The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
This region of Turkey has the most wonderful combination of ancient and modern, where east meets west. Its facilities and attractions created for tourism blend with the concentrated number of archaeological sites of ancient civilizations. Lycians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans are some of the great peoples which have controlled and left their mark on this and other parts of Turkey.
The high pine-clad Taurus Mountains are the backdrop to a sparkling sea fringed by runs of sandy beach and irregular coastline of rocky headlands, islands and secluded coves. The green landscape, watered from the winter rains and flow from the mountains, has pine forests, olive and citrus groves and palm which mix with areas of farming and horticulture.
The region, blessed with sunshine for 300 days of the year, is a paradise for sunbathing, swimming, and sports activities like windsurfing, water skiing, sailing, mountain climbing, rafting, golf and diving.
The long holiday season that starts at the beginning of April and continues into November provides wide opportunities for a visit. Daytime temperatures vary from 20°+ (Apr and Nov) to 35°+ (July and Aug). Sea temperatures in high summer range up to 25°. Your summer holiday is unlikely to be interrupted by rain.
Such natural attractions have been a perfect base for the region's development of its wonderful and plentiful tourist facilities and services. Whatever mix you want in terms of a holiday, it is found here. Activities like yachting, watersports, paragliding, rafting, cycling, golfing and trekking abound and for the beach lovers, the choice is endless, ranging from the secluded to the boisterous, the small to the huge and deserted.
For an interesting change in tempo, look around the large number of ancient sites, cities and remains along this coastal area. Most are easily accessible and make memorable photographs.
Whatever is on your list, shopping is always well provided for, both day and night, and the famous colourful Turkish bazaars are the norm everywhere on market days. İn the evenings, there are traditional Turkish shows and dancing and many relaxing waterfront bars and cafes. The variety and freshness of the food is exceptional and restaurants cater for everyone's pocket and taste.
There' so much to enjoy, so try a holiday here and you're likely to come back.
The historic town of Kalkan is one of the most beautiful spots on the Turquoise coast of Turkey and a wonderful resort for anyone who needs calm and relaxation. Originally a small fishing village and trading port, it was home to mixed Turkish Ottoman and Greek inhabitants. Its traditional layout and building styles have generally survived to give atmospheric, narrow, traffic-free streets sloping down to the small pretty harbour.
Its locality has a healthy climate and low humidity, with sea breezes moderating the 30°-40° summer temperatures.
The town centre has more than 100 eating venues, plus quaint bars and a couple of discotheque bars which, together with the evening shopping, combine to give a nightlife which is lively but not overpowering. The wealth of restaurants offer menus of high standard and reasonable pricing, with wide choices of traditional Turkish and international dishes, super fresh fish and other sea-foods. And take a visit to the nearby inland fish farms to enjoy a wonderful eating experience in their restaurants. There is an vibrant open market on Sundays with clothes, fresh food, spice, jewellery, ceramic and leather stalls. Chemists, banks (with ATM), butchers, supermarkets and fishmongers are all in the central area
Naturally, for almost all visitors the beaches are of prime importance and for this the Kalkan district scores highly:
Kalkan main town has two beach clubs plus a sheltered pebbly beach with all equipment and nearby restaurants available. Over in the Kalamar Bay district there are two further excellent beach clubs with all water sport activities at hand. Kaputas sandy cove is 12 minutes away and the sea colour here is a feature of so many promotional photographs for this region. Patara beach, about 20 min. by bus or car is famous for another reason - it's an 18 km. long stretch of white sand, backed by sand-hills and has just one bar/restaurant as it is totally protected by law. Not surprising that the Sunday Times lists it as one of the world's best beaches.
There are quite a few tourism agencies in town which will give a rundown on all the boat trips and rentals and the many sports activities and places of interest in the area. Diving companies are set up in Kalkan harbour and there is a particularly good one in Kalamar Bay and all offer courses or accompanied dives.
In the Kalamar Bay district there are also opportunities to water-ski, jet ski and hire day boats for fishing or swimming stop-off's. Half an hour down the breathtaking coastal road is Kas, a bigger town with other offerings for shopping, boat trips, diving and paragliding. The huge and signposted coastal walk of the Lycian Way, with its extraordinary scenery, skirts around Kalkan and sections of this and many other local paths and tracks can be recommended.
More than a few ancient ruins and cities, left by the Lycian civilization, are waiting for you to discover and explore around Kalkan. Patara, Xanthos and Lettoon are within half an hour and there are 10 others less than an hour away. Book a trip to the dramatic walk and wade in the cool waters of the Saklikent Gorge; a day trip here can include a tour of various nearby ancient city remains.
The beautiful and famous Oludeniz beach and lagoon is about 45 minutes drive away near the bustling town of Fethiye, which has a great range of more extensive shopping, a lengthy harbour and bayside walk and a huge not-to-be-missed Bazaar every Tuesday. For the energetic, various river rafting pleasures are nearby and the even more adventurous can exhilarate in paragliding from the mountains above Fethiye, Oludeniz and Kas.
