There are no large All-Inclusive hotels in Kalkan to be found, instead distinctive Ottoman/Greek architecture, small boutique hotels and pansyons (guest houses), a great selection of ‘cool’ bars and sophisticated restaurants nestled around the quaint harbour and winding sloping streets above. Kalkan is still one of Turkey’s best kept secrets, Patara beach and Kas are some of the great places nearby to visit.
