Turkey's Kalkan Coastline

Sophisticated resorts providing an authentic experience, in the midst of history and stunning nature on the Kalkan Coastline of Turkey. Kalkan has a unique ambience and is one of the most lovely coastline in Turkey.


In recent years, Kalkan has become an in spot for upmarket couples seeking a taste of authentic Turkey. Kalkan is a pretty village of stone built houses set on a hillside around the attractive harbour. Kalkan has a small pebble beach, shops, bars and restaurants on the harbour front.


Patara has the honour of being the longest beach in Turkey, 22 km of beautiful white sand, backed by dunes and mimosa bushes. The beach is a nesting place for the rare Caretta Caretta turtles and access is not permitted after dark.


Kas is a relaxed harbour town, which until recently was relatively untouched by tourism. It is now becoming a firm favourite with older couples, who love its laid back atmosphere.

Wooden houses, their balconies bright with bougainvillea, overhang the narrow streets, home to shops, bars and restaurants.

There are a number of pebble beaches in the surrounding bays.


Kekova, named after its largest island, is a group of islands and bays, home to a number of ancient Lycian settlements, some of which are now submerged in the sea. It is now forbidden to swim here.
