Located on the Turquoise Coast of Turkey and with the soaring Taurus Mountains as a backdrop, lies the
postcard pretty village of Kalkan. Set in the centre of the ancient Lycian Kingdom this simple fishing village has retained much of its character.
The ancient sites of Xanthos, Letoon, Pinar, Tlos, and Patara are within easy reach of Kalkan. Slightly further are Kekova, Demre, Myra, Phaselis, Olympos and Aspendos.
Driving up into the mountains behind Kalkan and travelling throughout stunning scenery, you will come across a fertile plain that was once a prehistoric lake. Amongst the fields and orchards is the village of Bezirgan where you will find the REAL Turkey along with several Lycian rock tombs. Islamlar is also a lovely drive not far up the mountain from Kalkan and is famous for its trout farms.
Although Kalkan has its own shingle beach next to the harbour, there are a number of beach clubs around Kalkan bay. Set in stunning surroundings these clubs are rock platforms and terraces cut into the hillside at the waters edge with the lower terraces having steps into the sea. They are on a number of levels so it never gets too crowded.
Sun loungers and parasols are provided as well as showers and WCs. All beach clubs provide a first class drinks and bar service as well as excellent restaurants.
You can swim, snorkle and fish and for the more adventurous watersports are available for a small local charge. Access to beach clubs can be either walking, water taxi, car and some offer a free taxi or minibus service to and from your accommodation.
Steps lead down from Seafront apartment to the exclusive boutique hotel Villa Mahal and the waters edge where you can enjoy Villa Mahal's beach club facilities, restaurants or take the taxi boat directly across to Kalkan.
The dramatic Kaputas beach is a 5 minute journey from Kalkan where its beautiful sandy beach is found at the foot of a revine down many steps.
Patara Beach in approximately 20 minutes and is of pure sand and dunes stretching 12 miles. Entrance to the beach is through the ruins of the ancient city. Development is banned and it is home to the protected loggerhead turtles which lay their eggs on the beach.
90 minute transfer from Dalaman airport. You are 20 minutes walk into town. You can catch taxis back from town for 16TL. It's also nice to rent your own car to visit the surrounding villages and beaches.
