Press reviews

Don’t just take our word for it.

The UK press regularly feature Kalkan as the jewel in the crown of Turkey’s beautiful south western coastline. Here is a taste of what they have to say…

The Guardian
“Kalkan is like the Italian Riviera minus the poseurs. A few miles away is Patara beach, a spectacular 18km stretch of golden sand consistently voted one of the best beaches in the world.  At night, Kalkan is prettier still – candle-lit roof-terrace restaurants look out across the glowing white dome of the mosque and the tiny harbour full of gulets. Kalkan is a little oasis of sophistication.”

Evening Standard
“Kalkan is a bougainvillea-covered harbour village only 20 minutes’ drive from Patara with cobbled, winding streets, chic boutiques and seafood restaurants.”

The Sunday Times
“Turkey’s Lycian coast has turquoise seas, white-sand beaches and spectacular Roman ruins.Kalkan is the most attractive town on the southwest coast. Its narrow, sloping alleyways, filled with elegant shops and bars, lead down to the harbour, where you’ll find good fish restaurants and regular boat trips to nearby Kaputas Beach. Patara is just a 20-minute drive away.”

The Daily Telegraph
“This Lycian coastline is truly spectacular. Rugged cliffs of pine forests plunge into turquoise sea. Between them are small bays of sand and shingle accessible only by boat. Kalkan, with its pretty harbour setting, has retained much of its character.”

Sunday Times Travel Magazine
“The road from Antalya along the coast past Finike and Kas to Kalkan has to be one of the most beautiful & uncluttered in the world. Kalkan is a sweetly sited harbour, in a natural bay.”
