Dalyan - Kalan
Dalyan was originally a countryside village of fisherman and farmers but is now one of the smaller sized, yet ever popular, tourist towns on the famous Turkish south coast Riviera. The historic town of Kalkan is an enchanting place and one of the most beautiful locations along Turkeys gorgeous Lycian Coast. With the absence of mass tourism, Kalkan remains a charming and unspoiled haven of lush nature, brilliant, blue crystal-clear sea, historic architecture, ancient history and warm traditional Turkish hospitality.
