Kalkan Harbour

Kalkan nestles in a beautiful bay on Turkey's Stunning Turquoise Coast. It has developed into a sophisticated resort and is picture postcard pretty.
The narrow cobbled streets twist down to the harbour. Having grown from a sleepy fishing village, it is now a town with a stylish marina where you can enjoy a meal whilst watching the world go by.
Kalkan is renowned above all for it's amazing selection of restaurants offering great value for money in Turkish, Mediterranean and International cuisine.
Roof top restaurants and bars with vistas over the fabulous bay contribute to the special atmosphere of the resort. A range of bars cater for a wide variety of musical tastes including stylish classical music, jazz, blues and of course traditional Turkish music.
Kalkan and all it's enchantments will quietly seduce you into living on Turkish time, peaceful and unhurried. There's no doubt that you will find enjoyment in all the region has to offer. This is where the living is easy, the views are stunning, the food is delicious and the people are friendly- what more could you wish for?
This is a country full of life, colour, hospitality and where the welcome is par excellence.
