Kalkan is the most beautiful town of Kaş district, west of Antalya. Continuing from the coast in the direction of Fethiye from Kaş, it stays by the beach just below the main road. Kalkan, an attractive tourist destination, is one of the few places in our country that preserves its naturalness with its Old Greek houses, small marina, Lycian rock tombs, clean air and sparkling deep blue sea.
Kalkan, located on the Mediterranean coastline between Antalya and Fethiye, is one of the favorite stops of those who explore on a blue cruise. The town, which has a rich culture and art life with its intellectual and wealthy population living in the town in summer and winter, is flooded by European visitors especially in summer.
Kalkan, located approximately 30 km west of Kaş, is a small port town with its beauty reminiscent of a painting. Kalkan, which is very lively in the summer months, is famous for its places to visit and activities, as well as boat tours, bars, hotels, pensions and fish restaurants.
Kalkan has the Mediterranean spirit with its breathtaking modern villas lined up in terraces from the coast to the hill, stylish boutique hotels, white architecture and streets decorated with bougainvillea of different colors.
Kalkan, which is a part of Kaş district, was founded by merchants living on the nearby Meis Island during the Ottoman period and was an important maritime trade port of that period. Later, with the opening of the Antalya highway, maritime trade lost its importance and the merchants left this place.
Kalkan, inhabited mainly by the British, is the town called “The Closest Place to the Stars” by Herodotus, who lived before Christ. It is one of the few tourism centers of Turkey and the world, with its untouched natural beauties and the historical remains of the Lycian civilization around it.
Kalkan is divided into three regions by its location. The first of these is the section that is used as a bazaar today and where historical houses with narrow streets are located. Another area is the new residential area where the villas are located. Due to its magnificent view, these villas rise towards the slopes. The last area is the area with beautiful hotels and villas.
1. Kalkan Center
The center of Kalkan is cute little and very cute. Streets and houses are painted white. It has a slight Greek architectural feel. Located in a small bay, every street of Kalkan is photographed. With its bars and cafes, fish restaurants lined up around the port, clean hostels and boutique hotels, and the fresh sea air, it has a calm atmosphere away from the noise and hustle and bustle.
Two-storied, white-painted houses are lined up on both sides of the streets that continue upstream from the beach. All streets open to the sea. Wooden shuttered houses, courtyards and streets decorated with bougainvillea seem to be intertwined.
The number of terraced houses is increasing every year. 20 years ago, houses on the hillside were few among the greenery. The population of Kalkan has increased rapidly in recent years. Our visitors, caught in the beauty of Kalkan, are no longer our guests, they are our neighbors. Now, from afar, the entire hill seems to be covered in white.
The many small bars, restaurants and cafes on the ground floors of the houses lining the street are all very cool. Houses and shops are no more than two floors, there is no vertical construction. When there were many people coming and going, many houses started to serve as boutique hotels and hostels.
The most striking structure in the bazaar is the Kalkan Mosque. The elegant building, which was a Greek Orthodox Church before the population exchange, can be seen from everywhere today. The bell of the carved church built in 1897 is now in the Kalkan Village Room. Within a 5-minute walk from Cumhuriyet street, the Mediterranean and Kalkan beach lie in the glamorous blue.
2. Kalkan Bach
Kalkan Beach is right in front of the bazaar. You will be fascinated when you see the color of the sea, crystal clear, immaculate. You may encounter Caretta Caretta turtles while swimming. A sparkling blue flag public beach. Unexpectedly beautiful and clean from a public beach. It has all the features that will make sea lovers happy.
At the point where the spring water coming from the mountain mixes with the sea, the water is quite cool, and it is very pleasant in the sweltering heat of the summer. The turquoise color of the sea is also derived from these spring waters. On the right, the area towards the marina is slightly warmer. The beach is covered with pebbles. It’s good to have sea shoes because of the large, round pebbles along the coast. The sea gets deep very quickly, those with small children should be careful.
It is a bit crowded on weekends, but there are usually comfortable sunbeds and umbrellas, 2 sunbeds and 1 umbrella cost 30 TL. There are showers and umbrellas. Compared to a relatively expensive place like Kalkan, prices are reasonable in the municipality’s property next to the beach. If you want, you can bring your own chair, food and drink.
3. Kaputas Bach
Kaputaş Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, is only 7 km from Kalkan. Among the beaches along the Mediterranean coast, Kaputaş, which stands out with its crystal clear sea water and unique view, is descended with a long and steep staircase. At the end of nearly two hundred steps, the sea shines with turquoise color among the fine-grained sands on the beach, where the white foamy waves meet.
The bay is not very big. The sea is wavy and clean. The beach of the beach, which has a blue flag with its cleanliness and facilities, is a mixture of sand and small pebbles. The entrance to the beach, where the sandy beach is golden yellow, is free. There is no charge for toilets and changing cabins. Two sunbeds and an umbrella are 30 TL. If you want, you can lay your towel aside and enjoy Kaputaş.
