Kalkan is a small but rich town built on the hills near Kalkan Bay Harbor of the Turkish Mediterranean coast. Once a struggling Greek fishing village in the 1920s, it became a high-end tourist playground, one of 2007’s best tourist destinations. After the 1922 Greco-Turkish war, the Greek residents abandoned the town and moved to Attica. The ancient Greek houses still stand in Kalkan today. Since then, it surpassed Kas, its neighboring town, with the proliferation of superb restaurants lining its picturesque coastal beaches like Kaputas and Patara Beach. It’s famous for its white-washed homes built on the hills, sloping to the sea surrounded by a lush landscape decorated with bright bougainvilleas. The development of luxury villas continues uphill every year attracting moneyed tourists and resident holiday seekers.
