We just got back after a 5 year absence. Kalkan is just as lovely and remains unspoiled despite some people bemoaning on TA that it now too commercialised. We had a great time but it was slightly marred by the massive rise in taxi fares. We chose a villa located 35 mins walk from town knowing that we would need to taxi back but thinking it wouldn't break the bank. We ended up spending over £100 over ten days. 25 TL for a 5-6 min trip on the meter. We did manage to find a driver who gave us his card and and gave us discount for using him exclusively. He came down to 20TL. So my advise to anyone on a budget would be to find accommodation as close to town as possible. I think the taxi drivers need to re-think their strategy. They will certainly lose out long term. We will go to Dalyan next time. No taxis required.