Another beauty that I recommend you to see, located near Kaputaş Beach, is the Blue Cave. The cave was discovered in 1972, 18 km from Kaş. It is 50 meters long, 40 meters wide and 15 meters high. Due to its narrow entrance, the cave, where the sunlight reflecting from the sea bottom creates enormous light plays, can be reached by boats departing from Kaş and Kalkan.
4. Village of Islamlar
If you are planning a country trip around Kas, Islamlar is a village you must see. Islamlar, a mountain village famous for its white grapes and trout, is 9 km from Kalkan. In the village, Turks and Greeks lived together for many years. The old Greek name of the village is Bodamya and means ‘rivers’. The village is like an oasis that breathes in the sweltering heat of summer with its rushing streams.
When you come to Islamlar Village, you will see many Greek water mills, the oldest of which is 300 years old. The enormous carved rock tombs in Göldağ and many rock tombs carved into the mountain slopes are also interesting. If you are a fan of villa vacations, which have become popular in recent years, keep in mind Islamlar Village with its unspoiled nature, calm atmosphere and extraordinary Mediterranean view.
It is an ideal alternative to take a breakfast or lunch break in a lush forest, with trout farms set up by the creek and many restaurants. You can find both breakfast and seafood. While traveling between Kaş and Fethiye, you can take a break in the village of Islamlar. After seeing the Islamlar Village, you may want to make an accommodation not just as a stopover place.
5. Patara Ancient City
Patara Ancient City is a very special ancient city close to Kaş. It is located at the southwest end of the Xanthos valley, between Fethiye and Kalkan, in the present-day village of Ovageleş. The journey from Kalkan to Patara takes about 20 minutes. Turkey’s longest beach and the famous assembly of the Lycian League, which is shown as the “best example of democracy in history” is here. It is also known as the birthplace of St. Nicholas, known as Santa Claus in the world. Patara Ancient City deserves to be included in the UNESCO List.
The oldest surviving democratic parliament building, the Patara amphitheater, which represents the transition between Hellenistic form and Roman architecture, the ruins of the oldest lighthouse in the world, built as the prestige work of the Roman Emperor Nero, the basilica, churches, Patara jewelery and baths. Patara Beach, on the other hand, stretches for kilometers where the ancient city meets the sea.
Patara Beach is one of the rare beaches where caretta carettas lay their eggs for millions of years. There are dunes right behind the beach and it’s desert air. The desert scenes in Yeşilçam movies were shot here. It is my favorite place where you can first visit the ancient cities of Xsanthos, Letoon and Patara and then enjoy the day at Patara Beach. There is a ban on visiting after 6 pm.
Patara Ancient City can be visited between 08.00-19.00 in the summer period (April 1 – October 1), and between 08.30-17.30 in the winter period (October 1 – April 1). The ruins are open to visitors 7 days a week. Ticket sale ends half an hour before closing. Patara Ancient City entrance fee is 3 GBP. Museum Card is valid.
6. Xanthos Ancient City
Xanthos Ancient City is a fascinating ancient city that was the capital of the Lycian League. It takes only half an hour to go to the ancient city from Kalkan. The ancient city, which was the administrative center of the Lycian League in history, is one of Turkey’s oldest historical values in the UNESCO List.
In the past, Xantos was a coastal city where ships could dock. As the alluvium brought by the river over time filled the sea, it has remained 8 km inland from the shore today. There is also a sad story in which all his people who fought for freedom were erased from the stage of history.
Despite the legendary defense of the Xanthosites against the attack of the powerful Persian army that swept Anatolia in 545 BC, they realized that resistance would not bring any benefit. They gathered their women, children, slaves and all their assets so that not a single Xanthoslu would surrender, they set fire to the inside of the castle and fought until they died.
There are sarcophagi, tombs and an ancient theater in Xanthos, which has a history dating back to the 7th century BC. All the reliefs and major architectural pieces in the capital of the most democratic union of antiquity are on display at the British Museum in London today.
Xsanthos Ancient City can be visited between 08.00-19.00 in the summer period (April 1 – October 1), and between 08.30-17.30 in the winter period (October 1 – April 1). The ruins are open to visitors 7 days a week. Xanthos Ancient City entrance fee is 2 GBP. Museum Card is valid.
7. Letoon Ancient City
Letoon Ancient City is another jewel of Kalkan. The ancient city, which is on the UNESCO list, belongs to the 8th century BC. The settlement, which is the religious center of the Lycian League, is located near the Kumluova village of Fethiye. This sacred area of Lycia is half an hour away from Kalkan. It is only 10 minutes from Xanthos. In Greek mythology, it is named after Artemis, the children of Zeus, and Leto, the mother of Apollo.
In the ancient city center, there are three temples lined up side by side. The westernmost temple in Ionic order belongs to Leto, the goddess of the city, the smaller temple in the middle belongs to Artemis, and the Doric temple in the east belongs to Apollo. The fountain structure with stoa and the Hellenistic theater in the ruins are among the historical riches of the city.
Letoon Ancient City can be visited between 08.00-19.00 in summer (1 April – 1 October), 08.30-17.30 in winter (1 October – 1 April). The ruins are open to visitors 7 days a week. Ticket sale ends half an hour before closing. Letoon Ancient City entrance fee is 1 GBP. Museum Card is valid.
