     Amenities 


Kalkan is a enchanting harbour village resting in the foothills of
the Toros mountains and overlooking a beautiful bay. Its quaint,
traditional, white-washed houses, shuttered windows and balconies
garlanded with brilliant flowers that cascade to the streets below,
make it the ultimate peaceful holiday village in the Mediterranean
region of Turkey. Narrow winding streets lined with souvenir shops
and small cafes and restaurants lead down to the charming marina.
Many people have their favorite restaurants but our advice is to
explore and try as many as possible as each restaurant has its own
style and different choice of menus.

Quietly peaceful by day, Kalkan comes alive at night with plenty of
shops, restaurants and small bars to add a change of pace to your
day. The choice of restaurants from the harbour to those on the roof
terraces are all good quality and you will have great difficulty in
choosing a favorite eating place. There are also many cafe's and
small eating places for family eating and you will find that all the
restaurants are amazingly good value. You will also find several
places to have a drink and listen to music. The local wines and
beers are really excellent and very affordable, as are the
groceries, vegetables, fruit and cigarettes. Seek out a bar on the
harbour for a good place to sit and have a drink, watch the world go
by, then if the mood takes you dance the night away until the new
dawn slowly rises for another guaranteed day of sunshine. Everywhere
you go in Kalkan you will find a friendly welcome making Kalkan the
resort to have a relaxing family holiday.The weather in Kalkan is
the equivalent climate of Southern California with sunshine almost
guaranteed. A cool breeze called the "The Meltem" usually appears in
the afternoon just when you need it.

The clean, white pebble beach stretches along the front and is
excellent for safe family bathing andthe perfect place to catch up
with your sun tan and snorkelling. The sea water temperature rarely
drops below 16°C thus enabling swimmers to have an eight to nine
month bathing season. The water is always crystal clear, warm and
sparkling clean as no sewage enters the sea. The pure white stony
bottom and crystal clear water gives truth to the name of
the 'Turquoise Coast'. Local vendors walk along the beach selling
pastries and soft drinks. We recommend the apple pastries. You can
also walk to the nearby local bars for a refreshing freshly squeezed
orange juice or a turkish coffee.

One of the many pleasures of holidaying in Kalkan is the wide choice
of beautiful places to swim and bathe.You will probably discover
your own favourite bathing spot in Kalkan or somewhere along the
coast with Kapitas only 5km from Kalkan or Patara beach 12km which
is one the finest unspoilt sandy beaches in Europe. Another option
is a day at the beach clubs. These are platform beaches across the
bay which are reached by frequent shuttle boat service from the
marina. The platforms provide everything a holiday-maker can need or
dream of, from a sophisticated tequila cocktail to beach mats and
banana boats.

Kalkan has a small marina that is home to luxury yachts,gulets and
deep-sea diving boats. You can hire a gulet for the day, stretch
yourself out on a sun mattress as the gulet meanders lazily from
beach to island to protected cove. You will swim in transparent
turquoise waters, eat lunch on the boat and enjoy a friendly
afternoon turkish tea, all for a modest charge.
Jasmine Villa is only a 10 minute walk to the shops and village
centre and only a 15 minute walk to the beach passing through the
alleys and shops of Kalkan.



 

     Attractions 


On most tours you will travel in an air conditioned car or mini bus
and if you wish, you can take the local Dolmus (shuttle service in
modern air conditioned minibuses).
Sun, Sea and Beach
If you want a self catering villa with sun, sea and beach holiday, a
cultural or a fun activity holiday, you will find a wide variety of
things to do from Kalkan, Turkey. You can be collected from your
vaction holiday villa to be taken on one of the many guided day
trips available to all the nearby , the many beaches along the coast
or a trip to the nearby towns of Kas and Fethiye. Kalkan itself has
a village market each Thursday selling a range of goods, souvenirs
and locally grown produce and the famed spices of Asia Minor within
a 5 minute walk from the villa. For the water sports enthusiasts,
there are trips to Patara Beach for parascending or Saklikent Gorge
for a days canoeing only 20 minutes drive from the villas.

Scuba Diving
Kalkan has one of the best Dive Centres on this part of the
Turquoise coast for beginners wanting a days taster to experienced
scuba divers wanting new seafloors to explore. Kalkan Dive Centre
offers a one day dive costing around £25 to a 3 day dive for around
£70. They even do night dives for around £20. Operating in Kalkan
Harbour only 10 minutes from the holiday villas. See 'Island Diving'
site for informatiom

Day Trips
Some of the day trips are very good value but you can always hire a
car and driver for very little compared to many holiday
destinations. With the drivers assistance you can arrange your own
personalised day out and even add a relaxing massage in an authentic
Turkish bath (Hamam). An experience you will talk about for a long
time. A few of the sites to visit with the local tour operators are-
: Kekova and Simena, Lycia's famous sunken city and Roman castle
ruins, Xanthos which was the capital city of Lycia and which has
recently revealed complete mosaic floors, Patara which is famous for
its beautiful 18 km sandy beach and it's nearby ruins, Pinara with
it's beautiful Lycia ruins, Tlos- another great Lycian city and home
of Pegasus, the famous rock tombs of Myra and the church of St.
Nicholas and the three temples of the sacred Lycian cult centre or
Letoon. Then return in the evening to your own barbeque on the roof
terrace of your own self catering holiday villa.

Hiking Trips
If you love hiking then why not take a hiking tour and experience
the stunning beauty of the Taurus Mountains and their plateaus.
There are daily tours from Kalkan to nearby villages in the
mountains or some trips with overnight stays futher away from
Kalkan. They have many different trips for the less experienced and
more difficult ones for the experienced hikers. These tours are
designed for all ages and abilities. You will get a good insight
into the local flora and fauna of the mountains and enjoy the cool
fresh breezes of the higher places. These tours will allow you to
delight in the most amazing scenery and take lunch with one of the
most friendly and hospitable people on Earth. Then return to your
vacation villa for a refreshing swim in your own private pool before
visiting the restaurants on the charming harbour of Kalkan.

Daily Boat Cruises
A great favourite for most holiday makers is a relaxing day trip on
a Gulet, which is a Mediterranean wooden boat, relaxing and
sunbathing on sunbeds between stopping in tiny bays to, swim
snorkel, or fish from the boat in the most amazingly clear, clean
waters. You even get provided with a tasty turkish meal at lunchtime
and afternoon 'Tea' Turkish style. a trip can be booked from the
Harbour in Kalkan only ten minutes walk from your holiday villa.

Gulet and Yacht Trips
Enjoy a three-day, two-night Gulet or skippered sailing yacht trip
along the beautiful Lycian coast from Kalkan to Fethiye and nearby
islands or Kekova and beyond. There are also one day yacht trips to
visit the Greek island of Meis. You can be collected from your
vacation Villa.

Cultural Trips
If you want to discover inland Turkey and meet the friendly peoples
of the plateaus of the Taurus Mountain you can take a tour to the
small towns and village settlements where people still live with
traditions firmly rooted in the past. You will learn about the daily
lives of the the local people and their religion, agriculture,
cookery, craftwork, leisure and other aspects of their daily lives
before returning to your holiday villa to freshen up and take a
stroll to the nearby village for some evening shoping and eating in
the many restaurants.

Horse Riding and Donkey Trips
Take a day out with the famous Suleman's Donkey tours as seen on one
of the UK's travel programs or enjoy a day out horse riding through
pine forests, along the Xanthos River and around the ancient ruins
and beach of Patara. After a days riding you will be happy to return

evening watching the sun sink behind the islands in Kalkan bay
