Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
KALKAN SUN, KOMURLUK APARTMENTS, is situated in the peaceful, prestigious Komurluk area of Kalkan and has one of the best vantage points in Kalkan. It is very spacious, light and airy with open-plan kitchen/living area and furnished to a high standard with a mix of traditional and modern furnishings.
The 'creme de la creme' are the two private, exceptionally large interconnecting terraces which are furnished for outside living and alfresco dining. Facing south east, both terraces have uninterrupted, panoramic views over the bay, harbour and village and are bathed in sunshine from dawn 'til dusk.
The front terrace leading from the living room has sun beds, parasols and dining for six people......yet still ample space to move around!!
The side terrace leading from the master bedroom is shaded with a pergola and draped with bougainvillaea - an ideal spot for 'chilling' or a quiet read on the large sofa and chairs.
There is nothing more relaxing than watching the gulets returning from their day trips around teatime...... then later with pre-dinner drinks, watch the sea turn red as the sun sets, and as it gets dark, the lights of Kalkan begin to twinkle.
At ground level there is a communal swimming pool with sun beds and parasols, two shower and W.C. The pool terrace has ample space for sunbathing.
It is a fifteen minute leisurely stroll to the village and five minutes to Palm Beach Club in the bay below where there is a connecting water taxi to Kalkan Harbour.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Located on the Turquoise Coast of Turkey and with the soaring Taurus Mountains as a backdrop, lies the
postcard pretty village of Kalkan. Set in the centre of the ancient Lycian Kingdom this simple fishing village
has retained much of its character.
The ancient sites of Xanthos, Letoon, Pinar, Tlos, and Patara are within easy reach of Kalkan. Slightly further
are Kekova, Demre, Myra, Phaselis, Olympos and Aspendos.
Driving up into the mountains behind Kalkan and travelling throught stunning scenery, you will come across
a fertile plain that was once a prehistoric lake. Amongst the fields and orchards is the village of Bezirgan where
you will find the REAL Turkey along with several Lycian rock tombs. Islamlar is also a lovely drive not far
up the mountain from Kalkan and is famous for its trout farms.
The dramatic Kaputas beach is a 5 minute journey from Kalkan where its beautiful sandy beach is found
at the foot of a revine down many steps.
Patara Beach in approximately 20 minutes and is of pure sand and dunes stretching 12 miles. Entrance
to the beach is through the ruins of the ancient city. Development is banned and it is home to the
protected loggerhead turtles which lay their eggs on the beach.
Kas, a 30 minute drive away from Kalkan is worth a visit just for the journey alone! The road clings to the
edge of the coastal road providing spectacular views out to sea. It was built on the ancient site of Amtiphellos
and ruins can still be seen scattered around the town. A small well preserved Hellenistic amphitheatre
still remains just along from the harbour and situated behind the amphitheatre on top of a hill is a Doric
tomb. This attractive harbour town is more cosmopolitan than Kalkan and has many shops,restaurants
Fethiye is the largest working town in the region with a bustling market and casbah style shopping area in the
old town. A variety of restaurants and bars overlook the marina where daily boat trips will take you around the
bay and its twelve islands. Carved into the limestone cliffs behind the town you will find rock tombs dating back to 4th Century BC.
Olu Deniz has a stunning beach and lagoon which you will always see in Turkish brochures. It has a lovely
traffic free promenade lined with cafe/bars, shops and is still popular with backpackers coming for the
paragliding. For the experience of a lifetime try a paragliding jump in tandem with a qualified instructor. As
you leave the 2000 metre high mountain you will find yourself soaring above the bay taking in the breathtaking
view of the lagoon before gently gliding down to the beach.
As a result of strict building regulations in the old town Kalkan has retained its charm and special ambience.
Walking down the narrow alleyways you will find yourself in a maze of old whitewashed houses with rickety
wooden balconies overhanging with flowering plants and brilliant bougainvillaea.
As you wind down the alleyways you end up in the quaint harbour where beautiful traditional gulets and luxury yachts moor up for the evening. Diving, fishing, scuba diving, caneoing and whitewater rafting can all be booked from the harbour. You can sole charter a gulet which will take you to secluded bays which are inaccessible by road.
Although Kalkan has it's own shingle beach next to the harbour, there are a number of beach clubs around Kalkan Bay. Set in stunning surroundings, these clubs are rock platforms and terraces cut into the hillside at the water's edge with the lower terraces having steps in the sea. They are on a number of levels so it never gets too crowded. Sunloungers and parasols are provided as well as showers and WCs. They all provide a first class drinks and bar service as well as having excellent restaurants. Free Water taxis are provided to and from the village
For the gentlemen a visit to a local barber is a must for that legendary shave. Also a trip to one of the upmarket
hotels will enable you to experience a traditional Turkish bath and massage.
At the centre of Kalkan is a taxi rank and a dolmus(mini bus) stop, which offers a regular service to
Fethiye, Kas and mountain villages. There are five banks with ATMs, a Post Office and several supermarkets which offer free delivery of shopping to your accommodation.
Wandering round the Aladdin's caves that line the steep narrow alleyways, you will find little carpet bazaars
and traditional jewellery shops where lovely pieces are made to measure in gold, silver, amber and turquoise.
You can even design a piece yourself.
Kalkan is full of exquisite boutiques and colourful local craft shops that sell ceramics, glassware and hand
made cushion covers. On hot days while browsing round a shop don't be surprised if a friendly shop owner
offers you a cool drink or a traditional apple tea.
A market is also held every Thursday where anything from 'designer' t-shirts, jeans, spices and hand made
linen can be bought.
The array of types of places to eat in Kalkan can be quite bewildering with over a hundred restaurants to
choose from. They offer all manner of culinary delights, some on roof terraces, down alleyways or on the
harbour front. There is a good selection of stylish and atmospheric blues and jazz bars which stay open
till the early hours.
Komurluk is to the east of Kalkan village within a ten to fifteen minute stroll along the Kas road. It is a very peaceful. prestigious area with exclusive luxury villas and apartments, all having breathtaking, uninterrupted views over the bay and harbour. Palm Beach Club is tucked in the rocks below with bathing platform, secluded sunbathing areas, ottomman sitting areas, restaurant and bar. Watersports are available as well as free watertaxis to and from beach clubs to the village for guests.
Put these things together and include the wonderful hospitality of its people, its no wonder first-time visitors
are finding themselves coming back time after time.
