    Apart from a thunderstorm and a shower during one day, it was very good weather.

    Stunning !!! Weather wa gorgeous without it being uncomfortably hot. The daily temperatures ranged from 31 to 35 degrees whilst we were there.

    Holiday

    Great, a relaxing villa holiday on the outskirts of the town. The views from the Villa were great and the old town itself was very picturesque.
    The restaurants are generally nice but we had a diabolical experience at one called Paperazzi. Would strongly recommend Ramis which had a family restaurant feel but professional approach to the service.
    Wouldnt recommend hiring a car to drive from the airport as almost without exception the drivers are lunatics !!!

    Beautiful sunshine every time we have been. In May, July and August, not a cloud in the sky. Although there can be a breeze in the evening but this is quite welcome.

    Holiday

    Stayed in private villa's, apartments and hotels and have never been disappointed. People are friendly and helpful. Kalkan is beautiful and at the moment unspoilt.

    The weather was very hot for the first two weeks in September. The temperature was in the high 30's throughout the holiday. The sun came up around 7.15 and went down again at around 7.30.

    Holiday

    We spent two weeks in a villa with a pool and a beautiful view of the bay. We were burgled the first night we were there and the horror stories from the police suggest that this wasn't just a one off. Apparently there were six villas that were broke into that night.

    If there is no safe in your appartment or room then I would recommend that you take all valubles (including passport) with you werever you go.

    We were two couples on holiday that all love to travel, here there is plenty of places to visit therefore a car was essential. The food was great and overall we did have a good holiday in the end.

    I would also be aware of power/water problems.

    Fabulous weather hardly saw a cloud in the sky in the two weeks we were there at the end of August and beginning of September.

    Holiday

    Best holiday we have ever had, can't recommend it highly enough. We have just got to go back.

    We have only put a single star for the nightlife because thankfully there was very little, though plenty of wonderful rooftop restaurants.

    Don't go if you are looking for a certain kind of nightlife, but we weren't.

    The people were warm, friendly and genuinely helpful

    Weather

    This was our first ever visit to Kalkan, where we spent a fabulous two weeks at a private villa at the beginning of June 2009. The weather was glorious hitting 41 degree a couple of times.

    Holiday

    Our surroundings were amazing. Fantastic views that you would never tire of. Wildlife wandering around the garden, (lizards) and the birds drinking from the swimming pool when they thought no one was watching!! The sun setting slowly over the sea as we sat on the roof terrace. By far the best holiday we have ever been on. No loud music, no cars and no other people within close proximity. If you want to get away from it all then hire a villa on the Taurus Mountains. Perfection.

    We have been to Kalkan six times now at different times of year. We know it does rain, but we have never witnessed a drop. The lovely breeze coming off the sea blends in nicely with the beautiul sunshine.

    Holiday

    We enjoy the luxury of a villa situated above the town, so have beautiful sea views. The town is growing with expanded tourism, with more people discovering the gem of Kalkan, it is getting busier, but nothing takes anything away from its charm.

    Beautiful weather cooler at this time of year but still swimming pool weather but with the added bonus of being cool enough to explore the many things around the area .
    Lovely later in the year but does get very hot and of course busier.

    Holiday

    This is the third time and i dont think it will be the last. The people of Kalkan are really friendly and helped to make our holiday one to remember the food in the restaurants is wonderful never had a bad meal yet.
    Shopping until midnight in the really nice shops is fun and the quality of goods is generally high.
    Night life is low key centered around the restaurants with 1 hotel doing Turkish nights and 1 disco that i know of, though there may be more.
    I have 2 children and they love it here they are 15 and 9 now but they dont miss the big water parks etc they love snorkeling off a boat we hire for a day and many other water sports that are available
