The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region

Patara Beach and it's Lycian ruins are 15km from the villa. The beautiful village of Bezirgan is located 17km from the villa and the journey provides for some amazing views.

Beaches and Beach Clubs
The Kalamar Bay Beach Club is located within a 5 to 10 minute walk of the villa and
offers sun loungers, parasols and all kinds of water activities for kids and adults.
Kalkan has a pretty, crescent shaped pebble beach in addition to several other public
beach clubs. Kaputas beach and Patara beach are easily reached by car or local mini-bus.
If you enjoy a day on the water why not take a gulet cruise from Kalkan harbor? Private charter cruises can be arranged by talking with the individual boat captains at the harbor while larger, group excursions depart from the harbor on a regular basis. Other interesting day trips include a visit to Butterfly Valley while a visit to Saklikent Gorge, followed by a traditional Ottoman-style lunch served on
cushioned platforms that overlook the streams below, is a must.
Families with Children
Kalkan is very family oriented and most restaurants can easily accommodate families
with young children. Several small playgrounds are located near the villa. A visit to the Thursday market is a wonderful family outing and is a great place to pick-up souvenirs. We recommend that families consider renting a car for part or all of their stay at the villa in order to more fully explore the area.
The sea, Kalamar Bay Beach Club and the Kalkan Dive Center are a 5 minute downhill walk from the villa, and during the summer, complimentary shuttle buses run throughout the day from the road above the villa down to the Kalamar sea front. For a small fee, the Kalamar Beach Club provides water-side sun loungers, parasols, adult and childrenâ??s water activities as well as an excellent sea-side restaurant offering Turkish and English menu choices and ice cold drinks.
CafÃ© Vita is a 5 minute walk from the villa towards Kalkan and offers wonderful Turkish and Continental breakfast, lunch and dinner options and many tourists and locals are seen reading the morning newspaper here as they enjoy their tea or coffee. A small family-run mini-market is located next to Cafe Vita selling fresh breads and everyday supplies.
The lovely village of Kalkan is only a 15 minute walk or less than 5 minutes by car from the villa, and water taxis and shuttle buses run frequently between Kalamar Bay and Kalkan during the daytime in summer. Kalkan offers many excellent and well-renowned Turkish and International restaurants, enticing shops, a picturesque
harbour and many outdoor cafes that take advantage of the incredible vistas that the village offers. Watch the sunset from the little harbour or stroll through Kalkanâ??s cobbled streets with whitewashed, shuttered Ottoman buildings â?? either way, you wonâ??t be disappointed.
