Kalkan

Kalkan Bay.jpg

Kalkan is set in one of Europe's most breath-taking, grand sweeping Mediterranean bays, with the truly majestic Taurus Mountains as a backdrop. An exquisite harbour, full of Turkish wooden gulets and small fishing craft, bordered with waterfront restaurants and the beach, is where the beautiful and historic old town area extends back from the sea. 

Formerly a Greek fishing village Kalkan is now a thriving but still unspoilt resort with the bustling historic Old Quarter being the heart of the town. After dusk, its 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.
An eclectic mix of  Greek and old Kalkan architecture, with roof terrace restaurants, and lovely views to the sea, the 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, but at every turn whitewashed and stone buildings with shuttered windows timber and balconies reveal Kalkan's history.

From Kalkan's harbour, many of the beach clubs dotted around the bay are accessed by small colourful boats that provide a complimentary service to transfer guests, and traditional wooden Gulets offer boat trips to the beaches, islands and inlets nearby. Water sports, diving and fishing trips are also offered.
