About Kalkan

Kalkan, on Turkey’s southwestern coast, used to be a fishing village but now it’s a cosmopolitan seaside town. It is however still unspoilt by mass tourism and remains a charming haven and our perfect paradise. The traditional old town comes with whitewashed houses cascading with bougainvillea, winding cobbled streets, colourful shops and excellent harbour-side or roof terrace restaurants and bars are combined with stunning views. Very strict building codes keep the town small and architecturally blended with the historic heart of the town known as “Old Kalkan”. You won’t find noisy, wild nightlife here, like in some other coastal resorts.  

Because of its great charm, Kalkan has a growing number of long term repeat visitors who say the town is the only holiday destination they would choose to revisit. No matter how many times you have been here before you fall in love again. 

It really is a uniquely welcoming destination and that’s why we call it bliss! 

Trains, Planes and Automobiles

There are no trains so we assume the majority of visitors will either fly into Dalaman or Antalya airport.  Due to the highway and tunnel Kalkan can be reached from Dalaman in one and a half hours by car.  Whatever your requirement for transfers, hire a car or a taxi, we can help you.  

If you need a taxi, we will arrange for you to be met at the airport and taken safely to your accommodation.  Depending on the size of your party this will either be by car or minibus.  Alternatively, if you wish to hire a car, we can also help you arrange this. Simply go to contact us page and let us know the details. 

Once you are in Kalkan, if you don’t fancy walking around or getting into your hire car taxis are really easy to find and cheap too.   For trips outside of Kalkan, taxis are still a good option, but the local minibus or dolmus runs a regular service for a couple of pounds.
