Travel Tips for Kalkan

Packing for Kalkan

by ann500

If you are coming in the mid-summer, pack clothes for hot weather that are light and breathable. In late spring, early summer, late summer and fall, bring some warmer clothes for the evening for it can be cool. A wrap would be good. If you are visiting in the winter, bring some warmer clothes and a coat or jacket. Check a weather website (like wunderland.com - Dalaman is the closest city available) before you leave on your trip. In the evenings, people tend to dress casually but somewhat smart. It is hilly here, so high heels are difficult (and dangerous) - I've seen quite a few women fall down in them going down one particular street. Tampons are available at the Sevil Supermarket and in pharmacies, and sometimes at the Karton Supermarket. You can buy all your basic toiletries in Kalkan at many places, also mosquito spray. Suntan lotion is expensive here, so it is best to bring your own. Snorkeling gear can be bought in town (or rented at the Kalamar Beach Club), as well as swimsuits (I don't know about the prices). You can buy beach towels here too.

Wonderful!

by TheTurkishBrit about The Ivy

The Ivy is new for 2007 and we were very pleased to visit it for the first time. Set on a pretty terrace in the town with fantastic views of the bay, we were very impressed by the stylish decor and the warmth and professionalism of Ozan and Ziya and their staff.
The menu offered an excellent range of Turkish and Asian fusion dishes, using the freshest of ingredients.
Worth visiting for the view alone, the food and ambience of this restaurant are added bonuses! The Ivy samosas: crispy with delicious fillings
Roast Wild Boar: succulent and tasty
Chicken in red wine, fragrant and delicious
Chocolate Brownies: mouthwatering

Calamari and Kofte is to die for!

by Kalkanlover69 about Marina Restaurant

Visited Kalkan again May 2008 and went again to the Marina Restaurant down on the Harbour front. Same Chef as last year, and still the same quality food as last year too. Ambience is good, nothing is too much trouble and all the waiters speak good English. We ate there about 4 times on this holiday and each meal was just perfect.

The Chef remembered us from last year and came over to say hello to us which we thought was fanastic given how many visitors they must have!

Definitely one of the best restaurants in Kalkan for food. The calamari as a starter is in the lightest coating I've ever tasted, not greasy and not chewy. As Turkey is famous for its Kofte (meatballs), they are on most menus in Kalkan, but these are definately the best I've tasted here.

Sidyma

by sandysmith

Sidyma is a less frequented site - which suited us we had the village virtually to ourselves. Its a scenic winding journey over mountain roads - perhaps what puts many off. The road has been improved in recent years, the last section is still a dirt track but quite passable in the car.
The village encompasses part of the long distance hiking path - The Lycian way. We parked in the main square amongst the trees, wondering where to go but soon a lady from the village greeted us and showed us the main ruins of the area - I doubt we would have known where to look without her - she took us over stones walls and fields to proudly show us the ancient relics. Note the double tomb of a father and son, one of the occupants was a court physician honoured by the emperors. Sidyma is totally unspoilt, a rare chance to see a Lycian site much like those seen by the first European explorers. The village of Dodurga has been charmingly built among the remains too incorporating pillars as props in some places. The village mosque has been made out of the stones too and look out for the inscription on its back wall referring to the deities

Saklikent Gorge

by ann500

Saklikent (Hidden City) Gorge is the second-largest (20 km-long) gorge in Europe, the longest and deepest gorge in Turkey. It is such a beautiful place and a great place to visit in the summer because it is so cool and shady inside. 4 km. of it can be walked. Locals have set up small restaurants on platforms suspended over rushing waters in shady places, in the gorge and outside of it, superb places to kick back with a beer! Outside of the gorge are small cafe/bars and some treehouse accommodation. You can also go river tubing on the river that flows out of the gorge. Tours run here from Kalkan, it's not far away, and they usually run in conjunction with visits to other places of interest, such as to Xanthos, Tlos and the famous Yakapark Trout Farm restaurant. A travel agency based in Kas does canyoning in the gorge, you can see their website here: http://www.bougainville-turkey.com/ana/hom.asp?p_act_id=hom&p_color=FEEAC6

Although plastic shoes are rented at the gorge, they aren't too comfortable, so it is better if you can bring your own shoes or sports sandals that can get wet. (you do have to walk through some water in some parts) You might also want to take along a change of clothes in case those you are wearing get wet.

I have more pics at my website listed below.
