Diane & John Staley Area Details A small sophisticated resort set on the Turkish Mediterranean Riviera in ancient times known as the Lycian region.
The town nestles at the foot of the Taurus Mountains and was once a small simple fishing village. Whilst the town has
maintained much of its original charm it is now one of the most up and coming resorts of this region. It consists of narrow cobbled streets which all lead to the picturesque harbour.
It has a wonderful array of restaurants where you can sample some of the finest cuisine in the world, many with roof top terraces offering a wonderful view of the harbour and the starlight night sky. Alternatively you can watch the gullets and fishing boats from one of the many harbour side restaurants. There are a few bars available in both areas for a relaxing drink at any time of the day or night.
Market day is Thursday selling a wide variety of goods including locally grown produce, particularly good value are the herbs and spices. In the town there is a wide selection of shops selling beautiful Turkish carpets, jewellery, antiques and wonderful clothing made from the finest Turkish cotton which open well into the late hours. There are also several
supermarkets some offering delivery service to your villa.
There is a small pebbled beach by the harbour and there are also beach clubs available which offer relaxing sunbathing and swimming in the warm turquoise ocean. Some of them offer water-sports such as snorkelling, scuba-diving, wind-surfing, diving, sailing, fishing and other fun activities. For the more energetic you can also take part in mountain climbing, trekking, parascending, caving and walking, all available locally.
On those days when you wish to venture away from the resort why not visit one of the abundant ancient sites from the Lycian era. Close by are Patara, Xanthos, Letoon and Tlos, or further afield are the marvellous sights of Kekova, Myra, Olympos and even Ephesus. One of our favourites for all the family is to cool down at the amazing Saklikent Gorge.
Kalkan, once visited will never be forgotten and is often re-visited, we certainly fell in love with Kalkan and itís wonderful people and we hope you will too. Travel Details Transfers from Dalaman can be arranged by car at £50 each way and by mini bus for £60 each way.
