     Kalkan is one of the most visually stunning bays along this part of the Turkish coast line. The mediterranean is such a deep azure blue, a captivating sight. We cannot speak highly enough about Kalkan; it was always described as uncommercialised Turkey and although this is true to a certain extent, the number of repeat guests to kalkan is high, in actual fact, for this very reason. This suits the type of guests who appreciates good standarts and friendly people, efficiency, culture. Kalkan is an area of outstanding natural beauty and the town’s steep cobbled streets and whitewashed drop down the sea. Kalkan is fishing village with a marina with yachts, gulets and fishing boats.



Kalkan is quite laid-back with most people spending time by the clear water lapping coast. In the evening The village offers a delightfull blend of eating, drinking and shopping and completely pedestrianised at the night as the cafes and bars spill onto streets creating wonderfully warm and enjoyable atmosphere…..
