The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region

Once occupied by the Greek Ottomans kalkan is full of character. The resort has a network of alleys winding down to the bay. These alleys reveal smart boutiques, silver and craft shops, not to mention tailors; expert in made to measure apparel.

With it's carved Ottoman balconies draped with Bougainvillea and a reputation for having the highest number of restaurants (International) and bars per inhabitant. It is one of the prettiest resorts along the Lycian coast. It is an ideal base to explore archaeological sights. Over twenty-five can be reached within two hours travel. The resort has very steep alleys, winding down to the bay.

Full of charm Kalkan is a resort that draws you back. You will be spoilt for choice for your lazy day relaxing, pursuing water sports or visiting historical and natural sites. Kalkan comes to life at night; spend an evening at an enchanting restaurant or at a more livelier music bar. Kalkan is notorious for its Rooftop terraces an ideal location for a romantic evening watching the sun go down.

Situated on Turkey's beautiful south west Mediterranean coast, between the towns of Fethiye and Kas, the small town of Kalkan is nestled at the foot of the Taurus Mountains in a beautiful bay. Kalkan itself has a man made pebble beach, but is better known for its beach clubs and proximity to the famous beaches of Patara and Kaputas cove. The beach clubs are private rock bathing platforms with intimate caf/restaurants, just a 5 minute water taxi ride round the bay.


The waters around Kalkan bay have a Blue Flag award for cleanliness and are ideal for all forms of water sports. Learn to dive at one of the diving schools or simply charter a small boat and its crew for the day.

Like much of Turkey , Kalkan is surrounded by historical and geographical sites. Pinara, Patara, Xanthos, Thlos and Myra cover ancient settlements from the Byzantine, Roman and Lycian periods to name but a few. The river gorge at Saklikent and famous beach at l Deniz are all less than an hour away.

Above all Kalkan is most famous for its high quality but reasonably priced restaurants. With over 100 to choose from, there is something for everyone. Most popular are the roof terrace restaurants of the Old Town where you can sit and watch the sun set over the sea and dine under the stars.

It is no surprise therefore, that Kalkan, once the favourite summer resort for wealthy Turks has now become internationally renowned. The beauty of the town, the weather and the friendliness of the local people attract visitors back time and time again. Ask regular Kalkan visitors and home owners alike and they will describe the moment they glimpse Kalkan from over the mountains as 'Coming Home!'

Kalkan is one of the hottest locations on the southern coast in summer and mildest in winter. Summer temperatures peak from the beginning of July into the middle of August and can reach into the 40's. From as early as March and until as late as November Kalkan enjoys day time temperatures in the 20's. From November until April the weather is less predictable, but cooler temperatures are generally accompanied with sunshine, making it an ideal time to explore the area.

The wettest period is usually January into mid February when heavy but short lived rain storms can be expected.Weather. The weather in and around Kalkan during the 'season' is dry and warm. Average temperatures are:

Kalkan

(The Home Owner has recommended some places for you to go for a visit, please see the short introductions below)

* Saklikent Gorge
High in the mountains above Fethiye, rushing icy torrents of the Esen River have cut a narrow gorge through the mountains over thousands of years, creating Saklikent Gorge. A natural wonder, the resulting canyon is 300m deep and 18km long and is a breathtaking sight.

The walls are so high that they cut out most of the sunlight and the fresh spring waters that flow through are icy cold. Restaurants at the base of the gorge are known for their fresh-cooked trout from local hatcheries.
In summer the Turks come here to escape the heat and relax in this cool oasis.

During winter the Saklikent region is a popular resort for winter sports. In March and April you can ski in the morning and swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean in the afternoon. Saklikent is about 25km northwest of Kalkan, off the N-350 to Korkuteli; 3km from the main road

*Green Lake

Green Lake is a great outing for those interested in walking in the pastures of the Taurus Mountain highlands and learning about the semi-nomadic way of life that dominates the peaks all summer-long. The brilliant Green Lake is 6,500 ft above sea level and a pilgrimage centre to which people come from every corner of the country to drink its sacred healing water. Semi-nomads live in tents near the lake with their flocks and are very hospitable to visitors. These people represent the long history of the Turkish people who migrated from central Asia.

