Much loved Kalkan on the Mediterranean coast of south-west Turkey sits around two bays, Kalkan and Kalamar, both much like an amphitheatre, with many homes boasting the best seat in the house, in terms of stunning panoramic sea views.
Exclusive Holiday Resort
Kalkan belongs to the Antalya province, with quite a distance from both Antalya and Dalaman airports, though the closer connection to Dalaman means that many of the Kalkan visitors choose Dalaman as their arrival airport rather than Antalya as the transfer time is much shorter.
This, and the fact that much of the Kalkan area is protected green belt land, means that Kalkan has kept its charm, beauty and authenticity by not being over commercialised with mass tourism and huge developments due to very strict building regulations, which has resulted in Kalkan gaining an exclusive resort title, attracting discerning visitors.
Types of Property in Kalkan
Real estate in Kalkan offers properties ranging from modest apartments to luxury seafront villas and if you have the budget some villas come with a private beach in certain areas, or are perched on the surrounding hillsides offering lots of privacy and spectacular views of either Kalkan or Kalamar bays or if you are lucky both bays sit within the picture.
A new trend with Kalkan apartments is private pools rather than shared pools, with some amazing penthouse apartments with private rooftop infinity pools, a fantastic idea for anyone who can’t quite the luxury of a private villa.
If you are an investor looking to buy property in Kalkan Turkey, you can expect a high return on your investment as rental yields are extremely high, rising with each type of property, and with ever rising prices capital appreciation is also very favourable.
A high factor to consider when purchasing property in the Kalkan area for investment purposes is the view available from the chosen property, you may pay a little more initially, however, you will feel the benefits in the long run with the rental yields received
Some of the more desirable properties in Kalkan are located in the Kisla area, sitting near the harbour and close to the beach. Some of these luxury villas sit at the seafront and have their own sea access via platforms where you can hop on a water taxi and sail across to the harbour in just five minutes. Kisla also boasts one of the best spots in Kalkan to enjoy the stunning sunsets
Ortaalan translates as the ‘middle area’ aptly named as its sits between the two bays, quite elevated enjoying views across both bays, the harbour and the local islands that seem to float on the Mediterranean waters. Ortaalan is a newly developed are where you can find the newer modern and contemporary designed Kalkan property for sale, popular due its close walking distance to the resort centre and all its shops, bars and restaurants, which is a big factor when searching for accommodation for sale in Kalkan, due to the steep climb to some homes in the area.
Preferred by some for its close proximity to the centre, another popular area is Komurluk, one of Kalkan’s more established and elite areas with some lovely traditional style stone clad houses that sit right at the sea front with amazing views, and some that sit slightly elevated having some of the best views available in the area, with not only the sea but the harbour too, as quite often accommodation in Kalkan, Turkey can be hidden form the harbour due to the contour of the land.
A growing area that has become popular for holiday homes in recent years is Kalamar Bay, sitting within walking distance to Kalkan centre. Property’s here can be picked up at slightly lower prices than the areas above, though prices are increasing steadily as some amazing luxury homes have been developed right at the beach front with private beaches.
The Kiziltas area sits above the main road through the town, where homes boast the most dramatic views over both Kalkan and Kalamar Bay. Property can be picked up here at surprisingly lower prices as most Kalkan lovers tend to prefer to be closer to the centre of the town.
