Set on the turquoise shores of Southwest Turkey you will find the quaint and enchanting town of Kalkan. Once a thriving Greek village called Kalamaki until the 1920’s, now Kalkan is a well – to – do harbourside town built into the beautiful Taurus hills, that look down to an almost perfect bay framed by the backdrop of the spectacular Taurus Mountains.
Kalkan is an eclectic mix of Greek and old Kalkan architecture, with roof terrace restaurants and lovely views to the sea, Kalkan old town is a place you will want to discover and enjoy. The Greek Orthodox Church by Kalkan’s harbour has been converted into a mosque and is the best example of Greek architecture in Kalkan, however at every turn you will still find whitewashed and stone buildings with shuttered windows and balconies which reveal Kalkan’s history.
After dusk, Kalkan’s winding streets full of traditional houses, restaurants, small boutiques and local shops with overhanging balconies teem with people as the tantalising aromas of Kalkan’s renowned cuisine entice people down to the harbour and surrounding streets.
From Kalkan’s harbour, many of the beach clubs can be found dotted around the bay are accessed by small colourful boats that provide complimentary service to transfer guests staying in Kalkan. You will also find traditional wooden Gullet’s in Kalkan’s harbour that offer boat trips to the beaches, islands, and inlets nearby. Water sports, diving and fishing trips are also offered here in Kalkan.
A touch of Kalkan’s scenery and the climate to expect.
Blue Skies, Clear Water and hours of sunshine, The climate in Kalkan is often compared to that of Southern California as you can be guaranteed sun from May to October and beyond. Kalkan’s endless warm days can be spent at your private pool, on the town beach, visiting the many beach clubs in Kalkan or enjoying a private yacht trip around the bays.
