Kalkan is a small, peaceful Mediterranean resort and fishing town on the beautiful turquoise coast of Turkey. It has been inhabited since antiquity due to its important location as the only safe harbour between Kas and Fethiye.
The ancient harbour is sheltered at the foot of the towering Taurus Mountains.
Kalkan has not been touched by mass tourism. It is more sophisticated than the usual resort town and appeals to travelers looking for more.
The town overlooks a beautiful bay and the narrow streets wind down to the harbour through the historic town. Kalkan is the ideal resort for a calm and relaxing holiday. Here you will find mountains with pine forests, turquoise sea and ancient remains.
Much of the surrounding land remains undeveloped. The remains of ancient civilizations are evident all around.
Kalkan is famous for its restaurants and there more than 90 to choose from. From fabulous roof top terraces where you can watch the sun going down whilst eating fresh fish or local turkish cuisine to harbor side eateries. The choice is yours.
