Introducing Kalkan

Kalkan is a well-to-do harbourside town built largely on hills that look down on an almost perfect bay. It's as justly famous for its excellent restaurants as its small but central beach. Just be aware that Kalkan is far more touristed, expat and expensive than most other places on the coast, including neighbouring Kaş.

A thriving Greek fishing village called Kalamaki until the 1920s, Kalkan is now largely devoted to high-end tourism. Development continues up the hills, with scores of new villas appearing each season. But look for Kalkan's charms in the compact old town.
