What you should know…

  • Kalkan is set on a mountain side, and the cobbled streets are great to mooch around in the evening, they aren't great to walk along in heels so make sure you pack some flat shoes.

Villa Aylin is a short walk from Kalkan's centre; an old fishing town turned popular holiday destination on Turkey's Mediterranean coast. It's famous for its colourful boat-lined harbour and picturesque white-washed houses, draped in pretty bougainvillaea flowers descending to the sea. The majestic Taurus Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop and plenty of opportunities to go exploring.

If it's downtime you're after, Kalkan is blessed with some of the best restaurants, many on rooftops.  There's Blue Flag Kalkan Town Beach with calm crystal-clear waters that make it great for swimming and snorkelling, as well as Patara Beach, an 18km-long sandy stretch of shoreline which is also a natural park.  Look out for loggerhead turtles which nest there and birdlife. Kalkan Beach is just a two-minute walk from Kalkan harbour, while Patara beach is around 20 minutes from Kalkan by car or the local Dolmus. For a more sophisticated experience, Kalkan has many beach clubs, with food and drink service and steps into the sea.

History buffs can spend some time visiting some of the finest ruins in the region, such as the Lycian sites of Xanthos, Patara and Pinara. At the same time, if you've got a taste for adventure you can enjoy a host of watersports, quad-biking, horse-riding at sunset or take boat trips along the coast. A great boat trip will take you to the island of Kekova, with underwater ruins of Dolchiste, an ancient Lycian settlement. You could also visit serene Saklikent Gorge or wallow in a rejuvenating mud-bath at the nearby springs.

Kalkan

Kalkan has become boutique resorts, with cobbled streets and converted Greek houses, which belonged to the Greek merchants before the exchange of population in the 1920’s. Once quiet fishing harbours these days you are more likely to see traditional wooden gulets taking tourists to soak up rays on the sparkling turquoise Mediterranean. A boat trip is a must do, from the boat you can snorkel and usually a delicious lunch is prepared on board. Keen walkers should check out the Lycian way for designated walking paths in the area.

You cannot come to this area without spending  some time exploring the many Lycian sights, such as Xanthos, Patara, Myra or the sunken city of Kekova.

Patara is said to be where democracy started (they excavated stone voting block) and is also said to be the birthplace of St Nicholas, who became bishop at nearby Myra. The ruins here include an ancient theatre, city walls, government build and agora. The lighthouse on the site is said to be the earliest of its kind. Visit Patara in the late afternoon and finish the trip with a drink on the sandy beach watching the amazing sunset.

The Salikent Gorge is a great place to visit, especially if you want to cool off in the fresh waters whilst walking up the gorge. For the more energetic there are rafts and rings to ride the flowing waters. Further down you can enjoy a day canoeing toward the beach.

Islamlar sits 8 km above Kalkan. Once the place Kalkan folk went to cool off at one of the trout farms built to make use of the mountain’s springs. Today Islamlar houses many a villa, enjoyed by Istanbul Turks who prefer a holiday in slightly cooler and cleaner air. Here the locals grow grapes and pomegranates, but you’ll mainly see the men sat gossiping next to the local teahouse. The trout farms remain a place to come for a wonderful fresh meal, or a breakfast consisting of fresh local fare. The rocket will be the freshest & most tasty you’ve ever had; and the fresh chips cooked in olive oil take some beating.

By night both Kalkan and Kas come alive. Kas has more of a bohemian feel, people ambling through the cobbled streets, passing the ancient tomb in the street, haggling for textiles, carpets and other goodies, maybe stopping for the traditional Turkish ‘maras’ ice cream, a tulip-shaped glass of tea or a wonderful kebab in the shadow of the mosque. Most of the villas in Kas are just out of town on the Cukurbag Peninsula. A reasonable (5km) taxi or Dolmus (local bus) ride into town. Be sure to try the Piyaz, a white bean salad with tahini sauce.

Travelling along the coast, towards Kalkan you pass the modern marina, the children’s beach park (run by the local hotel school) and halfway to Kalkan the stunning Kaputas Beach, cut in a gorge with all different shades of turquoise in the sea.

Kalkan is a more sophisticated resort, with the villas built onto the mountainside. Evening are spent enjoying the rooftop restaurants, perched on the top of the old ‘konak’ houses. Then wandering to a seaside bar for a cocktail, after shopping for glass lanterns, Iznik pottery, handbags or pestemel towel. Do visit the ‘pastane’, local patisseries which do the most delicious morning pastries and you must try the ‘Gozleme’ pancakes at the Thursday market.

Other things to do in the area include scuba diving as the visibility is excellent, paragliding, horseriding on Patara Beach or kayaking around the sunken ruins at Kekova.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

When they are tired of the pool and table tennis at the villa, children and teenagers will find Kalkan has a lot to offer. There's a fantastic selection of watersports, including scuba diving, jet ski and snorkelling in the area. Kalkan is the perfect family-friendly destination. Kalkan has plenty of popular dive sites including intriguing caves, caverns and underwater ruins, to discover. 

There are also lots of sandy Blue Flag beaches and beach clubs that have calm waters for safe swimming and snorkelling. Kaputas Beach and Patara Beach are family favourites. The latter is rich in birdlife and is the nesting ground of the endangered loggerhead turtle – see if you can spot one!

For cultural learning, the area has lots of historic sites within a short drive, intriguing ruins that promise a great day out for children young and old. There's Tlos, one of the oldest and largest settlements or the partly submerged 2nd-century ruins near Kekova Island, to name but a few.

Thrill-seekers can go quad-biking or horse riding in the foothills of the Taurus Mountains or take one of the many options offered by the watersports suppliers. Why not booked a family day our canoeing along the Xanthos river? It's a fabulous full day out with a barbecue lunch. Another must is a boat trip, on a traditional Turkish gulet. Lunch is cooked on boar, there are sunbeds and several swim stops in the day.

Parents need no worry about taking children to restaurants, the Turks love children and will indulge them. Small portions aren't a problem. Kalkan is a place loved by children and adults alike, although if you're pushing a pushchair, the cobbled hills can be restrictive.
