Travel: Kalkan in Turkey

by Jane Hayward on Thursday, 4 August 2011

Kalkan's authentic cobbled streets and charming fishing harbour are a cinch for a Turquoise Coast treat. And it's still hot in September – even into the 30s – but with refreshing sea breezes.

Where to stay The Elixir Hotel is an intimate, natural-feeling boutique haven with sea views. Seven nights from £559pp B&B, including flights and transfers. Visit

What to do Soak up the laid-back atmosphere on the marina, or take dolmuses (shared taxis) to Kaputas and Patara – Turkey's most famous beaches.

Eat and drink Harbour-view restaurants such as Mussakka serve lemony seafood with a buzz.
