The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region

This region of Turkey is steeped in ancient history and consequently, there are numerous ancient sites to visit as well as plenty of other places of interest - these are just a few of the options open to you:

BEACHES:

Kalkan is protected from ‘mass tourism’, by its lack of obvious beaches - although the village pebble beach (next to the harbour) has now been attractively extended by the Kalkan Foundation. Luckily for those of us that frequent Kalkan, we know that the local beaches are stunning.

Kaputas Beach

A dolmus (local bus) from the village centre takes ten minutes to reach Kaputas Beach, a lovely sand and pebble beach dramatically positioned at the foot of a huge ravine – though be warned about the many steps! (please note that there are no sunbeds and parasols for hire on Kaputas Beach).

Patara Beach

Slightly further a field, though well worth the dolmus ride (20-30 minutes), is Patara Beach. Its 12 miles of golden sand is home to protected turtles and it has been described as one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in all of Turkey. Entrance to the beach is through the ruins of the ancient city and if you come by car, you’ll need to pay a small entrance fee. Sunbeds and parasols are avilable for hire and there is a restaurant on the beach with toilet and shower facilities.

Beach Clubs

Beach Clubs abound and are easily accessible. These are rock gardens cut into the hillside offering sunbathing, swimming, water-sports, restaurant and bar facilities, together with a wonderful ambience in stunning settings. Kalamar Beach Club is situated in Kalamar Bay and the Yali Beach Club is accessible via free taxi service. Sun loungers and parasols are available for rent.

PLACES OF INTEREST:

Kas

The more bohemian town of Kas is a 30 minute drive away from Kalkan. 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.

Local Villages

Many of the villages around Kalkan remain untouched by tourism and their way of life has remained unchanged for centuries. Berzigan 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!).

Saklikent Gorge

Home to the rushing torrent of the Xanthos River which has carved itself deep into the rock. With an expert guide and a ropeway, it is quite safe to enter the gorge (if you don't mind getting wet). Very refreshing on a scorching hot day!

Tlos

Tlos is one of the most important historical sites of Lycia. You can walk right up to, and inside, the ancient tombs and fortifications, and enjoy magnificent views across many miles of countryside.

Xanthos

Xanthos, the ancient Lycian capital, was buried after an earthquake and is still being excavated from Roman and Byzantine times. You will see a magnificent amphitheatre, several monuments and the ruins of a large church with some clearly visible coloured mosaics.

Letoon

Letoon was an important religious centre for the 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 Lycia region. Usually reached by boat from Kalkan or Kas, this little bit of the coast is full of surprises and history. A typical trip will take in the sites of three ancient cities, Aperlae, Teimiussa and Simena (Kale). The island of Kekova will probably be your next stop. Again you'll see the remains of buildings and walls beneath your boat, and, depending on the knowledge of your guide, various bits and pieces will be pointed out to you. You'll no doubt stop a couple of times for swimming and snorkelling.

ACTIVE PURSUITS:

Scuba Diving

The waters off Kalkan provide some of the best venues for scuba diving along the Mediterranean. The Kalkan Dive Centre is situated in Kalamar Bay should you wish to organise a dive.

Watersports

For watersports enthusiasts, Kalkan offers a wide array of activities, including water-skiing, ringos, jet-skiing and bananas. These activities are available from most of the previously mentioned Beach Clubs.

Canoeing

Canoeing along the Xanthos River is an exhilarating way to spend the day. A typical day tour usually includes a stop at a mud bath, lunch and a few hours at Patara Beach.

Walking

The lush green countryside, fertile plains and rolling hills that surround Kalkan are perfect for long walks. There are a series of well-known trails to explore and the area also boasts a diverse array of wildlife (storks, eagles, tortoises and snakes to name a few).

Other options open to you, include Jeep Safari’s, Parascending or Horse Riding.

Kalkan

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, a selection of privately owned holiday villas 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 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 bougainvillea 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, 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.

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.
