Kalkan is a beautiful resort and fishing town on the Turkish Mediterranean. It receives many foreigners and British in specific, who eventually decide to settle down in this lovely village.
Kalkan is said to resemble the Italian Riviera which makes the place attract moree sophisticates tourists (as well as residents).. Visitors also say it is quite unique in the way it looks.
The town overlooks a beautiful bay in which islands seem to float upon the shimmering sea. Narrow streets twist down to the harbour, lined with old whitewashed villas with shuttered windows situated alongside small local specialty shops and restaurants in historic buildings.
Overhead hang original carved Ottoman Greek timber balconies garlanded with thick masses of brilliantly coloured bougainvillea cascading to the streets below.
