Location description from owner

The 'jewel in the crown' of Turkey's mediterranean coastline, Kalkan is often described at the St Tropez / Puerto Banus / Tuscany of South West Turkey with its stylish ambience.Its upmarket feel is immediately apparent as you stroll down its winding streets or sit at a harbourside restaurant and watch the latest super yacht arrive and moor in the bay. It attracts a sophisticated, discerning clientele who return time and time again to experience and enjoy the magic of Kalkan.

There is something very special about Kalkan, and in many ways it is undefinable - but it is special. The world's most seasoned travellers arrive in Kalkan and immediately fall in love with its gentle charm and beauty....and many of them never move on. Kalkan isn't a place you come to only once. One visit is enough to begin a lifelong romance with Kalkan. Most visitors to Kalkan come back time and time again. And its easy to see why! Kalkan is little short of idyllic!

Nestled round a sheltered natural harbour at the foot of the majestic Taurus Mountains, Kalkan overlooks a bay of breathtaking natural beauty.Restaurants and bars look out onto a clear azure sea, punctuated by a scattering of boats and an
unspoilt coast. The town itself is charming. A jumble of age-old white washed villas with shuttered windows, their balconies garlanded with tumbling bougainvillea,
line the narrow streets as they twist down to the harbour – a dazzling reminder of Kalkan's Ottoman heritage. In the historic heart of the old town, specialist shops jostle alongside bars and restaurants in a colourful mosaic. Here good dining is a way of life and as the sun goes down the town's many rooftop and harbourside restaurants serve up a mouth-watering selection of fresh Turkish and international cuisine, in what has become a relaxed nightly ritual

By day, Kalkan is the perfect place to indulge in a leisurely spot of shopping. More sophisticated than neighbouring towns and villages, it boasts many top –notch, yet affordable boutiques offering carpets, kilims, jewellery, glass leather and clothing. And for real bargains there is always Kalkan's Thursday market! Traditional hammams and barber shops provide a relaxing way of whiling away the hours.

Restaurants and Bars
Kalkan is renowned for its restaurants and bars. The figure changes every year, but rumour has it that there are in excess of 200 restaurants here. So there is something to support every taste and budget. World class food, exquisite glass and tableware, all served by attentive friendly staff is very much the norm in Kalkan, and whether you choose one of the long established harbourside establishments or choose one of the many roof terraces you are guaranteed a truly spectacular view and a great meal. All of the restaurants serve international and local Turkish dishes.In the old town there is a proliferation of roof terrace restaurants, which enable you to look down on the sun setting over the harbour and the twinkling lights of the town. Roof terraces have a romance of their own and provide an idyllic setting for a special evening.

Islamlar Village, a short drive up into the hills surrounding Kalkan has an array of restaurants serving freshwater trout from their own pools. Enjoy a staggering array of meze before enjoying the freshest fish you will have ever tasted

There is something about sipping an ice cold Efes or a chilled glass of wine on a hot
summers day that cannot be rivalled. Or perhaps you can be persuaded to try the local tipple– Rak?, a strong aniseed flavoured drink that the locals will try to convince you, has great health benefits. We're not too sure about that one! But whichever way you look at it,Kalkan has an endless variety of bars catering for all ages.

Whether you visit the old town during the day or night you will be drawn into the many shops that line the narrow streets. Don't be surprised to be offered çay (turkish tea) or even a glass of wine whilst you decide on your purchases.There are numerous gift shops selling anything from spices to the ceramics and glassware that is so typical of the area. For the ladies, you will find it hard to resist the jewellery and handbag shops. Aside from this there are many other outlets selling affordable jewelley, lights and antiques. Turkey is renowned for it carpet making so if you are interested in buying a carpet or kilim, you will not be disappointed and they will arrange customs clearance and transportation if necessary.

Kalkan Pazar – Kalkan Market
Thursday is market day in Kalkan and town can get very busy. You can't miss the market –it's on the road down in to town opposite Migros supermarket. The local market sells absolutely everything and if you can't resist a bargain then make sure you visit at least once. To the rear is a large food market, where you can sit and enjoy gözleme (Turkish flatbread /pancake) but to get to it you will have to go through the main market where you will see all sorts of 'designer' clothes, sunglasses, handbags, DVD's and perfume!

Kalkan has a number of supermarkets, many of which sell English brands alongside local brands. It is easy to stock up on your day to day shopping for food, drink and household goods at any of these.

Beaches and Beach Clubs
Kalkan is blessed with the most beautiful coastline and it has its share of nearby stunning beaches. If you are a sun-worshipper and want a change from the swimming pool then you will be spoilt for choice. There are many swimming possibilities in the area; snorkelling along the rocky coastline,lazing on soft sandy beaches, hiring a boat out to the outlying islands and hidden coves or enjoying the more sophisticated beach clubs.
Kalkan has its own small, pebbly beach that shelves quite steeply into the sea. It is popular with locals and visitors alike and has sunbeds and umberellas at a small charge. But for the more spectacular, then visits to both Kaputa? Beach and Patara Beach are a must. They are both breathtakingly beautiful in very different ways and are both a short drive from LaVanta. Nestling below a gorge, just a 10 minute drive to the East is the much photographed Kaputa? beach. Approached by a 216 step descent, its sparkling waters beckon all passers-by.

