The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Kalkan is a beautiful and sophisticated bougainvillea-covered harbour village, set in a breathtaking landscape on the Turquoise Mediterranean coast of Turkey
Winding cobbled streets, colourful shops and excellent harbour-side or roof terrace restaurants and bars are combined with stunning views – whether you are looking up to the dramatic mountains behind the village, or down across the harbour to the broad sweep of the Mediterranean.
Kalkan is a small town (of only a few thousand) and this creates a wonderful intimate feeling. But don't let its size mislead you - there is plenty to do in and around Kalkan. During the day the town is surprisingly empty as most guests choose to swim or explore the multitude of beautiful ancient Lycian and natural sites of the area. However, everything changes in the evening when Kalkan bursts alive for a long, festive night. Dozens of restaurants offer a variety of excellent Mediterranean menus at very reasonable prices, often on a terrace overlooking the beautiful waters of Kalkan Bay.
Kalkan is a truly wonderful holiday destination.
Kalkan itself has a small beach but it worth travelling out to Kaputas Beach or the famous Patara Beach both of which can be reached using the regular dolmus (shared taxi / minibus) service from the town centre as well as boats from the marina.
The nearest of the two is Kaputas is a lovely sandy swimming cove nestled at the foot of a striking mountain gorge which is approximately 15 minutes drive away and offers clear waters a brilliant colour of turquoise with a beautiful coarse beach. Umbrellas can be hired here and a few enterprising locals sell snacks and beverages.
Approximately 20 minutes from Kalkan is Patara beach with its 18km of gorgeous sand. The beach is backed by dunes and is without a single building on it. However, at the end near the dolmus drop-off are a few basic restaurants to supply you with food, beverages, umbrellas and sun beds. Patara beach is closed after sunset as it is one of the few places in the world where the endangered Loggerhead turtles come to lay their eggs. Horse riding across the dunes and along the beach is available and is a lovely way to see more of Patara.
High in the mountains above Fethiye, rushing icy torrents of the Esen River have cut a narrow gorge through the mountains over thousands of years, creating Saklikent Gorge.
A natural wonder, the resulting canyon is 300m deep and 18km long and is a breathtaking sight. The walls are so high that they cut out most of the sunlight and the fresh spring waters that flow through are icy cold. Restaurants at the base of the gorge are known for their fresh-cooked trout from local hatcheries.
In summer the Turks come here to escape the heat and relax in this cool oasis.
During winter the Saklikent region is a popular resort for winter sports. In March and April you can ski in the morning and swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean in the afternoon.
