This pretty mountain village in Turkey is located just above Kalkan Bay, at an altitude of 400 metres, with spectacular views towards the bay and Patara Beach. It is a place of bucolic tranquillity, rustic architecture and the dramatic backdrop of the Taurus Mountains – and to live in Islamlar is to experience a way of life truly unchanged in centuries : a rural retreat in the fresh breeze of the lofty hillsides; but also the draw of Kalkan, a short drive down, with its beach clubs, colorful waterfront and diverse heritage. The protected beach of Patara – its fine sands a home to the Caretta caretta turtle – and the hub of Fethiye are also within easy reach.
There are plenty of walking paths around the village including the Lycian Way, and the cooler mountain air makes for a more pleasant experience.Kalkan is only a 15 minute drive downhill however with two restaurants and a mini market within a 20 minute walk this is an oasis from which you will surely struggle to stir.
Turquoise Coast of Turkey, Kalkan has not been touched by mass tourism. More sophisticated than the usual resort town, Kalkan appeals to travelers looking for more than a "sun and sea" holiday. According to the Sunday Times, Kalkan attracts the kind of visitor who would also enjoy Tuscany or the Dordogne. The Guardian likens the town to "the Italian Riviera minus the poseurs."
Because of its great charm, Kalkan has a growing number of perennial visitors who say the town is the only holiday destination they would choose to visit repeatedly. There is simply no other town quite like Kalkan along Turkey's coast.
