The enchanting harbour town of Kalkan in Turkey with its steep cobbled streets and colourful marina is an ideal choice for those looking for a relaxing and laid back resort with some character.
Escape Mass Tourism
Kalkan has escaped mass tourism because of its setting on a hillside spread around a small beautiful bay. The resort has its own small pebble beach which means the water is wonderfully clear and crisp for swimming in. There are other larger beautiful beaches 15 minutes away by Dolmus (bus) services which run regularly and are inexpensive. You can spend an enjoyable relaxing couple of hours having lunch or dinner at one of the many restaurants along the attractive marina admiring the sea views.
Explore the Surrounding Area
Visitors should take time to explore the surrounding area by boat to admire Turkey’s stunning Turquoise Coast. They should also visit the ancient Castle of Simena and the fascinating sunken city of Kekova.
Attractive Hotels and Villas
The resort has many very attractive hotels and villas suitable for couples and families alike. Here are a few examples:
The Oasis Hotel in Kalkan is a lovely boutique hotel in a perfect location within walking distance of the resort centre – perfect for couples.
The stylish Elixir Hotel is another charming boutique hotel with stunning views over Kalkan Bay – perfect for couples looking for comfort and relaxation.
The charming Kalamar Hotel is perfect for both families and couples and also enjoys fabulous views over Kalkan Bay with sea facing rooms with private balconies or shared terraces.
The Antik Villas can take up to 6 and are full of character with stone floors and stylish furnishings. They have their own private pool and sunbathing terrace and an easy walk takes you into town.
