Kastellorizo photos of Kastellorizo, Greece

Kastellorizo island, Greece at dawn from the Turkish resort of Kas at My Favourite Planet
View of the north of Kastellorizo (the red castle) at dawn from the Turkish resort of Kaş.
Gallery contents
260 pages of photos of Kastellorizo with detailed commentary.

Browsing the gallery will take you on a journey across a short stretch of Mediterranean Sea from Kaş in Turkey to the Greek island of Kastellorizo, and then on a walk around some of the sights of the island.

We enjoyed it, and we hope you do too.

Bon voyage! Or as they say in Greece, kalo taxidi!
