The Kartin supermarket is the perfect place to get some warm fresh bread for breakfast, delicious olives or to restock the fridge with wine and beer.
There are various internet cafés in Kalkan, ask Tamer Köse (Kalkan Property Maintenance) our local partner when you are in Kalkan.
Post Office and Banks
You are well served with a Post Office and six Banks – each with a twenty four hour 'hole in the wall' to get extra cash from.
Restaurants and Shops!
You'll be spoilt for choice. The main street is full of restaurants, cafés and bars; just a very short stroll from the shops – Enjoy!
Atlantis Turkish Bath
Strangely, even the most relaxing holidays can be tiring - all that lying around in the sun can take its toll!
While in Turkey, why not have a Turkish bath? If you’re in the need for some serious pampering - a massage, aromatherapy, pedicure or manicure at the Atlantis. Simply walk down to the Kartin supermarket, turn left, go up to the Yali general store and you’ll find Atlantis welcoming you on the ground floor of the building. Enjoy!
Stunning Drive from Kalkan to Kas (and of course back again!)
The Sunday Times scored this short fifteen mile drive to be one of the best coastal journeys - not only along the Mediterranean but anywhere in the world. It is that special. The views of the famous ‘turquoise coast’ are simply breathtaking, twisting and turning around the numerous bays including the beautiful picture postcard Kaputus Beach. It’s not to be missed.
As a destination Kas doesn’t disappoint, bigger than Kalkan and internationally recognised as an historic site with Lycian tombs built into the surrounding hillsides. A car is easy to rent (just ask Kalkan Property Maintenance) or alternatively jump on board a local bus (called a dolmus).
In fact buses, if you don’t fancy driving are a great and inexpensive way to get around, going frequently to all the nearby locations including the world famous seven mile long Patara Beach, which is about ten miles from Kalkan.
The Local Beach
A short stroll down the hill past the shops towards the picture postcard harbour, take a left turn at the harbour and you'll find Kalkan beach. There are many cafes just yards behind you to keep you refreshed and well fed - there's even a swimming platform to swim out to, to work up an appetite.
Umbrellas and sunloungers can be hired for the day at a very modest price.
The Local Market
Every Thursday there is a very large street market. It's a good idea to visit the market before you buy from the local shops.
Fantastic Ice Cream Parlour
For some tasty ice cold refreshment, there's a great ice cream parlour in the village.
