The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The historic town of Kalkan is situated on Turkey's gorgeous Lycian Coast and was once a simple Turkish/Greek fishing village. Today's Kalkan is quietly sophisticated and postcard pretty with a few good quality low-rise hotels and a multitude of excellent roof-top restaurants offering all manner of culinary delights, together with a good selection of of stylish and atmospheric blues and jazz bars.
The climate in Kalkan is similar to that of Southern California and the sea water temperature rarely drops below 16°c allowing a bathing season of around 9 months. The resort also benefits from the 'Meltem' - a seasonal wind which brings a welcome breeze to the scorching summer afternoons!
Average temperatures are as follows:
Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct
20°c 24°c 28°c 31°c 32°c 29°c 26°c
Xanthos was the ancient Lycian capital, which was was buried under an earthquake and is still being excavated. You will see a magnificent amphitheatre, several monuments and the ruins of a large church with some clearly visible coloured mosaics.
Letoon was an important religious centre for Lycian people and has remains of temples to Leto, Artemis and Apollo. It also has an amphitheatre and the remains of many buildings.
A day trip to Kekova, Ucagiz and Kale could be the highlight of your stay in the Lycian region. Usually reached by boat from Kalkan or nearby Kas, this little bit of the coast is full of history and surprises. A typical day trip will include the sites of three ancient cities - Aperlae, Teimiussa and Simena (Kale). The island of Kekova will probably be the next stop on the itinerary and here you will be able to see the remains of buildings beneath your boat. A couple of swimming/snorkelling stops are usually scheduled also.
