The idyllic town of Kalkan, nestling in the Taurus Mountains, is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt locations along Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. A former Greek fishing village, Kalkan has retained its old-world charm. Its enchanting narrow streets, lined with small shops, local restaurants and listed whitewashed houses, twist down to a picturesque harbour and local beach.
If you're looking for a relaxing holiday this is the perfect resort, yet there's a lot to see and do here. There are beach clubs fed by natural springs; unspoilt coves and sandy beaches; crystal clear waters offering some of the best diving and snorkelling in the Med; archaeological sites to explore; natural wonders such as Saklikent Gorge; activities ranging from para-gliding, jet-skiing and canoeing to horse riding and trekking; boat trips; cut-price shopping; beautiful mountain villages and harbour towns to explore; warm, hospitable local people; and some of the best food you'll eat anywhere in the Mediterranean.
