Why Antalya Kalkan
Kalkan region is a very touristic and culturally rich region of Antalya’s Kaş district. Antalya Kalkan hosts thousands of tourists every year from all over the world, especially in Turkey. It is a must-see holiday destination with its summer houses with wonderful sea views, boutique accommodation facilities, colorful bougainvillea flowers covering the walls of almost every house, clean turquoise beaches with blue flags, fresh air stemming from olive trees, and historical beauties surrounding it.
There are no city remains or settlements of this period in and around Kalkan, which is located in the lands between Antalya and Fethiye, where the Lycian Civilization lived about 3000 years ago and where numerous cities were established. It is believed that Kalkan was founded 150 – 200 years ago by merchants from the Greek island of Meis, which is nearby. Being a reliable port throughout history, it has maintained its importance as a port where agricultural and forest products coming from Elmalı-Gömbe-Bezirgan regions are marketed and loaded, but after the 1970s, with the opening of the Antalya highway, maritime trade weakened and almost ended.
Kalkan Natural Beauties
For many years, with the effect of transportation difficulties, it could not gain vitality like the surrounding districts and protected itself. It has been discovered especially by British tourists in recent years. An intense foreign population led by the British has settled in Kalkan today. Despite this rapid development, the part where the old texture of the city spread towards the mountains on which Kalkan leans has been preserved.
