The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Kalkan is located on Turkey's south west coast, between the towns of Fethiye (87km to the west) and Kas (27km to the east)
It belongs to the region of Antalya, which is also the name of its regional centre, located 200km away. Situated on Turkey’s beautiful south west Mediterranean coast, between the towns of Fethiye and Kas, the small town of Kalkan is nestled at the foot of the Taurus Mountains in a beautiful bay.
The heart of Kalkan is its Old Town, a maze of small cobbled streets winding down to the harbour. The streets are lined with many old Greek and Turkish buildings covered with bougainvillea, occupied by small boutique shops, restaurants and a few bar/cafes. Today the town is expanding out from this traditional centre, but the character of the Old Town and harbour remains unchanged.
Kalkan itself has a man made pebble beach, but is better known for its beach clubs and proximity to the famous beaches of Patara and Kaputas cove. The beach clubs are private rock bathing platforms with intimate café/restaurants, just a 5 minute water taxi ride round the bay. The waters around Kalkan bay have a Blue Flag award for cleanliness and are ideal for all forms of water sports.
Like much of Turkey, Kalkan is surrounded by historical and geographical sites. Pinara, Patara, Xanthos, Thlos and Myra cover ancient settlements from the Byzantine, Roman and Lycian periods to name but a few. The river gorge at Saklikent and famous beach at Ölü Deniz are all less than an hour away.
Above all Kalkan is most famous for its high quality but reasonably priced restaurants. With over 100 to choose from, there is something for everyone. Most popular are the roof terrace restaurants of the Old Town where you can sit and watch the sun set overlooking the sea but there is a range of restaurants to suit all budgets and tastes.
Kalkan, once the favourite summer resort for wealthy Turks has now become internationally renowned and is developing as a cosmopolitan town. The beauty of the location, the weather and the friendliness of the local people attract visitors back time and time again.
Kalkan is ideal for all types of water activities. The Bay has a Blue Flag Award for cleanliness and is ideal for a PADI diving course or learning to sail or water ski. The bay has numerous beach clubs which can be reached with complimentary water taxi services from Kalkan harbour. If you looking for sandy beaches then Kaputas and Patara beaches are close by. Kaputas with its stunning gorge location just 5 minutes drive to the east and Patara with its 18km nature reserve beach 20 minutes to the west.
Keen walkers & hikers can explore parts of the ancient Lycian Way which passes directly through the town. On Patara Beach are early morning horse riding sessions and in the summer Yoga classes are available on the sea front at Villa Mahal. Canoe kayaking and tubbing are also available on the local river dependent on the season.
Kalkan will inspire any photographer or painter with numerous photo and painting opportunities so don't forget to bring your camera and brushes. Turkish cooking classes are usually available through Guru's restaurant along with wine tasting evenings.
The next nearest town to Kalkan is Kas, a 27km / 30 min drive away. Kas is worth visiting just for the stunning scenery on the coastal road. The nearest large town is Fethiye a 50 minute drive away with its bustling market, harbour and fish restaurants.
Many historical sites are within a 45 minute drive of Kalkan including Xanthos, Tlos, Letoon, Pinara and the deserted Greek village of Kaya Koy. Other places of interest are Saklikent Gorge, and the archipelago islands of Kekova with the ancient sunken city and rock tombs. Close by are the traditional villages of Bezirgan and Islamlar set in the Taurus Mountains which give a glimpse of rural Turkish life and times gone by.
