Kalkan - Turkey Kalkan
Kalkan is a village on the Turkish Mediterranean coast that has become an important tourist destination. The area includes many historical sites and many fine beaches. Kalkan is an old fishing village that was the only safe harbor between Kaş and Fethiye. It is famous for its white-washed houses descending from the steep hills to the sea and its brightly colored bougainvilleas which flourish from the 300 days of sunshine each year. Until the early 1920s the majority of its inhabitants were Greeks but they left in 1923 during of the Exchange of populations between Greece and Turkey after the Greco-Turkish War. These Greeks emigrated mainly to Attica where they founded the new town of Kalamaki. Kalkan was an important harbour town until the 1970s being the only seaport for the area. It declined after construction of the Fethiye road 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. Kaputaş Beach is a long beach between Kaş and Kalkan in south western Turkey. It is located at a distance of 20 kilometers from Kaş and 7 kilometers from Kalkan at a point where an extremely narrow valley towered by steep cliffs and forests joins the sea shore in a cove of the same name as the beach - Kaputaş. The beach is quite popular among tourists to the region due to its untouched natural beauty commanded by a view from the heights traversed by the scenic Kaş to Kalkan road. There are no regular amenities at Kaputaş Beach except for vendors who set up small stands selling snacks during the day. The beach is reached by stairs descending from the road and is guarded by the municipality of Kalkan. It is a favorite stopover for yachts along the Blue Cruise even though the open sea and at times the cove itself can be quite unstable and wavy. The sea gets deep rather close to the beach in Kaputaş.
