The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Kalkan is situated in the heart of the Lycian region in South Western Turkey which is home to many ancient sites and places of interest. These are just a few example of some of the places to see - day trips can be arranged via various agencies in the village:
Xanthos, the ancient Lycian capital, 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.
This 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.
Kekova, Ucagiz & Kale
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.
This is home to the rushing torrent of the Xanthos river, which has carved itself into the rock. With the aid of a guide and a ropeway, it is quite safe to enter the gorge if you don't mind getting wet - a great way to cool off on a scorching hot day.
The slightly bohemian town of Kas is a 30 minute drive away from Kalkan (roughly 25km). The stunning coastal road snakes its way along the edge of a rocky coastline providing truly spectacular views out to sea. It’s well worth a visit just for the journey alone! Kas itself is situated in a sweeping curved bay (the name ‘Kas’ translates as ‘curved’). It was first mentioned in Lycian times as ‘Antiphellos’ and the modern town is built on the ancient site with the ruins of Antiphellos still scattered around the town. Wandering around the winding streets, you may stumble across the ancient sarcophagus. Out of town, 500 metres along from the harbour on the Hastane Caddesi Road, sits a small well-preserved Hellenistic amphitheatre. Situated behind the amphitheatre on the top of a hill is a Doric tomb.
Many of the villages around Kalkan remain untouched by tourism and their way of life has remained unchanged for centuries. Bezirgan Village is 11km inland and has several Lycian rock tombs to explore. Islamlar is situated in a cool, green valley next to Kalkan. The village itself has a rambling collection of old houses, a beautiful mosque and an original water-powered flour mill. It’s also famous for its trout farms and restaurants (typical food on offer consists of freshly prepared local meze, fried goats cheese, local trout and fresh fruit – delicious!).
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 privately owned villas, 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. Unlike some other Turkish coastal resorts, Kalkan's main economy derives from tourism and consequently, its inhabitants put much effort and pride into the town's historic preservation. As a result of very strict building regulations and the efforts of the Kalkan Foundation, the town has retained its charm and special ambience. The wonderful hospitality of the Kalkan people is another reason why the first-time visitor invariably returns time after time.
The village shops stay open 'til around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewellery, carpets and clothing. The narrow streets of the old town are lined with whitewashed shuttered buildings festooned with brightly coloured bouganvillea intermingled with shops and terrace-topped restaurants. These streets twist down to the harbour, which is the focus of the village and here you can enjoy a meal whilst watching the world go by or by looking at the array of elegant 'gulets'.
During the day, you can make use of one of the many 'beach clubs', visit the local market (Thursday) engage in some of the local sporting activities (such as water-skiing, parascending, scuba diving, trekking etc), take a trip to one of the historical sites, drive a jeep up into the mountains, cruise on a gulet or simply relax by your pool.
A visit to nearby Patara Beach (20kms of uninterrupted golden sand) is an absolute must.
