Kalkan

Kalkan
Kalkan, an old fishing town, famous for its white-washed houses. Situated on a very steep slope descending to the sea, Kalkan is 13km from the Patara turn off and is the former Greek village of Kalamaki.

Living in Kalkan

Many British have taken up residence here turning Kalkan into an upmarket expat colony of around 1200, out of a population of 4000. The house prices match those in Europe and it remains more exclusive and quainter than nearby Kas.  

Restaurants and Bars in Kalkan

Restaurants and bars are spread out throughout the town with most of the bars being just above the seafront and on Hasan Altan Street, which at nightfall becomes the main walk way linking the bus stop with the town centre.  Some of the restaurant prices are exorbitant, serving curries and dull British fare, although there are some well established restaurants down at the waterfront. 

Beaches of Kalkan

Kalkan’s pebble beach Komuluk, situated at the east edge of town, is clean and cooled by the fresh water seeping from nearby springs. It becomes very full during high season but there are swimming platforms available in beach clubs such as Likya, Kalamar, Patara and Mahal on the borders of the bay, which can be reached with a shuttle from the harbour. The only other beach, with course pebbles, is in walking distance between Gelemis and Akbel, 2km northwest of Kalkan.  
6km on route to  Kas is Kaputas Gorge, a deep canyon going back into the cliffs and steps from the roadside parking area take you down to Kaputas Beach , a 150m stretch with pebbles and blonde sand.

Hotels in Kalkan

Most of the purpose built hotels here are blocked booked by the tour operators and a few guesthouses or pansiyons are located in the Yaliboyu area. The closest recommendable accommodation is on Kalkan Bay, about 3.5km out of town. 

Closeby Places to Visit

Kalkan serves as a good base for exploring Patara,  Xanthos and Letoön and excursions run into the Toros Mountains from here. The main buses and dolmus operate from  Fethiye to Kalkan.
