The Kalkan area
Kalkan is a picturesque fishing village with a great deal of history. At its centre lies the harbour with a mix of local fishing craft, gulets and visiting yachts. Guests can find the perfect sea adventure here from the many on offer each day. Kalkan's streets are narrow and not flat, therefore not really suitable for guests with mobility problems. They do however, contain many local boutique shops which are a nightly attraction to all tourists.
Although Kalkan is a sleepy village by day whilst the tourists enjoy the sun and surroundings, it comes alive in the evening as people make their nightly pilgrimage to one of the many individual roof-top restaurants for which Kalkan is famous.. Here you will find menus and wines to excite all tastes. Quite a number of these restaurants feature annually in reports provided by national newspapers in the UK. Restauarants which, although sophisticated and chic, are still very Turkish and suited to most people's pockets.
Locally to the apartment, there is a small shop which can supply most goods eg fresh,daily bread, water etc and they provide a free home delivery service! There is an excellent weekly market each Thursday where you can barter for goods(T-shirts, jeans, spices etc etc)as well as food produce from the local farmers. Not to be missed!! There are three banks with ATM machines and a Post Office, all in the village.
