About Kalkan

Kalkan is a popular tourist destination and is part of the larger, neighbouring town of Kas. Although it is part of the Antalya region, it is actually closer to Fethiye (about 1 hour away) which is part of the Mugla region.

The climate of Kalkan has the characteristics of a typical Mediterranean climate with hot and dry summers, rainy and mild winters. Sea water temperature rarely falls below 16 degrees Celsius. Swimming and diving sports last for 9 months. The average temperature is around 30–39 in summer and around 14–20 in winter.

With an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, Kalkan is a place preferred by locals and foreigners for a healthy life. It has been an important area in every period of civilization and has attracted attention due to its strategic location. The Kalkan region, which has hosted many important civilizations from the Hittites to the Lycians, from the Romans to the Ottomans, is an outstanding holiday route today, especially preferred by British tourists.

When you walk through the steep cobblestone streets of Kalkan, which dates back to the Lycian civilization, you find yourself in sea coves shaped by green and blue. The region has a wide historical background.

Kalkan has a small number of more boutique style hotels, but most visitors to Kalkan stay in one of the many self-catering villas and apartments it has to offer. Kalkan is one of the most popular accommodation choices in this area. Being one of the ‘blue flag’ seas in Turkey, it is a perfect summer tourism destination. Patara Beach, with its 17kms of sandy beach is a short taxi ride away, and in the opposite direction 5 km away is Kaputaş Beach, which continues to be a shining star on the Mediterranean coast. With its carefully protected natural areas and historical heritage, Kalkan should be at the top of the list of holiday destinations worth seeing.
