Holidays to Kalkan, Dalaman

Overview

With whitewashed houses covered in flowers, steep lanes through the village and a relaxing, laid back atmosphere that will whisk your worries away, Kalkan is a diamond on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. This historical destination, although still traditional in its charm, attracts holidaymakers with its water sports, modern night life, pretty harbour dotted with yachts and fresh food that will make you want to hang around for more than a week or two!

Things to Do

Although Kalkan is a place where you could easily occupy yourself doing nothing, there’s plenty to do if you want to explore a little. From water skiing and jet skiing to venturing out on a sailing trip to see the coast, you’ll find a lot to do for a day out on the water. Alternatively, wander around the harbour, or take in the ancient sights of Xanthos where you’ll discover this region’s diverse history.

Beaches

Beach life in Kalkan is part of the daily routine during Turkey’s summer months. Join in and relax on the main beach which is towards the east of the harbour in Kalkan. This pebbly beach has plenty of sun loungers and beach bars but if you prefer something more on the sandy side, catch one of the frequent buses to the secluded sandy cove of Kaputas or the 12km stretch of Patara Beach.

Food and Drink

There’s no better way to end a day in the sun other than by enjoying a nice fresh meal at the end of the day. Kalkan used to be a traditional fishing village, so the residents here know how to catch a fresh fish or two. Enjoy a seafood dinner down by the harbour with a glass of cold wine or try out some pide or kofta at a local restaurant to start the evening in style.
