Kalkan Things to Do: 49 reviews and 115 photos


Kalkan has a nice pebble beach in the harbour with sun loungers. It has been awarded a Blue Flag Award for its cleanliness. The water depth drops off not far from the shore, so you don't have to walk over pebbles for long.

In the mornings the beach is often rather empty and you can watch the boats leaving for the day. The beach is near several restaurants and the Fener cafe at the lighthouse is right next to the beach. There are toilets to the right (looking towards the harbour) of the cafe.

If you are looking for a larger beach, there is award-winning Patara beach (voted as one of the top beaches in the world by Times Online, Best of 2005 ) and the beautiful ever-turquoise Kaputas Beach, just short distances away. Or if you want to stay in town there are several lovely beach clubs.
