The Persians, Athenians and Romans each had their hold over the Lycian region and the jaw-dropping remains of architecture are scattered throughout the area.  The famous Lycian Way traverses the area with its deserted beaches, lush forests and the tallest of peaks.

Once occupied by the Ottoman Greeks, Kalkan attracts a discerning mix of visitors and has managed to retain that most elusive of mixtures – an authentic Greek ambience with the relative sophistication that makes it unusual, charming, picturesque and above all, uniquely welcoming. Strict conservation laws ensure that the heart of the village remains unaltered.

Amenities include: excellent healthcare provisions (medical centre, dentist, doctors, pharmacy), well stocked supermarkets, butchers, fishmongers, banks, post offices, internet café, excellent Thursday market.
