General Information

Image

Kalkan is a Mediterranean fishing village located on the turquoise coast of Turkey, not touched as yet by the mass tourism.
This charming village nestles around a historic harbour sheltered at the foot of the towering Mountain of Taurus, overlooking a bay with small islands floating upon the glittering sea.
Kalkan is a very peaceful place with unique atmosphere, narrow streets twisting down to the harbour and remains to the high preference of repeated visitors who are looking to something more than a <> holiday. The area includes many historical sites (such as Tlos and Kekova) and many fine beaches (such as Patara Beach & Kaputaş Beach).
The narrow twisted streets are lined with small local specialities shops and restaurants established in historic buildings, with hanging Ottoman – Greek carved timber balconies and decorated with thick coloured bougainvillea.
Resort’s main economy is tourism and the locals put much pride and effort into town’s historic preservation, which is resulting into Kalkan protecting its distinctive Ottoman – Greek architecture and its very strict building codes.
In opposition to the well-known “Kalkan Style” architecture, the numerous restaurants contribute to the special appearance of the village and good dining remains a way of life up today for the locals and the visitors. For this reason Kalkan is considered as the place with the highest number of restaurants and bars per inhabitant on the Turkish coast.
The locals sincerely love to know their guests and for this reason visitors are warmly welcomed on a universal friendliness along with the characteristic Turkish hospitality. (Do not hesitate to accept one of the many flower shaped cups of tea you will be offered whilst you are wondering along Kalkan’s narrow streets.
The population is a mixture of Istanbul Turks and Turks from other districts, who have turned Kalkan into their own home with their own small family businesses and feel really proud of what they have created in this charming part of Mediterranean.
