    • Kalkan, Turkey

Kalkan is a beautiful and popular resort on Turkey’s sparkling Turquoise Coast. Favoured by both couples and groups, its superb location is great for sightseeing. Kalkan is an upbeat resort with a real unique charm that comes alive after dark. The cobbled streets and picturesque harbour add a touch of tradition to this modern, sophisticated seaside town.

Excellent beaches

The Blue Flag beaches that line the coast of Kalkan are beautiful. A long stretch of soft, white sand shelves gently into calm, glistening waters. The tranquil waves make the beach ideal for relaxing afternoons, reclining on sun loungers under parasols. If you’re after a more upbeat activity, there are lots of water sports available, from water skiing and paragliding to banana boats and canoeing.
Cafés and restaurants line the coast where you can eat fresh seafood and sip on delicious cocktails. A pleasant, pebbly beach lies next to the beautiful harbour, where the sun-soaked sea is a perfect romantic spot to sit and watch the boats dance on the horizon at nightfall.

History and culture

Kalkan was once a working fishing town and a safe harbour between Kaş and Fethiye. Its traditional character can still be seen through the cobbled streets of whitewashed houses that sit along the shore. Kalkan is close to significant, historic landmarks including Kayakoy; an evacuated ghost town and the Lycian city ruins of Tlos. Tourism has only become apparent in the last 40 or so years so the town still thrives on the traditional Turkish laid-back way of life.

Lively nightlife

Aside from its romantic setting and rich history, Kalkan has a vibrant nightlife to keep you entertained. Whether you want a quiet drink in a scenic setting or a dance floor in a buzzing nightclub, this modern town has it all.
Drink cocktails in a feel-good contemporary atmosphere at Club Karma, where resident DJs play the latest summer hits giving you a chance to grab your friends and dance the night away. A popular place for a drink and a meal during sunset is the Botanik Garden Bar, with its unique setting along a peaceful river, decorated with green flora. With the glow of the garden lanterns, it’s easy to relax on the hammocks that hang from the blossoming trees.
