Besides the famous Kalkan architecture, the many excellent restaurants contribute to its’ special atmosphere. Kalkan is renowned for good dining and is believed to have the highest number of restaurants and bars per inhabitant or square meter on the Turkish coast (over 200 !). Kalkan is especially famous for its numerous roof terrace restaurants and bars which offer a wonderful view of the town, sea and stars, and the Harbour. There are also many fine harbour-side restaurants to watch yachts returning after a days sail and fishermen leaving early in the morning as you eat your breakfast, or see them return with the day’s catch in the evening. There is lots to do during the day and nightlife is fun, but laid-back. The nightlife n Kalkan is sophisticated, entertaining but not noisy or wild like in some other coastal resorts.
