One of the most exciting aspects of a holiday is trying out new food and drinks. Kalkan is a gastronomic treat, we would not hazard a guess at how many restaurants there are to choose from. The dining options in Kalkan are wonderful with a wide range and style of cuisine available, to suit every palate. How could you do anything but indulge!
Feeling weary or just enjoy being pampered? A visit to a hamam, a steam bathhouse of Roman origin, is a distinctly Turkish experience and one we would highly recommend, combine this with a relaxing massage and you will undoubtedly feel refreshed. There are also a variety of spa and beauty treatments available for both men and women in Kalkan.
Whilst a day dipping into the pool at Truffle Residences is lovely, sometimes you just want to swim in the sea. You can choose to visit the beaches at Kalkan, Kaputas and Patara or relax at a number of beach clubs which are around Kalkan Bay.
No holiday to Kalkan would be complete without a day out on a gulet (wooden yacht) a uniquely Turkish experience. Briefly escape on a graceful gulet to enjoy cruising round to various beaches and coves, where you can dive into the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean. Moonlight and BBQ cruises are also available.
Not everyone visits Kalkan for a rest and to laze in the sun and there is lots to see in this interesting part of Turkey all of which are within easy reach from Kalkan. You can take a day trip to Kas, Fethiye or hop on a boat to the Greek Island of Meis to shop and explore or, visit the Lycian historical sites of Pinara, Sidyma, Xanthos, Patara, Letoon and Tlos.
For those of you who require more than lying on a lounger, or feel the need to work off some of the fabulous Turkish food, there are a numerous activities to be enjoyed, including mountain biking, scuba diving, sea kayaking, canyoning, paragliding, water tubing and rafting.
