Kalkan Places to See Cheap Deals Packages Sites to Visit Tours

Strict conservation laws have ensured only sympathetic, low-rise development has taken place in and around Kalkan and the old village itself remains almost entirely untouched, with the entire region retaining a low-key charm. Surrounding villas and small boutique hotels are sensitively built into the natural terrain – (no high rise package-tour facilities here –) and blend with the overarching backdrop of pine forest and turquoise sea. Small, stylish and sophisticated Kalkan eschews popular misconceptions of Turkey: it is renowned for quality roof-terrace restaurants and beach clubs which attract a sophisticated clientele throughout the season.

The terrace restaurants afford picture-postcard views over the harbour of moored gullets and come alive at night with fine dining against a backdrop of stars, twinkling lights and soft music. By day, Kalkan’s beach clubs attract a chic crowd who spend time relaxing on waterside platforms or playing at water-sports.

In front of the villa are protected areas of mature Olive Trees, and from the house, the road leads, 150m straight down to the sea, where there is a beach club, and from where a water-taxi offers a relaxing 5 minute boat ride into the heart of Kalkan.

Many an hour can be squandered just behind the seafront wandering the small alleys and pausing to peruse high quality local ceramics, textiles and leather shops. The friendly traders take delight in striking a bargain: enter the spirit of bartering by taking a customary cup of Turkish tea on course to a purchase.

The colourful weekly market is held on Thursdays, with stall holders enthusiastically enticing visitors with their assorted wares from jewellery to clothes and electrical items. Beyond the immediate foray is a wide selection of fresh seasonal fruit, pungent local herbs and freshly gathered vegetables.
