Looking for the perfect family holiday spot? Somewhere that manages to keep everyone happy and occupied but doesn’t break the bank? Somewhere you can really take time out from your busy lives to reconnect, engage and most importantly, have fun together? Then Kalkan is the best choice for your family! Here’s why....


It’s how Mediterranean Holidays Should Be!

Kalkan began life as a traditional Greek fishing village and retains that bohemian, affordable luxury charm today! Stretching down the hillside to a small yacht harbour, it has a picturesque bay, pretty fishermen cottages and welcoming restaurants. You won’t find karaoke bars or groups of rowdy party goers here; instead the emphasis is on delicious food, beautiful beaches and lazy, relaxing days! With stretches of perfect sand, crystal clear azure waters and freshly caught seafood served at restaurants by the port, it’s the perfect destination for families looking to spend time together and reconnect.


It’s easy to reach from the UK!

Nearby airport Dalman is a 90 minute drive away and has direct flights from across the UK including London, Leeds and Edinburgh. Don’t let the transfer time put you off! You will be rewarded by less crowds, more unspoilt beaches and an altogether more enjoyable holiday where your family really gets to spend time together!

There’s plenty to keep everyone occupied!

Laid back doesn’t mean boring in Kalkan. If you have older or more active kids, keep them busy with water sports such as water skiing or kayaking, boat trips, snorkelling… the list is endless! Explore the Lycian ruins of Xanthos – easy to reach from Kalkan, this is an enjoyable trip where the history buffs can learn about Lycian culture and the little explorers 

can enjoy clambering around the ruins. Nearby Patara beach was voted on of the top beaches in the world by the Times online! Set in a national park and bordered by stunning mountains, it has perfect white sand and makes a great day trip. Just make sure to leave by sun down - that’s when the turtles take over the beach to lay their eggs!


It’s excellent value for money!

Family holidays shouldn’t break the bank! Kalkan offers great value for money with a family holiday here typically costing much less than one in Spain, France or Greece! Plenty of low cost carriers offer flights from the UK, including Jet2, EasyJet and Thomas Cook, meaning you can save money on flights too. Once you get here, you’ll find eating out is cheap and accommodation is excellent value!




It’s not just for water lovers!

Kalkan may have some of the most beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean but it has so much more to offer too! The surrounding hills are full of walking trails, ranging from easy, half hour strolls to more strenuous hikes- perfect for all levels of ages and abilities and affording stunning views of the countryside, with many ancient ruins nestled in the hillside.
