The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
KALKAN a Mediterranean town on the beautiful Turkish Riviera sitting at the foot of the Taurus Mountains. It gently rises from the bay and can be reached on foot, by taxi boat or by taxi from Patara Prince. Kalkan is charming with brilliant blue crystal-clear sea, ancient history and warm traditional Turkish hospitality. Narrow cobbled streets, lined with many shops and boutiques wind their way down to the pretty harbour and small beach. Kalkan transforms at dusk as it begins to bustle with activity. An abundance of restaurants, many of them set on roof top terraces offer a culinary delight, with wonderful views over the bay of Kalkan.
BEACHES & ADVENTURE
PATARA BEACH with miles of golden sand features regularly in brochures as one of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful beaches. Entrance to the beach is through the ruins of the ancient city of Patara, with a triumphal gate, baths, a theatre and a few temples.
KAPUTAS a lovely sandy beach is nestled at the foot of a striking mountain gorge. The water is always a brilliant turquoise blue. Kaputas beach is about four and a half miles from Patara Prince.
KAS a town with life revolving around the town square and harbour with many restaurants and cafes to stop at and watch the world go by. It is worth noting that on the sheer rock mountain wall above the town there are a number of Lycian rock tombs, which are illuminated at night.
SCUBA DIVING - the Mediterranean with its warm, calm, tide free seas with great visibility make this area ideal.
MOUNTING TREKKING in the mountains of Lycia offers some of the most beautiful scenery in the Taurus range.
PARAGLIDING tandem or solo; take a trip to Kas where there is an excellent and well known paragliding centre.
HORSE RIDING - the ride begins at the stables in Patara and takes you along the river until you reach the beach, where you have a chance to cool off and have a swim. After this we continue our ride along the country tracks stopping for a while by a lagoon.
SAKLIKENT GORGE is the ideal place to visit if you are feeling especially hot. The gorge is 18km long and so steep and narrow that the sun does not penetrate, so the water is icy cold. The gorge is approached along a wooden boardwalk above the river and opens out to a series of wooden platforms suspended above the water, where you can buy and eat trout at one of the specialist restaurants.

Quiet location with partial sea views.Lovely patio area to sit out in the mornings early evening.Clean,stylish and well equipped.Helpful information for guests.Within easy reach of bus stop,shop and infinity pool.The resort itself is beautiful,but you need to be fit to climb the steps.We tried all three pools, our favourite was the infinity pool as it was quieter.
The owner was very helpful arranging transfers and welcome pack.Easy walk into town,along a dirt track.Only attempt when the sun goes down.We highly recommend to couples or family with one child.

Thank you to Martin and Martin for letting us stay in the lovely Palm 235 apartment.
The apartment is perfect for couples and had everything we needed to enjoy our holiday in Kalkan. It is very tastefully decorated and is very comfortable to stay in. As a young couple, we were looking for a quiet break to enjoy each other's company and relax. Palm 235 was the perfect place for us! It is very good value for money so we would definitely rebook Palm 235 in the future and would happily recommend it to others.
Martin was very helpful when organising our holiday. He organised the transfer to Kalkan from Dalaman airport and back again. Everything went smoothly, ensuring a stress-free start and end to our holiday! It was lovely to meet Martin and Martin, it is clear that they are both passionate about ensuring that their guests have a lovely stay in their apartment. As they live in Turkey, they were able to offer hands-on assistance and advice which was great.
This was our second stay at the Patara Prince Resort. The shuttle bus around the resort is an absolute life saver, especially as the heat regularly exceeded 40 degrees during our week stay. The 3 pools are lovely; the infinity pool is the nearest to the apartment at the top of the resort and it tended to be very quiet. The rest of the resort is clean and tidy and very picturesque. Some of the staff around the resort are charming, however on the whole I found them to be disappointing and were not always entirely helpful.
We only ate at the resort twice and found that the food at restaurants in Kalkan offered more choice and was of a much better quality. Taxis into Kalkan are expensive at 15 Turkish Lira so the shuttle boat was a cheaper and much more scenic alternative, although it stops running at 7pm. There is a small supermarket close to the apartment which offes the basics, however it is expensive and shopping at the larger supermarkets in Kalkan is much cheaper.
Thanks again to Martin and Martin - we shall look forward to staying in Palm 235 again in the future!

We've just returned from a week in Kalkan at Patara Prince and it really was a lovely place to stay and perfect for us.
The apartment had everything we needed, plus Martin organised a welcome pack for us so that we were sorted at least for 1 night and breakfast the next morning, plus all essentials like tea/coffee/juice/water etc.
The apartment itself is ideal for 2 people, and was lovely and bright with a view of the sea (although there are other properties blocking the view somewhat but just to be able to see the sea is a treat coming from London) and a lovely terrace where we spent most of our time when at the apartment.
There is a good little supermarket a 2 min walk from the apartment that is well stocked and sells fresh bread and humus too.
Patara Prince itself has 3 pools (the top pool was pretty much empty the day we were there and has a great infinity pool with lovely views) and access to the sea. We only ate lunch at the hotel resort on 2 days (1st & last) and I wouldn't recommend it. The food was not very good and compared to the food we had the rest of the time in Kalkan, really unsatisfactory. We enjoyed a drink at the adult pool bar overlooking the sea and watching the boats come in though.
Be warned, it is a very steep climb back up to the apartment from the pools - we counted 460 steps, although this was our only exercise all week! There is a shuttle bus, although we always seemed to miss it and be too inpatient to wait for another. Also, the boat service to Kalkan apparently only runs until 7pm in the evening, which was too early for us to get so we ended up walking which takes about 15 mins and we got to watch the sunset as we went. Taxis to & from Patara Prince are very expensive (15 TYR, about £5) considering it only takes 3 minutes.
I would recommend the apartment to all my friends, and also Kalkan too. I wish I was back there!