The lake is formed by the melting snow which stays on top of the mountains until early August. It offers spectacular shots for photographers and is a cool place to visit in the summer. The area of Green Lake overlooks a stunning valley once travelled through by Alexander the Great and his troops on his Persian campaign.

* Elmali Village

Elmali is the largest Ottoman town of the south west area of Turkey, located high on a mountain plain. It is famous for its well-preserved wooden houses (some from the 17th century) in which Ottoman Turks, Greeks and Armenians once lived together until the 20th century. People here live much as they did in the past and old crafts such as blacksmithing, hand-crafting copper-ware and making Turkish Delight in the traditional way are still practised. A very large mosque complex exists in Elmali dating back to the 16th century with hand-painted tiles rivaling those in Istanbul's grand mosques.

The Elmali area is rich in archaeology and natural beauty. Some very significant antiquities including the famous Elmali Treasury have been found in the area and excavations are currently under way at a large mound where antiquities have been found dating back to the 12th century BC. Alexander the Great once marched through Elamli with his troops in 333 BC on his campaign against the Persian army. The road they used can still be seen today.

The misty peaks of the great Taurus Mountains, rushing streams and lush greenery offer excellent photo opportunities and the alpine pastures and famous cedar forests (6,000-7,000 feet) are attractive to hikers. Many semi-nomads live in the area as well, as the highlands are good, cool summer pasture for their flocks of sheep and goats.

* Kaputas Beach

Hundreds of years ago a huge chasm opened up the side of the mountain face and spilled its contents out to sea.The gorge has dried up, but what's left is Kaputas Beach. Here you'll find a place that feels like the middle of nowhere. Kaputas is a mountain gorge with a small shingle cove beach under a bridge crossing the gorge, with a steep set of steps from the road to the beach, and a steep drop off into the clear blue sea.

From here, it's just a short swim to some nearby phosphorescent caves. Kaputas is a 15-minute drive from Kalkan 6km along the road to Kas. Park your car at the top of the steps that lead down to the beach. The background picture to this site is of Kaptuas beach.

* Patara Beach

A principal harbour of ancient Lycia, Patara is reached by following a winding mountain road before descending to this important archaeological site and its beach. The site is scattered through fields across a large plain. Highlights include a triumphal arch, a theatre, two bath complexes, a temple to Athena, a granary built by Hadrian, a lighthouse and many tombs.

A boardwalk leads to Patara beach, rated as the best beach in the world by The Sunday Times, where 18km of pure white sand stretches as far as the eye can see. From May to October this is a breeding ground for turtles so the beach closes at dusk. To get to Patara, take the N-400 road towards Fethiye for 9km and follow the sign-posted turn-off; Patara is 8km from the turn-off, the beach access is about 1km further

* Olympos

Make every effort to reach these fascinating sites. Olympos was one of the important Lycian cities in the 2nd century BC but was abandoned after the Ottomans took control it the 15th century.The best part of Olympos is its tranquil setting, abundant wildlife and superb beach. The partially excavated ruins cover an extraordinary range of history.The surrounding mountains are part of the Beydaglar Olympos National Park, with good hiking.

The Chimaera is best seen at dusk. It is a natural phenomenon in which a series of flames sprout out from the hillside. They are thought to be fed by natural methane has and are named after the mythical monster that was said to inhabit these hills. According to Homer she had the head of a lion, the body of a goat and the tail of a serpent, and breathed fire.

This is a long journey so you may prefer to take an organised trip. For the more adventurous, take the coast road to Antalya for about 155km until you get to the turn-off for Kemer. The first turning off the main road leads to Chimaera, the second to Olympos.

* There are plenty of excitement in the local area, please contact the owner for further advice.

“Fabulous villa”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2012

Absolutely lovely well equipped villa in a fantastic resort. Our family absolutely loved the infinity pool which even in August was not overcrowded and at times we had to ourselves. The view from the balcony was stunning for an evening drink. The only drawback was the steep steps up to the villa. There is no handrail currently in place which was ok for us but could be problematic for families with smaller children. But that was a minor fault in an otherwise idyllic holiday thank you for letting us borrow your holiday home Debbie.

“A wonderful villa, lovely views, spotlessly clean, has everything you need”
