More information and photos are available at www.kalkanviews.co.uk Area Details Kalkan is a small fishing port and nestles in a spectacular and picturesque Mediterranean bay in South West Turkey known as the Turquoise Coast. Over the last fifteen years it has become a venue for the more selective visitor. Today Kalkan is a very special place.
The old town with its cobbled streets and old balconied houses hung with bougainvillea combines the ambience of its past, with sophisticated rooftop restaurants adorned with white linen. Eclectic and interesting small shops, specialising in leather, silver and handmade clothes add to its charm. Development in Kalkan is limited by its location in the foothills of the Taurus Mountains and the local authorities that are determined to preserve its special appeal.
The combination of the distinctive Greek architecture, brilliantly coloured bougainvillea and the famed Turkish hospitality make Kalkan a place to fall in love with. In the day, Kalkan is a place to sit at a café or bar and watch the world go by, meander around the town or relax at the beach or harbourside. At night, the town takes on a warm orange glow from the lights of over a 100 restaurants. You never need to eat at the same place twice.
Alternatively, if you are looking for some action there are many guided trips available to the nearby archaeological sites and places of interest. For example you can visit Kekova and Simena, Lycia’s famous sunken city and Crusader Castle, wade in the waters of Saklikent Gorge, Turkey’s deepest gorge or visit the famous 18km long sandy Patara beach and the local Fethiye market, or how about a day relaxing on a Gulet boat trip, visiting tiny bays to swim or snorkel in the beautiful clear blue waters before a tasty Turkish meal cooked by your host on board.
For the more active there are local sporting activities such as water-skiing, parascending, scuba diving, horse trekking, canoeing and hiking trips into the Taurus Mountains.
As Kalkan has not succumbed to mass tourism, it still retains ancient history and warm, traditional Turkish hospitality making it a very special holiday destination and the start of a lifelong romance with Kalkan.
