BEACHES

Kalkan Local Beach
The Kalkan area has several beautiful beaches. A very pleasant pebbly public beach with crystal-clear water is located just to the east of Kalkan's harbor; it (and the surrounding water) has earned a Blue Flag award for cleanliness. The water depth drops off close to the shore, so you don't have to walk over the pebbles for long. Many cafés are nearby and sun beds with umbrellas are available for rent.

Kaputas Beach
Gorgeous Kaputaş Beach is a lovely sandy swimming cove nestled at the foot of a striking mountain gorge, about 10 minutes from Kalkan. This is the beach often pictured in travel brochures for Turkey, although it doesn't get crowded as one would expect. The water is always a brilliant color of turquoise. Umbrellas can be hired here and a few enterprising locals sell snacks and cold drinks. Dolmuşes (shared minibuses) make frequent runs to this beach daily from the centre of Kalkan. Quite a few steps lead down to the beach, so take this into consideration if you have a walking problem.

Patara Beach
Part of a national park, is a beautiful 12 kilometer stretch of sand backed by dunes with only a small snack shop/tea house built upon it (it also rents out umbrellas and sunbeds). It was voted one of the top beaches in the world by Times Online - Best of 2005

Some very nice Lycian ruins are a short stroll away, part of the national park. Patara was once an important port city of ancient Lycia and the ruins there are quite extensive. The beach is closed after sunset as it is one of the few places in the world where the endangered Loggerhead turtles come to lay their eggs.

Kalamar Beach Club
(located in a quiet turquoise cove of Kalamar Bay) will provide you with free transportation. They will pay for your taxi upon arrival and give you shuttle service back to your accommodation. Snorkeling is pretty good here - you can see some beautiful fish, starfish and other creatures (snorkels for rent).
