Historic Kalkan Town
Kalkan is situated in the south west of Turkey set within the Turkish Riviera, also known popularly as the Turquoise Coast. The town is of historical note with a number of tourist sights nearby. It is renowned as a holiday destination for its sloping hillside setting and quant harbour looking out across the Aegean and Mediterranean, its rooftop restaurants and rustic way of life. Strict controls on development and protection of historical dwellings have meant the town retains most if not all of its traditional charm. Many local customs and ways of life remain unchanged for centuries and Kalkan is noted particularly for its cuisine and restaurant culture. A mix of good weather, warm seas and more than a thousand kilometres of stunning shoreline plus abundant natural and archaeological sites of interest makes Kalkan a much loved holiday destination.
The Turquoise Coast, and Kalkan in particular, is home to some of Europeís most impressive beaches. Just east of Kalkanís harbour youíll find a small beach perfect for sun bathing and enjoying the warm waters of the Aegean and Mediterranean coastline. Joint jewels in the crown however are Kaputas and Patara beaches. Kaputas is oft cited as one of Europe's most impressive beaches. This sandy cove set at the foot of an impressive mountainous gorge can often be found on covers of travel magazines. While only 10 kilometres from Kalkan and of considerable note it isnít as busy as you might expect and well worth a visit. A little further away, 18kilometre long Patara Beach is a stunning stretch of pristine white sands, at some points, as wide as 300metres. Forming part of a national park the beach is now protected given the reliance placed on it by the local turtle population as a nesting site. Itís still a tourist hotspot and well worth a visit.
