The apartment is in the Ortaalan area (central) of Kalkan.
Honestly you do not need to take masses of baggage, because you really do not need much, and anything you forgot can be bought locally anyway, so don't waste money paying airlines for baggage you just do not need
Historic Sites Nearby: It is within easy reach of Myra, Pinara, Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon, Patara, the Saklikent Gorge, and Kekova. You travel to Kalkan via either Dalaman or Antalya airports, and then by private air-conditioned transfer (90 mins).
When you are in Kalkan you can spend the day on the pebble beach, sit by the pool, or visit the beach club. If however you are feeling energetic you can arrange a jeep safari, a boat trip on one of Turkey's famous Gulets, go diving or fishing, perhaps trekking, sailing or paragliding. Jeep safari's are a must!

Other Things To Do: You could of course spend the day at one of the 4 Turkish baths, or visit one of the many Turkish Barbers, or just go shopping in one of the Old Towns' many shops. Sit and have a drink in the harbour and watch the boats come in! Spend the evening eating and drinking in one of the many super restaurants or cafes. There are variety of bars, some having blues / jazz or belly dancing. You could of course arrange a moonlight boat trip with dinner on board.
The South West Aegean and Mediterranean coast of Turkey has now become the holiday destination of choice for Europeans. This is not only because the people are so friendly, the food is so good, and because Turkey has a fantastic climate (Season March through November) but also it is very secure and safe. Oh and did we mention that you get really good value for money? Turkey not only provides super beach and activity holidays but also a wealth of archaeological sites from the Lycians to Byzantine, Roman and Greek ruins.
Dalaman Airport - Warning!: The new terminal at Dalaman Airport is very expensive ref: food soft drinks beer etc. We would suggest that you take these type of items with you for your return journey.
We also advise that you do NOT change money on the way in to Dalaman Airport as the rates are NOT good, we suggest you change money in Kalkan.
