Beaches

Kalkan has a small pebble beach with sunbeds and fixed parasols (small fee payable). With the natural cold springs coming from the seabed, there are warm and cold spots in the crystal clear Blue Flag Award shoreline. Don’t be surprised if you see a Turtle swimming not far from you!

Patara Beach is about a 15 minute drive away, and there is a regular bus service to it costing just a couple of pounds per person. The beach itself is 17 kms long, sandy, and there are sunbeds and parasols for hire. There is also a cafe, showers and toilets. Patara Beach is a protected beach, as the ‘Caretta Caretta’ (Turtles) lay their eggs here, so you are prohibited from using the beach after dark. As Patara the resort is steeped in history, ruins and artefacts, there is a small entry fee per person. This allows you to not only use the beach, but also visit the ruins.

Kalkan has a handful of beach clubs dotted along the coastline, which are very popular with tourists. Each has bathing platforms with sunbeds, parasols, WC and eating facilities, and direct access to the sea. Some are Adult Only, others are family friendly. Charges range from being free to paying a small fee per person for a sunbed and parasol. Everyone has their favourite beach club, but equally everyone agrees they are a great way to spend the day.

  • 5 star review  I booked a villa in Kalkan via Holiday Lettings. Louise was the property manager for this villa and this was how we met her. Unfortunately, our chosen villa was double booked. However, before Louise told us the disappointing news, she found us a wonderful and arguably better villa than we booked. Not only that she organised shopping for us so that the villa had food and water available on arrival. She checked on us a couple of times to ensure we were happy. She also stepped in and helped us when our teenage daughter left her purse containing all her spending money in a Taxi and was successful in helping us get it back. She recommended restaurants for us to go to. Advised us correctly when we had troubles with the air conditioning units in the villa. Our holiday wasn’t without its challenges but is fair to say that Louise was a safe and reliable pair of hands to help us smooth out any issues and ensure we had a fabulous stay in Kalkan. Thank You.

  • 5 star review  I have never heard about Kalkan till last February, later that month I contacted Louise and described her my requirements in the villa that we are looking to rent in April. She arranged me a villa that has all my requirements and more that I wasn't thinking about in this lovely place. Thank you Louise for your support, I will be happy to come again to Kalkan and dealing with you �.

  • 5 star review  Kalkan is stunningly beautiful. I fell in love with the place on my first visit nine years ago . I travel to Kalkan two to three times a year , mostly three . The sea is superb, people wonderful , so warm and friendly . Restaurants serve first class food and wine , as well as excellent friendly service . Kalamaki is a must if you go there . A boat trip with Sunset Boat trips is unforgettable. We have chartered their boat for two days , a truly memorable trip . If you go for the first time , it won't be your last . You will have the Kalkan bug , so am sure you will return many times . Just live the place ❤

  • We loved this apartment everything was as described in the advert but better! Louise was so helpful right from our initial enquiry and throughout our stay. Thanks to Suleman as well for the water deliveries and general help. There was a small issue with the WiFi to begin with but Louise quickly resolved it by liaising with the engineer. Would definitely recommend Shoreline and hope to book through them again, unfortunately the apartment that we rented has now been sold so won’t be able to book that one again.

  • 5 star review  Kalkan is a very special place, most people return at least once a year and it still amazes us how many years they have visited Kalkan. We found Kalkan on a ramblers holiday in 2003 and have returned over 28 times. The food is wonderful the restaurant are first class the people are so friendly and Helpful, we have never gone back to any resort before but I miss Kalkan so can't wait for June to come around.

  • From the moment we made the initial enquiry to the day we left the villa - Louise was so professional and yet very accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble - no matter what the request, she went out of her way to help. The booking was smooth and without hitch, the villa was stunning and the holiday amazing / thanks to Louise!
