Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Turtle View is a luxury 2 bedroom apartment in an exceptional location with stunning unobstructed views over Kalkan, its islands and bay. It is part of the old Eagles Nest Hotel which has now been converted into beautiful apartments. It is situated directly above the Villa Mahal boutique hotel with steps taking you down to Mahal and the waters edge. Here you can enjoy Mahal's beach club facilities, restaurants or take the taxi boat directly across to Kalkan.
The huge terrace with surround panorama (no roof top views here) is west facing. It is partially covered to allow some shade from the midday sun. Here you can dine or simply relax in your own private jacuzzi. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting with a glass of wine or Efes (local beer) listening to the put, put of the small boats, seeing the gulets returning to the harbour and then having dinner as the sun sets over the bay and the Kalkan lights begin to twinkle as the dusk falls. All very, very romantic.

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.
Although Kalkan has its 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 waters edge with the lower terraces having steps into the sea. They are on a number of levels so it never
gets too crowded.
Sun loungers and parasols are provided as well as showers and WCs. All beach clubs provide a first class
drinks and bar service as well as excellent restaurants.
You can swim, snorkle and fish and for the more adventurous watersports are available for a small local
charge. Access to beach clubs can be either walking, water taxi, car and some offer a free taxi or minibus
service to and from your accommodation.
Steps lead down from Turtle View to the exclusive boutique hotel Villa Mahal and the waters edge where you can enjoy Villa Mahal's beach club facilities, restaurants or take the taxi boat directly across to Kalkan.
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.
Peaceful Kalkan’s narrow winding streets lead gently down the hillside to the town’s yacht-filled harbour and pebbled shorefront. A wide choice of restaurants, upmarket shops and bars in the centre flanked by beautiful Greek and Ottoman architecture give the town an air of grace and affluence.
Villas and apartments with scenic sea views nestle in the mountainside above Kalkan’s traditional whitewashed, balconied houses. This charming old town is still a fishing village at heart so restrictions on new development mean that nightlife is suitably low-key.
Transport links are good. Unspoilt villages and historic sites are just a short drive away and it’s just under a two hour journey on the coastal highway to Dalaman Airport, which lies 150km south-east. With popular beaches at Patara and Kaputas also within easy reach and water sports aplenty, Kalkan is a highly popular and attractive destination for anyone looking for a truly wonderful holiday.
