Kalkan has two distinct sides: on one hand it has fine restaurants and excellent hotels to match its superb, steep views of the Mediterranean Sea. But prices have been scaled up for the many ex-pats that have moved here, and regulars complain that the recent explosion of foreign-owned vacation villas has changed the town's character for the worse. With only a small, rocky beach, a few narrow blocks of whitewashed stone houses, and not much archaeology of its own, Kalkan is trying hard to develop its tourism offerings. Despite its growing overexposure, it's still a decent base for touring the area and the surrounding sites.
