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 popular for its excellent restaurants as its small but central beach. Just be aware that Kalkan is pricier and more dominated by British holiday-home residents and tourists than most other coastal spots, including nearby 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.
