Kalkan bay will take your breath away. It's crystal clear turquoise water, and mountains rise steeply behind it providing a dramatic and beautiful backdrop. Free from the influences of mass tourism, the town is unspoiled, upmarket and charming, with amazing views at every turn.

Strict building codes ensure the towns historic preservation, and the many fine restaurants contribute to the special atmosphere that brings back visitors time and time again.

Narrow cobbled streets that wind away from the harbour with bougainvillea covered wooden ottoman balconies and historic architecture are typical of the old town, and the warm Turkish hospitality will stay with you long after your holiday is over.
