TRAVEL REVIEW: Turkey’s hidden Gem, beautiful Kalkan…


Kalkan is one of Turkey’s hidden gems, the kind of laid-back lazy resort where time can pass doing virtually nothing except relaxing, soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying your holiday.

Spend your days swimming in the clear Mediterranean waters; then, what could be better than an early evening promenade through the narrow streets to explore the charming boutiques, before settling down with a cold glass of wine to admire the views over the harbour. Kalkan has an excellent choice of restaurants, serving authentic local cuisine and freshly-caught fish.

Kalkan is a great base for exploring the surrounding area. Visit Kekova, the sunken city, which lies submerged just off the coast. For beach-lovers, Kalkan has its own small pebble beach, or head out of town to the nearby beautiful beaches of Kaputas or Patara, an 11 mile stretch of golden sand.

Stay in the elegant Oasis Hotel & Suites.
The Oasis Hotel & Suites is an intimate boutique hotel offering stylish accommodation, just a short stroll form the centre of Kalkan. It is a serene, adult-only hotel, which doesn’t accept children under 14. The hotel has two pools with poolside sunbathing terraces and offers spectacular views over the bay.

Its chic rooftop restaurant has some of the best views in Kalkan and serves delicious contemporary cuisine. The Oasis boasts a sumptuous spa complete with sauna and Turkish Bath. Accommodation is in attractive rooms and luxury suites, two of which even have their own private pool.

Our consultant’s view; “A small resort where you can really just relax and unwind in blissful surroundings.”
