Islamlar is in the foothills of the Taurus Mountains, yet close to local restaurants, and just 15 minutes by car from Kalkan and the coast. This incredibly beautiful area offers a compelling combination of a peaceful, utterly unspoilt location with breathtaking views and the convenience of being close to Kalkan.

The area has several trout farm restaurants where water runs down the mountains in fast flowing streams and trout are raised on the premises, so they are always fresh (though they do serve a range of other meals also). Prices are lower than at the tourist resorts and there are wonderful views down the valley to the sea.

Notably, Islamlar is several degrees centigrade cooler than at sea level, and Kalkan locals use the restaurants as respite from the warmest summer days.
