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



Kalkan is a Turkish fishing village which has retained more of its Ottoman character and has beauty and charm despite the inevitable modern development. Kalkan is a favourite destination for tourists coming for a week's holiday with its upscale resort status or years of easy retiremnet living.
