Kalkan is a favorite site for English tourists and honeymooners famous for its summer homes with great sea views, boutique accommodation facilities, colorful bougainvillea surrounding almost every house’s walls, blue-flagged turquoise beaches and terrace restaurants. It is portrayed by the famous historian Herodotus as “the closest place to the stars in the world.” Until 1920, it was called Kalamaki (the Beautiful Cove). It has served as a secure port for many years due to its location. With the opening of the Antalya highway in the 1970s, the maritime trade weakened and ended. As the houses rise up on the slopes around Kalkan Bay, each one has sea view. You can spend a spectacular holiday in Kalkan, where the villa rental system is common.
