About Kalkan

Kalkan has the perfect ingredients for a fabulous holiday.

It is widely regarded as the “Diamond” of the Turkish Mediterranean and is an upscale resort with a pretty harbour and an array of high quality roof top restaurants, bars and shops.

Getting to Kalkan

The drive from Dalaman Airport is approximately 1.5 hours or 3 hours from Antalya. There are many easy transfer options at competitive prices and more information can be provided on request. Alternatively you may wish to hire a car from the airport and take a drive yourself.

The town is set on a hillside and almost feels like an amphitheater around the stunning bay. The pretty streets in the old town area are cobbled and full of character and charm. It can be hilly so it is best to wear sensible shoes! Taxis are plentiful and pretty cheap.

Market day is a Thursday where you can browse the many stalls selling food, clothing, gifts etc and have fun bartering with the sellers.

Sightseeing in Kalkan

The wonderful beaches of Patara or Kaputas are within a 10 minutes drive. A trip to Kalkan is not complete without a day boat trip and there are many great value options from the pretty harbour.

There are also a variety of beach clubs where you can sunbathe, swim in the sea, have lunch or relax and watch the world go by.
