Kalkan has some fabulous beaches nearby but they don't get much better than Oludeniz, situated on Turkey's south-west coast, with it's pristine white sands and true blue waters. Oludeniz is 83km from Kalkan and reputed to be one of the finest beaches in the world.   

Famed for its breathtaking beauty, Oludeniz has become one of Turkey’s most acclaimed resorts and a popular anchorage for visiting yachts. Throughout the summer months the sky above the lagoon is filled with paragliders soaring off the nearby mountains, the more adventurous might want to give it a go.

The resort itself sits behind a vast crescent of sand and pebble beach, on the fringes of a much larger sheltered turquoise blue lagoon, with magnificent pine-clad hills as a backdrop.

There are plenty of water sports on offer, or you can just laze around on the beach.  Perhaps visit the Dalyan mud baths or Butterfly Valley, home to some very rare butterflies.

The are many bars and restaurants in Oludeniz with an international theme. It is a very popular resort due to it's outstanding natural beauty. The beaches on the Turquoise coast are so beautiful, Oludeniz, Kaputas and Patara being the best known. It is little wonder that people return to Kalkan villas time after time.
