There is also a selection of specialty shops selling jewellery, crafts and clothes. Kalkan town is famous for its restaurants and there are around 100 to choose from!

A must - hire a boat from the harbour and sail away for the day you'll leave all your cares behind

The town of Kalkan is an enchanting place and one of the most beautiful locations along Turkey's Lycian Coast. With the absence of mass tourism, Kalkan remains a charming and unspoiled haven of lush nature, brilliant blue crystal-clear sea, and warm traditional Turkish hospitality.

Beautiful little harbor and a lovely white Mosque. There are great restaurants along the waterfront. Make sure to go to the market which comes once a week. There is a woman with a big round pan of Baklava. It was the best I have ever had!

If you are in the mood for a quite mediterranean town rather than the craziness of Bodrum alikes, this is a great option. Beautiful small town in the province of Antalya (Lycian coast). I stayed at Villa Mahal, walking distance from town, and loved it. There are multiple sites to visit around Kalkan, but this is also a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the views-sea-food!
