    • Cost of living for 2 week hols

      by susanc0104 Online Now Jun 15, 2014 at 12:55 PM

      In August I am embarking on my first holiday abroad in 10 years with my 2 teenage sons. We will be staying in a self catering villa with family. Can anyone give me an idea of how much spending money would be needed for 2 weeks. I should imagine we will mix eating out & eating in, a few sightseeing day trips some water sports and regular holiday stuff. Thanks in advance

    • Kalkan or Dethiye

      by Sheila49 Online Now Nov 14, 2013 at 4:52 AM

      Hi. Having returned twice to Hillside Beachclub in Fethiye, we wonder about September 2014, trying a smaller hotel experience, perhaps Kalkan Regency in Kalkan. We would take two weeks hopefully combining a few days gulet cruise. We are attracted to Kalkan because one of our favourite places is Fiscardo in Kefalonia, and we are told Kalkan is similar? I would like to ask re. Restaurants in Kalkan, are the food options varied enough for 2 weeks? Secondly, if we select the Kalkan Regency, we have free access to Mahal Beachclub. As we have not used a beachclub before, could you tell me what to expect? Thanks.

    • My unease at being pestered to go into Bars and Restaurants in Kalkan.

      by paddleschaucer Online Now Dec 19, 2011 at 6:45 AM

      Am I alone in not wanting to be hassled into going into bars and restaurants by staff? Is it a cultural thing because on principle we never go into places where staff are paid to stand outside and beg us to eat there? More business would be done if U.K tourists were left alone. Now money is short sometimes you only want a drink but there is big pressure so we do less promenading the way one does in Spain and France. After eight wonderful holidays there we are trying to avoid feeling constantly uncomfortable by choosing to go back to Spain next year instead.

    • Kalkan season start

      by LauraHerts Online Now Dec 5, 2010 at 11:38 AM

      Hi Kalkan experts,
      Inspired by the great pages on Kalkan and the surrounding area to think about holidaying there this Easter (10 days from 22nd Apr 2011).
      However, I wanted to check that places like restaurants, bars and trip companies will be fully up and running at this time as I realise a lot of things shut up shop over the winter. Does anyone have any experience of Kalkan this early in the year and can give some advice about whether our holiday will be limited by chosing to go early?

      Thanks for any advice!

      I suppose this is a general Turkey question but I've posted it here since my holiday will be in Kalkan in Sep 08. Is it better the exchange British pounds in Turkey than in UK? I heard you get a better deal if you exchange in Turkey, if that's the case, where's the best place to do this?

    • Transportation in Kalkan/ Dalaman?

      by Macies Online Now May 8, 2008 at 8:17 AM

      Hi Everyone,

      I am a new member and have read through most of the responses and they are all very helpful. Most of the information I've found has come from this website.

      I am going to Kalkan and flying into Dalaman first. What is the best way to get to Kalkan? Drive or private airport transfer? Would it be better to rent a car for our whole stay in Kalkan (5days). We hope to visit Kas, Kekova, the Gorge etc. I believe there are buses, dolumuses but I'm just worried that they don't run too frequently. On the other hand, not sure how the driving/parking is and especially the 2h transit time from the airport to Kalkan. Any suggestions would be helpful. Please advise and thanks for your help! Happy Travels!
