The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Kalkan is a small, peaceful Mediterranean resort and fishing village. It is more sophisticated than the usual resort and has not been touched by mass tourism. Sheltered at the foot of the towering Taurus Mountains, Kalkan curls round an ancient harbour. The town overlooks a beautiful bay, dotted with small islands. Narrow streets twist down to the harbour, lined with white washed, shuttered buildings draped with brightly coloured bougainvillea. There are many speciality shops and excellent restaurants, often with roof terraces overlooking the harbour. Because of its great charm, Kalkan has a growing number of perennial visitors who say the town is the only holiday destination they would choose to visit repeatedly. There is simply no other town quite like Kalkan along Turkey's coast.
Kalkan benefits from an average of 300 days sunshine a year and the day time temperature over the winter months can reach the mid 20sC and seldom falls below 15C. The hottest months are July and August when temperatures reach the high 30sC. A gentle breeze in the afternoons helps to keep temperatures at a comfortable level, alternatively if it gets too hot, just dip in one of the two Emir pools or the sea where the temperature is generally 26C.
There are many places to visit within a short distance of Kalkan with local tour operators offering boat trips and tours at reasonable prices.
Try a "Lazy Day at Sea" on one of the impressive gulets where you will visit many beaches and coves including the beautiful Kaputas beach, eat lunch on board and swim in the clear turquoise waters of the Mediterranian coast as often as you wish.
The sunken City at Kekova, which was devastated by a series of earth quakes, provides an opportunity to see from glass bottom boats the remains of a previous civilisation.
