Wherever you go in Kalkan, you’ll be greeted with a traditional Turkish welcome. Wander the old town’s streets and you will surely be offered a glass of tea, but unlike most tourist destinations, you won’t feel obligated to purchase something. It is simply the sheer pleasantness of the town.
Once a Greek fishing village, Kalkan has evolved into so much more while still retaining its charm. The unusually high number of roof-terraced restaurants stretch the coast offering excellent food with a view of deep blue water and green surrounding hills. Its picturesque appeal is what drives its recurrent visitors year after year.
With an average of 300 sun-soaked days a year, lovely pebbled beaches, mountains and hills, historic sites and natural wonders, the emerald beauty of Green Lake, and the traditional Ottoman town Elmali, it’s no wonder why there is such a big attraction.
Kalkan is extremely fortunate in that it is situated at the foothills of the Taurus Mountains, influencing its climate to a typical Southern Mediterranean feel. Overall, it enjoys a fantastic record of beautiful weather throughout April to November.
