Kalkan Harbour Town, Turkey

This postcard pretty and quietly sophisticated historic harbour town is set in a breath-taking landscape on Turkey's evocatively named Turquoise coast. Few places can rival it for unspoilt natural beauty with pine covered cliffs plunging into the sea, secluded coves, fine-sand beaches and sprinkled abundantly with picturesque ruins. The water sparkles — shimmering pockets of emerald green mixing with the darker blue to produce that gorgeous turquoise. Nature isn't just showing off here, it's positively boasting!

Nestling at the foot of the Taurus Mountains this once tiny fishing village is now a chic resort appealing to the discerning visitor, many who return year after year. The narrow winding cobbled streets of the old town descend to the harbour lined with its elegant array of 'gulets' (traditional Turkish sailing boats) and sophisticated restaurants.

Overhanging balcony in KalkanOriginal Ottoman timber balconies, spilling over with brilliantly coloured bougainvillea overhang white-washed houses and roof terrace restaurants. More importantly than all these glowing descriptions however are the people of Kalkan: smiling, generous, and willing to help in any way. They are rightly proud of their village and you can relax in the knowledge that you will not be hassled whilst ambling around the town.

Kalkan is fast becoming Turkey's premier resort for private villa holidays. So if you are looking for loud music, neon lights, dancing on the tables and British style 'pubs' Kalkan is definitely not the resort for you!

Kalkan By Day

Kalkan is quite sleepy during the day as every morning the boats take tourists off on day trips or to one of the nearby beach clubs. It is very pleasant to linger over a Turkish coffee watching the boats slip in and out of the harbour. The shops are open until midnight anyway so most people are enjoying all the sun, sea and sight-seeing opportunities available.

Shopping

If you like shopping you will love Kalkan! The cobbled streets are lined with little shops selling everything from Turkish rugs ('Kilims'), antiques, lanterns, ceramics, souvenirs, coloured glass and paintings to jewellery and fashion. Excellent copies of the latest designer handbags, watches and sunglasses and some lovely shoe shops! Not forgetting Turkish Delight and pashminas everywhere!

Food Shopping

There are some good supermarkets in town and more seem to arrive each year. They stock most things except for ready meals! Most will deliver the shopping back to the villa for you. There are excellent butchers, a fishmonger and greengrocers for all your fresh produce... worth knowing if you wish to barbeque or entertain during your stay. Or take the easy option and have our management team provide and cook a mouth-watering personal barbecue in the privacy of the villa for you!

Eating Out

There are so many different types of restaurants with a wide variety of cuisines that you really are spoilt for choice. Kalkan is enchanting in the evening. It looks magical with its numerous roof terrace restaurants and bars lit up and offering wonderful views of the town. Watch the sun set and the boats slip in and out of the harbour as you dine under the stars. Often restaurants will have live background music.

Restaurant with viewSome hotels and restaurants hold special 'Turkish' nights, featuring traditional Turkish dishes; live Turkish music and folk dancing maybe even a Belly dancer!

There are over 150 restaurants in Kalkan – from Turkish home-style cooking to the exquisite harbour-side restaurants. You will find your own favourites in time! Some popular restaurants are: Korsan Meze, The Fish Terrace, Coast, Trio, Aubergine, Gironda, Sofra and Merkez – a charming café/restaurant in the centre of town where you can watch the world go by. The list could go on and on especially as new ones emerge each year.


Kalkan

Kalkan Market

The market comes to town on Thursdays. Local farmers bring fruit and vegetables in abundance: cheeses, olives, oils, dried fruits, nuts and spices and hand-made olive oil soap. Usual market wares from fashion, jewellery and souvenirs to DVD's and Turkish Delight. The stallholders will ask you to look but they're not overly aggressive, and no one takes offence if you choose not to buy. Do be prepared to barter though! It can be incredibly hot and stuffy so take water. There is a refreshment area -a freshly made Turkish pancake under canvas is another holiday "must".

Kalkan Nightlife

There are a few bars for dancing. However, as mentioned before, Kalkan is definitely not loud and brash. There are plenty of music bars to sit outside, soaking up the atmosphere, whilst you chat and watch the world pass by. Or stroll through the colourful streets and browse in the shops. Enjoy a relaxed family meal or watch the sun set over a romantic candlelit dinner on the roof terraces or by the marina.
