Kalkan is a town on the Turkish Mediterranean Coast, and an important tourist destination. The area includes many historical Lycian sites and many fine beaches.
Until the early 1920s, the majority of Kalkan inhabitants were Greeks. They left in 1923, because of the Exchange of populations between Greece and Turkey after the Greco-Turkish War and emigrated mainly to Attica, where they founded the new town of Kalamaki.
Kalkan is an old fishing town, and the only safe harbour between Kaş and Fethiye. As a result, Kalkan was an important harbour town until the 1970s as the only seaport for the environs. It declined after construction of Fethiye Road (D-400) but revived after the emergence of the tourism industry in the region. Although part of the Antalya province administratively, Kalkan is connected more closely to Fethiye economically and for transportation.
It is famous for its white-washed houses, descending to the sea, and its brightly coloured bougainvilleas. Kalkan averages 300 days of sunshine a year.
British newspaper “The Independent” listed Kalkan among the best tourist destinations for 2007. The paper recommended Kalkan especially for those seeking a romantic vacation and who do not want to travel far from their home country in Europe.
