Situated by a harbour at the foot of the Taurus mountains, Kalkan is a resort for those seeking a little more than sun, sea and sand. It is a sophisticated historic town with some fine examples of Ottoman Greek architecture. Instead of booking a hotel in Kalkan, why not consider renting self-catering accommodation? A beachside villa or an apartment in the town will give you more space and independence. You won't have to eat in restaurants every day; you'll be able to cook as and when it suits your family.
Kalkan is the ideal destination for those who want to get away from the crowded beaches. As well as water sports, diving and boat trips, there are excellent restaurants and shops offering the highest in quality. Why not dine at a restaurant with a roof terrace that affords a picturesque view of the harbour? Or shop for antiques, oriental carpets, jewellery or furnishings. If you are feeling like having a swim, Kaputas beach and French Bay are both within easy reach of Kalkan. For those looking for a thrill, try canyoning in the Kaputas Gorge just four miles away.
Kalkan may not be the obvious choice for those who want to relax on the beach, but it does offer interesting activities for families with children. Local water sports include canoeing, kayaking, jet skiing and windsurfing. You can take a boat trip to visit the region's cave systems, including the famous Blue Cave, the largest in Turkey. The Guvercinlik Cave three miles away provides a habitat for both bats and wild pigeons. It is also possible to have diving lessons, and you might be lucky enough to see the wreck of the Duchess of York, a ship built in Hull. For a complete change of scenery, take a trip to Bezirgan, an active farming community just over ten miles from Kalkan.
