ABOUT THE AREA
If you have ever been to Kalkan you will know how special this town is. About 1.5 hours from Dalaman airport, Kalkan sits nestled around a beautiful bay with its old town home to narrow streets and traditional whitewashed shops and houses with painted balconies looking out to sea or down into the bougainvillea strewn streets.
Kalkan's pretty harbour is truly charming, with fishing boats and gulets lined up ready for the day – don't miss a gulet trip around the bay to discover some of the hidden coves. Around the harbour are some of the town's most renowned restaurants, plus cafes for a refreshing drink or to try the local specialities.
Kalkan is renowned for its restaurants, and they spread right up through the town so don't forget to explore further. We have a restaurant review book in the villa so you can read some of our favourites – and feel free to add your own!
As the coastline here is predominantly cliffs, traditional beaches are rare, however Kalkan has its own town beach which is made of pebbles and offers wonderful swimming with fresh water springs offering a cold burst now and again! There is also a fantastic choice of stylish beach clubs to choose from set around the bay. For a small charge you can enjoy a sun lounger and use of the clubs' facilities, with all of them offering a restaurant/café for lunch or refreshments, and many offering a free boat service to them from the harbour.
Over the years Kalkan has grown from a traditional fishing village into the upmarket resort it is now, spreading up the steep hill and around the coastline into Kalamar Bay – a 10 /15 minute walk from Kalkan. Kalamar is no less stunning. More peaceful than Kalkan, the bay has its own beach club which offers water skiing, a trampoline, and kayaks. The views from Kalamar are beautiful, with the area seeing a number of new luxury homes built over the last few years.
A 10 minute drive from Kalkan and you'll also find the famed beaches of Kaputas and Patara. Kaputas is known for its incredible turquoise waters and is one of the Mediterranean's most photographed beaches. Patara offers 11 miles of protected, sandy beaches where Loggerhead turtles lay their eggs. A stunning beach, backed by ancient ruins, it is a must for visitors.
The area is also renowned for its historical attractions, including Patara, Xanthos, the sunken city of Kekova, and Tlos.
If sports are your think, the area is great for divers, or try water skiing, jet skiing, mountain biking, horse riding or walk some of the famed Lycian Way. You can also enjoy spa treatments or a turkish bath to relax and unwind!
Kalkan is very, very special and we hope you'll enjoy discovering it too.
