By car less than an hour, its only about 30KM

By Coach about an hour, by Dolmus maybe 90 minutes.

Lovely road with great views.

20 mins if you drive yourself - voted one of the top drives in the world according to the sunday times - don't forget to stop and look at Kaputas beach on the way - it is a spectacularly beautiful drive!

About 30 minutes by dolmus - 20 minutes by hire car, and it's a beautiful trip right along the coast. Kas is only about 15 km from Kalkan. It's worth a trip just for the lovely drive - not much there though as it's more of a working town.

Sorry Blynda, but I have to disagree with you about Kas - "not much there though as it's more of a working town"! Yes, Kas is a working town - which means it is lively and bustling, with a lot of visiting yachts and gulet boats and local fishermen as well as international tourism, whereas Kalkan nowadays is no longer a fishing village but merely a tourist town, which is particularly attractive to the Brits. Both towns have cobbled streets and bougainvillea growing up the walls and balconies of the houses, and pretty settings, with modern constructions sprawling up behind them. Whilst Kalkan is famous for its top class restaurants, there are also good restaurants in pleasant settings in Kas, besides a larger range of more traditional Turkish restaurants. Lovely boat trips can easily be made from Kas to Kekova to see the sunken city and the crusader castle in Simena, or across to the island of Meis opposite to spend a day on Greek soil! There is an ampitheatre in Kas which affords beautiful views across the bay, plus loads of ancient Lycian tombs popping up in the streets and gardens.

Are you still trying to work out where to stay in Turkey robinsonkettering, or have you decided to make your base in Kalkan? If so I hope I have given you some ideas of what you can do or see in Kas.

Hi Robinsonkettering,

I highly recommend you to rent a car so you are very flexible during you holiday, you can easy visit Oludeniz and Kas without hassle. They are both worth a visit. Kas is lovely, nice little shopping streets, a lovely view over Meis island, a amfi theatre, a harbor. My opinion, oops, it is so much more laid back than Kalkan. Kalkan is so overbuilt by now, Kas unfortunately as well on the peninsula, but that is not likely a place you will visit unless you have a specific reason.

Oludeniz is a great ride, on your way you can visit Pinara, one of my favorite Lycian sites, as it is a bit away from other sites it remains so deserted. And you do not need to return to the main road if you follow the road to the village and sort all the way on an on, you will be connected almost in to Fethiye.

There are actually talks that a connecting road will be made over that mountain to Kabak and Faralya, which would save a lot of kilometers going to Oludeniz.

Enjoy your holiday, Turkey is a great place to relax!

Would suggest trying Adem's and the Fish restaurant on the way to Kas. Both have beautiful views. If you time it right you could catch the sunset. Have to agree it is a lovely drive. We did a trip through the villages into the mountains to Gumba and then down to Kas and back to Kalkan along the coast road. This was a lovely way to spend a day out.

If you don't fancy driving you could hire a car and driver for the day. Have a great trip!
