When imagining the perfect idyllic Mediterranean harbour, you will have Kalkan in your mind. It has all the necessary ingredients; cobbled streets winding through the town, waterfront restaurants, roof-terrace bars, and beautiful bougainvillea covered white villas. An ideal place for your Premier Villas holiday in Turkey. The town itself lies at the foot of the striking Taurus Mountains and faces out on to crystal clear turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. The views are breathtaking, and while you're eating your freshly caught and cooked fish next to the harbour with your glass of local wine, you'll realise that this is a place you'll never forget - and you'll know that you'll return as do others time and time again. Kalkan caters for the interests of all, whether they are historical, cultural, water sports or just pure relaxation - you are sure to find what makes a holiday for you. In just a few short years, Kalkan has grown from a small fishing village in to a harbour town with its own modern marina, but still retains its own unique character and remains unspoilt by mass tourism. Those who visit Kalkan for the first time will enjoy its versatility, with the restaurants, hotels, and bars being owned by locals and Istanbul Turks there is a varied and eclectic atmosphere and menus not usually found in these places.
Kalkan is frequented mostly by British holiday makers who are drawn by its authenticity mixed with its refined atmosphere. There are many ancient sites to visit in the area such as Patara, Xanthos, Pinara, Letoon, and Tlos. During the day Kalkan is very quiet with most of its visitors heading off to the beaches and beach clubs nearby. From the town centre a dolmus (minibus) takes only ten minutes to get to the hidden Kaputas beach, a small sandy cove beach set at the base of a striking mountain gorge. If you're looking for something a little bigger, the world famous Patara beach is approximately 30 minutes away (by dolmus or car) and boasts an 18 kilometre stretch of white sand.
