    Perfect lunch served with charm.
    We took the boat across from the harbour but you can drive or take a taxi.
    Very peaceful. No booming music!

    Three generations of us descends on the Beach Club.

    The staff were great great at making sure all was ok. The was a canoe, pedalo which were free to use and a great raft/trampoline for the kids to swim to and play on.

    Even better, they were able to pick us up from our hard-to-find villa and return us when we were ready.

    Well worth a visit, with written documentation of the interesting history of the Lycian ruins here. On-going restoration at the site.

    I believe this was artificially created, but works very well, in an area with few proper beaches. Parasols and loungers can be hired for 10TL per item per day the water is crystal clear but shelves quite steeply. There is a café/takeaway at the end of the beach and plenty of seafront/harbour side cafés and restaurants within a minute’s walk. If you like laying on the beach, hire a lounger and you could do a lot worse. If you want a swim in the sea you could also do a lot worse and all amenities are close.

    One of the best beach clubs in Kalkan but on the pricy side. Go ahead and splurge, at least once during your visit. May be worth it.

    We've been visiting Mahal for years and it was our favourite beach club in Kalkan. I know many people complain about the service but we never minded that. After all, it is a place with so many steps and I can understand that it is hard for the staff to run up and down in the summer heat all the time, so no problem, we can tolerate slower service. The setting of the place and the views are unbeatable, the privacy and serenity you have on the sunbahting platrosm are all great, I still love those. However over the years it gradually became too expensive for what you get and this year the prices became so ridiculous that we stopped visiting altogether. Especially during a season when the usual British guests couldn't visit due to COVID related travel restrictions and the place had so little customers, we felt like we were being punished for being regulars there. 70 TL for a mediocre glass of wihe, 185 TL for a portion of meatballs (in which you get only 3 meatballs by the way) and 70 TL for the sunbeds, really? Sorry Mahal, we are no longer regulars.

    We booked Sunset 2 for a birthday celebration for just the family. It was a great day out, stopped 5 times for swimming & mud bath. The lunch was fantastic - far more than we could eat. Afternoon we had a massive fresh fruit & cakes. On arrival back in port they presented us with a cake & fireworks. It cost £300 for the boat for all of us - it could take 8 people but we were just 5. Brilliant day out & thoroughly recommend .

    We went out for a private sunset cruise with Osman, his wife and daughter. We couldn’t fault any detail. The swim in the sea was lovely, the bbq food was wonderful (and so much of it!!) Osman and his family were great hosts.
    We even saw dolphins!
    What a fabulous evening

    I have now been twice and enjoyed both massages immensely - probably comparable to one I had in Istanbul.

    We had the best day ever out on Sea Bella! A family run boat with really friendly crew who look after you. The boat itself is huge with plenty of places to chill out in the shade and the sun. Lunch was great, even for me and my daughters, who are veggie and vegan. Great swimming spots and even an opportunity for a mud bath. Or you can just relax on the boat. An absolute dream of a day!

    A really lovely day trip. The boat was perfect with lots of room for sitting or lying down in sun and shade. Lots of stops to swim which were beautiful. Lunch time food was delicious as was the fruit tea and cake in the afternoon. No blasting music which was great 😀 staff were very nice. Would highly recommend and will go again.
