Bareboat Yacht Charter & Sailing Holidays in Turkey

Sailing Holidays in Turkey


By Stef On July 1st, 2018 in Anchorages, News & Events

A small peaceful Mediterranean resort and fishing town on the beautiful Turquoise Coast of Turkey, 

Kalkan curls snuggly around a historic harbour sheltered at the foot of the towering Taurus Mountains.  The town overlooks a beautiful bay in which islands seem to magically float upon the shimmering sea.

Narrow streets twist down to the harbour, lined with old whitewashed villas with shuttered windows.   Overhead hang original carved Ottoman Greek timber balconies garlanded with thick masses of brilliantly coloured bougainvillea. It is a very special place with a unique atmosphere.

Besides the famous “Kalkan Style” historic architecture, the many excellent restaurants of Kalkan contribute to the special atmosphere within Kalkan.  Kalkan is said to have the highest number of restaurants and bars per inhabitant or square meter on the Turkish coast (over 100 of them!).  Kalkan is renowned in Turkey for its numerous roof terrace restaurants and bars which offer a wonderful view of the town and sea  It’s nice to sit at one of the many fine harbour-side restaurants and watch the pleasure boats and fishermen leave early in the morning as you eat your breakfast, or see the fishing boats return with the day’s catch in the evening.
