Averages for Kalkan in March
Turkey’s Kalkan is different to many of the other popular Turkish resorts in that it offers far more than just sun, sea and sand. Kalkan is ideal for those who want all of that and more, such as scenic mountains, beautiful Turkish and Greek architecture and some of the best historical sites the country has to offer.
Temperatures in Kalkan start to
pick up in March, edging nearer to the 20 degree mark. Visitors at this time of
year can expect highs of 18 degrees and lows of 7 degrees celsius so it’s
perfectly pleasant for a month so early in the year.
Rainfall continues to drop, though it can still be a bit wet in Kalkan in March. About 92mm is expected to fall, so although it’s probably still a bit early for topping up the tan on the beach, there are plenty of activities in and around Kalkan to keep visitors occupied.
Throw the raincoat on and take a 1.5 hour drive up the coast to the Tlos ruins, just 10 miles north of Fethiye. Known as the ‘home of Pegasus’, this is a very popular and important religious site, as well as a talking point due to its mythical residents. There’s plenty of ruins to explore here, but make sure not to overlook the cliff face tombs (climb to the top for an amazing view over the mountains), the Roman gymnasium and the seven gates.
Back in Kalkan, enjoy an evening at the Gironda Restaurant, Cafe & Bar. Stop in to this traditional Greek venue for a Greek-inspired dinner, or simply pop by one of the outdoor terraces for a coffee or even a glass of wine or a beer.
Stay at Kalkan’s Hotel Fidanka Houses for £54 per night. All rooms are decorated with bare wood walls and furniture, giving the impression of a pine lodge in the mountains. All have private terrace with patio furniture and jacuzzi baths - utter luxury!
