I have read other peoples thoughts on this and I am amazed at the amount of people that are saying Kalkan IS NOT as expensive as the UK!!
Don't be fooled!! I am here now and I have been holidayed here for the last 3 years. When we first came the prices were pretty good for food, drink, taxis, trips etc etc. However as Kalkan has become more popular the prices have risen and risen. We are paying around 11 lira for a 330ml bottle of Efes which is over £3 a bottle, an average DESENT meal is around 35 lira not including a starter, which is just over £10. Yes you can go to places that will be cheaper but the food is generally poor. When we came 3 years ago an average price of an Efes was 5 lira and the average price of a meal was around 20/25 lira. Food shopping is more or less the same as the UK if not more expensive and so are taxi's.
The exchange rate is very high at the moment but I am afraid that is counter acted over here, something that we noticed last year.
Kalkan is a lovely place but NOT CHEAP!!
