Kalkan is a town in the western part of Antalya, in the district of Kaş. It is surrounded by mountains with pine and cedar forests parallel to the coast, which is referred to as the Mediterranean Alps in many foreign sources.
The shores of mostly rocky, deep, very turquoise sea are covered with maquis and olive groves. The small harbor of beautiful Kalkan, originally a typical Mediterranean fishing village, is now home to local fishing boats, sailboats, diving boats and daily tour boats. The old Greek houses covered with bougainvillea on the small streets of Kalkan town, closed to traffic, are now home to beautiful terrace restaurants and bars, handmade souvenirs and boutiques, and many colorful shops.
At the end of a wonderful day where you swam, rested or maybe traveled a lot, Kalkan will surround you in the evenings with its bright, historical and colorful atmosphere.
