Kastellorizo island is also known as Megisti or Meis island. According to historical references, it was called Kizilhisar in Turkish and Megisti during the Ottoman age. Meaning “eye” in Greek, Meis island is situated directly across from Kaş (Antalya).
The only settlement on the island is Kastellorizo and it was named after the crimson rocks on the island by the Knights of St. John (Knights Hospitaller). The name has been slightly altered over the years and now means crimson castle. The island has about 400 inhabitants and there is a church, museum and fortress worth exploring.
