Romantic Kalkan

Kalkan provides an idyllic setting for a honeymoon destination.  What are the qualities that make it one of the most romantic places in the world?

Just think of gorgeous scenery, your own villa with private swimming pool and vibrant orange sunsets. Do not forget a stunning view of the Mediterranean coastline and sea, romantic restaurants with slow music and candle lit tables, slow walks down cobbled paths of the old town and a variety of things to do.

Kalkan is already popular with Turks as a honeymoon destination and in the last five years, many Brits and Americans choose it as the place to celebrate their new union.


Honeymoon in Kalkan, Turkey

Sail the Turkish Riviera

A honeymoon in Kalkan will certainly evoke memories of passion, romance, and fun as you remember the warm weather, amazing landscapes, and time spent together in a serene location. The aquatic beauty of the Mediterranean Sea often encourages everyone to spend a day sailing the coastline to visit small bays and secret coves. Spend time sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and enjoying a fresh BBQ lunch on board. If you want privacy, that is not a problem either because you can hire your own traditional Turkish gulet boat.

Stroll and Shop

The many side streets of the old town will introduce honeymooners to seductive sights and sweet smelling scents from the bougainvillea lining the old houses displaying typical Greek architecture. Creative couples will enjoy the local art gallery while small boutique shops present a wealth of handmade and traditionally Turkish souvenirs to take home.


Romantic Nights

Nighttime love is the theme in Kalkan when restaurants light the candles in their establishments that are softly decorated to provoke an intimate ambience. Many rooftop terrace bars and restaurants serve a variety of international cuisine, and also provide opportunities for the best photographs for the wedding and honeymoon photo album. Read our articles about restaurants in Kalkan.

The Sunday times voted it as one of the world best walks and you can hire a guide or head off together, to go where the path takes you.
