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 it's also a bit overpriced, and regulars complain that the recent explosion of foreign-owned vacation villas, which are often rented out online, 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.
