Kalkan – Turkey’s answer to StTropez
Kalkan is an elegant unspoilt destination with winding backstreets leading down to a lively harbour lined with traditional gulets, whitewashed houses and stunning rays of colour from bougainvillea filled courtyards. Carefully controlled development, improving infrastructure and a growing celebrity following are fuelling interest in the upmarket Turkish resort of Kalkan.
A few reasons why we love Kalkan:
Blissful bay setting : Set in a bay overlooked by the Taurus Mountains, life in Kalkan revolves around its old fishing harbour.
Foodie heaven : Despite its comparatively small size, it has more than 200 restaurants, many within the Old Town offering rooftop dining with views across the bay.
Some of the best beaches in Turkey : Kalkan has a small Blue Flag beach next to its harbour, but a short drive takes you to two of Turkey's most spectacular beaches, Kaputas Beach and Patara.
4. Discreet & unspoilt : Offering discreet access by boat, bundles of unspoilt charm and a selection of world-class restaurants means Kalkan has also become a favourite with celebrities. Will you spot any famous faces about town?
