The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
When you do want to leave the villa, the sea is only a 2 minute stroll, with a choice of 3 beach clubs offering full water sports facilities, sun loungers for hire & bars/restaurants. Other beaches to note are Kaputas (shingle, with few amenities, but beautiful tourquoise sea) & Patara (sandy, with sun loungers & a cafe), both a short 10 to 20 minute drive away respectively. Taxis know them both, or they can be reached by the local buses (Dolmus).
Restaurants & hotels are only a few minutes walk from the villa. One of these has tennis facilities & mountain bikes for hire. A supermarket is also only a short walk away.
For a bigger selection of entertainment, Kalkan town is only 2 km away. This quaint old fishing village is situated at the foot of the beautiful Taurus mountains, on the Mediterranean coast in Turkey's historic Lycian region. It offers shops, bars, & a selection of over 100 restaurants, many of which have roof top terraces with sea views, or are at the harbour. Free wi-fi is widely available in the bars & restaurants near the villa & in Kalkan town.
Taxis are readily available and during high season a water taxi runs between the nearest beach club (Kalkan Park) and Kalkan harbour until 7.00pm or 8.00pm each day.
For the more active, it is about a 30 minute walk from the villa into Kalkan.
Organised trips can be booked through local tour operators to various historic sites such as Roman amphitheatres, sunken cities and St. Nicholas' tomb. Boat trips with lunch included can also be booked for very reasonable prices.
Car hire is readily available.
The local Thursday market is also worth a visit.
Curled into an historic harbour & overlooking a beautiful bay, this upmarket peaceful resort is ideal for a relaxing holiday. More sophisticated than the usual resort town, according to the Sunday Times, Kalakan attracts the kind of visitor who would enjoy Tuscany or the Dordogne. The Guardian likens it to "the Italian Riviera minus the poseurs."
Narrow streets twist down to the harbour, lined with old whitewashed villas with shuttered windows, situated alongside small local speciality shops & restaurants in historic buildings. Overhead hang original carved Ottoman Greek timber balconies garlanded with thick masses of brilliantly coloured Bougainvillea cascading to the streets below.
Kalkan's many excellent restaurants contribute to the town's special atmosphere. There are over 100 of them & Kalkan is said to have the highest number of restaurants and bars per inhabitant on the Turkish coast. It is especially renowned for its numerous roof terrace restaurants & bars offering wonderful views of the town & the sea.
