7 THINGS TO DO IN KALKAN

The historic town of Kalkan is an enchanting place and one of the most beautiful locations along Turkey’s gorgeous Lycian Coast.

While the lack of land to build and expand is limited, therefore driving property prices up, many locals prefer this since Kalkan has a substantial chance of maintaining its contemporary but traditional atmosphere. The other appealing aspect of Kalkan is that there is plently to do in the area, no matter what your age is.

Lets start with our list !

1. Sail through the Turkish Riviera

The Mediterranean coast is a crucial and highlighted section of the Turkish Riviera so in an upmarket, prestigious resort like Kalkan, naturally taking to the water is a favoured activity for the young and old.

 

2. Tours to Xanthos, Letoon, and Patara

The Local excursion shops sell daily trips to the nearby UNESCO world heritage sites of Xanthos and Letoon. Both belonged to the former Lycian Empire that ruled this stretch of coastline for many centuries before the Persians, Greeks and Romans also conquered the area.

 

3. Scuba Diving 

Many 5-star PADI diving centres operate from the Mediterranean coast of Turkey including Kalkan. Diving into the clear blue waters to discover a vibrantly colourfully range of marine life and underwater shipwrecks has made Kalkan one of the top diving spots in Turkey.

 

4.Kaputas Beach

Just a 10-minute drive along the coastal D400 road or slightly longer on public transport, Kaputas beach, often named by international travel magazines as one of the prettiest in Turkey, is perfect for holidaymakers who want to relax, snorkel, swim and sunbathe.

 

5.Neighboring town of Kas

If you are in Kalkan, you just can not avoid authentic town of Kas which is only a 20 minutes driving distance away. It is a must visit place with its charming cobble streets, authentic fish restaurants, slightly different from Kalkan but also as attractive and cosy as a Mediterranean town.

 

6.Visit the Greek Island of Meis

Departing from the nearby coastal resort of Kas, a ferry sails to the picturesque and rather idyllic Greek island of Meis. The island resembles everything that a typical Mediterranean postcard scene should have including seafront taverns, small, colourful fishing boats, coastal houses and an amazing landscape view.

 

7.Lycian Rock Tombs of the Ruined City of Tlos

An hours drive away, the ruined city of Tlos doesn’t often feature high on Turkey’s list of most prominent historical sites, yet it deserves admiration, mainly for the Lycian rock tombs overlooking the neighbouring plains. Lycians placed dead royalty in tombs or sarcophagus high off the ground so the winged creatures they believed carried them to the after-life would have an easier job. Other impressive landmarks include the castle, theatre, and foundations of the old city agora.

 

Go Paragliding in Kas

Lastly, if you are an adrenaline junkie, the neighbouring resort of Kas or nearby area of Oludeniz is famous for paragliding. The mountain used in Kas is just 1000 meters while Babadag Mountain in Olu Deniz is 200 metres high. The good news is that you don’t have to be experienced to give it a go.
