The town nestles on the foot of the Taurus mountains and was once a small fishing village, it is now a charming holiday resort consisting of cobbled streets, housing interesting shops selling jewellery, carpets and local goods. One can enjoy bartering with the shopkeepers and their hospitality offering of apple tea.
Kalkan is one of the most unspoilt resorts on the Mediterranean coast. Retaining the charm and character of a Turkish fishing village, with winding cobbled streets, lined with local craft, antique and clothes shops. There is an air of relaxed sophistication reflected in the hospitality, fabulous harbour side and rooftop restaurants offering the highest quality traditional cuisine, which is sure to delight even the most discerning palette.

The Area: Kalkan has a small pebble beach located at the very end of the harbour.
There are several ‘Beach Clubs’ these are platforms which are built into the sea. They provide sun beds for a small charge and have bar and restaurant. They are located at :
Kalamar Beach Club (this has water sports including ringo’s, banana’s, water skiing, jet ski’s, snorkelling etc. You can ring for a free transfer, but have to pay for sun beds)
Yacht Beach Club, located at the harbour
Likya, Mahal and Patara Beach Clubs are a water taxi ride away from the harbour.
Hire a skippered boat for the day from the harbour (approximately £15 a head including lunch). For a 4 to 8 berth we found the Muddy Boat & Sunset most enjoyabler.
