My Kalkan pages have the archaeological sites on to go and visit in the local area and some of the nearby beaches.
Popular is a trip across to the Greek island of Kastellorizo or Meis in Turkish, or a glass bottomed boat trip down to Kekova.
Popular and most shady place in the centre is Noel Baba tea house/cafe, serves most drinks and snacks.
