Kalkan City Guide
Kalkan is a beautiful unspoiled Mediterranean style village between Patara and Kaputas beaches. There are many things to do in Kalkan, day or night. By day visit one of the stunning beaches along the coastline, ranging from the popular 18 kilometers sandy Patara beach (also very popular with turtles) to the secluded, empty beaches in the other direction, or you could hire a boat, complete with skipper, from the local harbor. The boat will take you around beautiful islands, coves, and bays where you can swim and snorkel in the turquoise sea. You can also enjoy fantastic onboard dining.
