The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Turkey's Mediterranean coast has an impressive 300 days of sunshine every year so you're almost guaranteed perfect cloudless skies during your summer holiday here. The season generally runs from May to October but it can be equally fabulous here in April and November. The temperature rises to the mid 40s in July and August with a more comfortable mid 30 degrees C May, June, September and October.
This area of Turkey is part of the ancient kingdom of Lycia with the Lycian Way running through it, consequently the region is stuffed with reminders of a bygone age - amphitheatres, mausoleums, ancient cities and sacred sites.
Once an old Greek fishing village called Kalamiki, Kalkan is now a vibrant resort for those searching for more than just sea and sand. Although Kalkan offers sun drenched-beaches and wonderful azure blue waters, it is rich in traditional charm and has an abundance of local ancient history.
This is an ideal destination to explore the surrounding archaeological sites, like the Lycian ruins at Patara, Letoon and Xanthos.
Just 8km away is the world famous Patara Beach - 10 miles of unspoilt golden sands in a protected and shallow bay backed by sand dunes, a pine forest and the Roman ruins of the ancient city of Patara.
Day trips include horse riding on the dunes, Kayaking, Jeep safaris, island hopping on one of Kalkans' many Gulets or a trip to Saklikent Gorge and the trout farms.

What a fantastic first visit to Turkey! The villa is lovely - everything you need, and if it isn't there Pasha will make sure you get it! A seamless transfer to and from the airport with Define Tours who we also booked all our day trips with - brilliant guys! Our Taxi driver Ayhan made it for us - picking up and collecting every morning and night as our young-ish knees couldn't manage the hills!!! Great views, great people - get on the plane and go!! Boat trips and Saklikent Gorge are must-dos, and our favourite restaurant was Chapter One - although you are really spoilt for choice as they were all lovely. Hoping to return next year with our children's friends as it is a lovely and safe resort with only one or two lively bars that stayed open till late. All in all a wonderful time! Oh and lastly but not leastly, big thanks to Kath Hill for organising everything!
