The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Kalkan is located on the Lycian coastline which has some of the most mountainous and dramatic landscapes in Turkey. There is a wealth of history in the region and today numerous tombs and ruins can be explored, as well as lazing on lovely beaches. An easy drive from the airport, Kalkan can be reached in 90 minutes and traditional Turkish life can be observed from the road.
Kalkan has nearly 300 days of sunshine per year, with July and August being the hottest months.
Kalkan is perfect for a relaxing holiday and has managed to avoid mass tourism. The town has a quaint historic harbour, renowned for its fresh fish, and has speciality craft and jewellery shops. The narrow streets of the old town twist down to the harbour and it is among these streets that some of the restaurants and quiet bars can be found. Behind, Kalkan is surrounded by the Taurus mountains.
Kalkan is convenient for accessing the numerous historical sites and ruins i.e. Letoon, Xanthos, Patara (where there is a beautiful beach also). Tlos, the gorge at Sakli Kent , and Kekova, the sunken city, can also be easily reached from Kalkan.
The town beach in Kalkan is small, so there are beach clubs that can be visited offering sunbeds, refreshments and some watersports nearby. Kaputas beach is set at the foot of a dramatic natural gorge. It is an internationally famous sandy swimming cove that never gets too overcrowded. Kaputas is located off the D400 and is only a 10 minute drive from Kalkan, whilst Patara ruins and beach are about a 20 minute drive. Patara Beach is a 12 km sandy beach with facilities including a cafe, sunbeds and umbrellas. A great day out for all the family!
Kalkan has over 100 restaurants and is well known for its excellent food. Roof top terrace restaurants give splendid sunset vistas and at harbour-side restaurants you can watch the boats sail in and out. Local and international menus are on offer and even in high season the town does not feel busy and has a welcoming feel. With few nightclubs, the nightlife is low key.
Kalkan also has a weekly market where fresh fruit and vegetables can be purchased from the grower, or you can haggle with one of the many sellers of clothes, gifts and handbags to hopefully get a bargain to take home!
Kalkan offers something for everyone!
Villa Iris is located in an area of Kalkan known as Kiziltas. Kiziltas is situated on the hillside looking down on Kalkan which affords excellent panoramic views of the Bay, Snake and Mouse Islands and Kalkan itself. Behind and to the side of the villa there are mountain views of the Taurus Mountains. As the road links are very good, it is convenient to travel to Kas and Fethiye where there are larger shops and weekly markets, as well as historical attractions.
