Situated by a harbour at the foot of the Taurus mountains, Kalkan is a resort for those seeking a little more than sun, sea and sand. It is a sophisticated historic town with some fine examples of Ottoman Greek architecture. As well as water sports, diving and boat trips, there are excellent restaurants and shops offering the highest in quality. Why not dine at a restaurant with a roof terrace that affords a picturesque view of the harbour? Or shop for antiques, oriental carpets, jewellery or furnishings. If you are feeling like having a swim, Kaputas beach and French Bay are both within easy reach of Kalkan. For those looking for a thrill, try canyoning in the Kaputas Gorge just four miles away.
