas, can’t beat the scenery.” – Magda C
