Location & area
This beautiful and sophisticated bougainvillea-covered harbour village is set in a breathtaking landscape in the heart of the old Lycian region. The ancient sites of Xanthos, Letoon, Pinara, Tlos and Patara are all close by, with Kekova, Demre, Myra, Phaselis, Olympos and Aspendos slightly further away, but all easily accessible.
Strict conservation laws have ensured that the heart of the village retains an authentic ambience. Winding cobbled streets, colourful local shops and excellent harbour-side or roof terrace restaurants and bars are combined with stunning views - whether you are looking up to the dramatic mountains behind the village, or down across the harbour to the broad sweep of the Mediterranean.
The many roof terraces are a highlight of the evenings, a time when Kalkan is at her significant best. You can dine by candlelight to the strains of jazz or classical music whilst admiring the beautiful views across the tiled rooftops to the harbour and out to sea - a truly unforgettable experience.
The standard of dining in Kalkan is a wonderful surprise. With restaurant ownership shared between locals and Turks from Istanbul, a wider variation of Mediterranean cuisine is offered than perhaps might be expected from a Turkish village of this size. Certainly, the range and style of cuisine on offer exceeds what is generally available throughout coastal Turkey.
Due to the type of visitor that Kalkan attracts there have been continuing gastronomic improvements, especially at the higher end of the market. This has resulted in an eclectic selection of restaurants that provide good value for all tastes.
Swimming opportunities abound. The village pebble beach has been carefully and attractively extended. There are stunning beaches in the immediate vicinity, with Patara Beach being one. Patara is a 20-minute journey, and is regularly featured as one of the Mediterranean's most beautiful and undiscovered beaches. Comprising eighteen kilometres of sand without a single building. (Except one restaurant on the beach which is open all day and has all the facilities needed to spend the whole day at the beach).
The dramatic Kaputas beach is a 5 minute journey from Kalkan. It is a beautiful sandy beach found at the foot of a ravine down many steps.
Several beach clubs complete the swimming options available in Kalkan. Accessible by water taxi, taxi or on foot, these clubs are much more than simply platforms cut into the cliff side - they provide a scenically stunning setting and a peaceful haven in which to relax by the water's edge listening to the sounds of the sea and, occasionally, tasteful background music.
The swimming at the beach clubs is fabulous, with access steps leading directly from the rocks into the clear clean waters of the bay, some parts of which are freshened by several natural underground springs. Most of the clubs also provide water sports for the more active.
With so much of interest in the surrounding regions and the village itself, Kalkan is a destination that encourages guests to return time and time again. Whether your interests are historical, cultural, or you just wish for the most relaxing holiday in the most beautiful, Kalkan is sure to satisfy.
Kalkan has managed to retain that most elusive of mixtures - an authentic ambience with the relative sophistication that makes it an unusual, charming, picturesque and uniquely welcoming destination.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
