About the neighbourhood
The winding cobbled streets of Kalkan lead you through the old town to the picturesque harbour and the small beach, with views across the bay, and is amazing for the range of excellent cafes and restaurants. The village of Kalkan is protected and there is no chance of it becoming a resort with mass tourism; it maintains its charm and village feel and the locals are very friendly and helpful. There is lots to do and see for all tastes, and many trips can be booked easily from Kalkan village. For example, you can swim in the clear and stunning waters of the famous nearby Patara beach which is located amongst the ancient ruins of Patara; miles of golden sands surrounded by pine trees.
Getting around
The village and harbour of Kalkan can be explored easily by walking from the villa. Many of the beach clubs are easily reached from the harbour where water taxi's (free) run regularly. The Thursday market is approximately 5 mins walk from the villa as is the Bus station where you can catch the local bus (dolmus) to old Patara village, ruins & beach or to the nearby pretty town of Kas or further afield to the larger town, Fethiye. Taxis are also frequently used and reasonably priced if you want to take trips out to the various local sites or simply prefer to return back to the villa from town after a day or night out - about 12-15TL (£2-3 approx). Don't forget to try the relaxing boat day trips which leave and return from Kalkan harbour.