Patara is a 15 minute drive in the opposite direction. A fantastic 17 kilometre stretch of pure white sand, broken only at its furthest end by the estuary of the Esen river. You can wade out into the warm, shallow sea or play in its crashing waves. The beach provides a nesting ground for the loggerhead turtle and at certain times of year some restrictions do apply. There is a small cafe at Patara serving snack meals and drinks, making it a perfect day out. There is a small charge to enter, but if you buy a ticket it is valid all week.

Due to its rocky coastline, a number of beach clubs have been developed. All of these aregreat places to escape to to simply sit in the sun, dive into the clear blue water and enjoy along, lazy lunch. Many of the beach clubs offer a variety of watersports activities.


Places To Visit
Kalkan is in a fantastic location for visitors to experience the many cultural, natural and archaeological attractions of the region. Of course, many visitors just want to relax, but it would be a pity not to experience more of the region, immerse yourself in the culture and at the same time see some of the stunningly beautiful scenery. Whether you choose to travel independently or book a tour via our representative you will be assured a great day
Boat Trips
The harbour is home to a plethora of small, traditional sailing boats or gulets which
offer daily boat trips around Kalkan's bays and outlying islands. A fabulous, relaxing
day out and the opportunity to plunge into the clearest seas you have ever seen. Lunch is served on board and is always a treat.
A traditional Turkish bath is an experience that should not be missed. Truly relaxing you willcome out feeling both relaxed and invigorated. Most of the hammams in town also offer arange of beauty and spa treatments.
The sunken city of Kekova is a fabulous day out. The Kekova road is one of the most picturesque along the Turkish coast. After an hours drive you will arrive in Üçagiz Village where you can take a boat to see the remains of the sunken Lycian city. It is a full day of sailing and swimming in the crystal clear Mediterranean waters. The boat will provide a first class buffet lunch and then visit the Pirate Cave and a stop at Simena Village where you can see the medieval castle. It is just a very relaxing day with lots of stops for swimming and amazing unspoilt scenery
Saklikent & Tlos
Sometimes when the heat of the summer gets a little too much, Saklikent provides the perfect escape. It is Europe's second longest gorge and is truly spectacular. Once you have entered the gorge you will walk down wooden platforms until you reach the actual entrance. After wading through icy cold water, you will start your trek through the cool gorge and explore its caves, waterfalls and natural beauty. Or if you're not feeling that energetic you can relax at one of the traditional Ottoman cafes on the rivers edge, dangle your feet in the cold, refreshing water and lap up the peaceful atmosphere. For the more adventurous there is an opportunity to try your hand at rafting on the rapid flowing river

Tlos is a little further on past Saklikent, and is one of the oldest settlements in the Lycian region. The ruins are remarkably well preserved and feature an Acropolis, tombs, a stadium, theatre and public baths. Other similar ruins can be found at Pinara and Letoon.
Xanthos was the first Republic capital in the world and is one of Turkey's many UNESCO world heritage sites. Only a 10 minute drive from LaVanta, Xanthos is home to wonderfully preserved ruins, including a large amphitheatre and an abundance of tombs. The mosaic floors of ancient streets and pathways are
currently being renovated by a team of French archaeologists and it is fascinating to watch them work and uncover more and more ancient mysteries
We have already mentioned Patara in the context of its beautiful sandy beach. But within the Patara National Park is the antique city of the Lycian world. Spread over an extensive area, many of the archaeological remains at Patara were covered over by sand. But a tremendous amount of investment has lead to Patara being one of the most exciting finds in recent times. The city is slowly being 'rebuilt' and a walk through the site will give you a taste of life in times gone by.

Fethiye, an hours drive away, has its weekly market on a Tuesday and it is the biggest in the region. A bustling market with endless stalls you will always find a bargain or two. If you visit Fethiye take the time to wander along the wide tree lined promenade that runs along the sea front. And no visit to Fethiye is complete without lunch at the fish market. A working fish market, you select and buy the freshest fish and seafood, and then take it to one of the neighbouring restaurants who will cook it for you and serve it with a selection of salads and meze, all at a fraction of the price of major restaurants
Kas is the next town along the coast. Larger than Kalkan, it too has a large harbour and a brand new Marina. There are many shops and bars and whilst it has a more bohemian feel we don't think it shares Kalkan's charm. But worth a drive just to experience the stunning coast road

This is just a taste of what's on offer. Quad biking,river canoeing, horse riding and jeep safaris can all be booked via our on site representative
