kalkan holidays - turkey
spectacular views of both sea and mountain
The essence of the beautiful south-west Mediterranean coast of Turkey is captured in Kalkan – and you can get a taste of that beauty when you choose it as your holiday destination with The Co-operative Travel.
The sea, the mountains, and the peace and quiet are the simple recipe which has ensured the success of Kalkan.
Sitting in a bay at the foot of the Taurus mountains, you will be able to feast your eyes on spectacular views of both sea and mountain, as well as buildings of Greek and Turkish origin.
Kalkan Bay has a man-made pebble beach which holds an EU blue flag for cleanliness, and the calm waters are ideal for diving and many other watersports. There are diving schools in the resort which welcome beginners.
shopping and things to do in kalkan
The town is blessed with a good selection of mainly small, independent shops and a number of restaurants which will give you a flavour of tradition right across their menus.
The more unspoilt Old Town is your best hunting ground for these, and such is the reputation for quality and value which many of them enjoy, that the town attracts many visitors from elsewhere in the region.
Pick one with its own roof terrace, and you can savour your meal to the sight of the setting sun disappearing into the sea, to be replaced by a romantic, starry sky. With more than 100 restaurants to choose from, no two meals you enjoy on your Kalkan holiday need be the same.
Among the historic sites which a Kalkan package holiday or all-inclusive holiday puts you within easy reach of are Patara, Xanthos and Myra, and there are many different periods of history represented.
Kalkan’s reputation as a resort enjoyed by wealthy Turks means that the quality of your welcome, your accommodation and your overall holiday experience is assured. So see the current deals and offers available to Kalkan from The Co-operative Travel, and make it a holiday to remember!
