Kaputas and Kalkan
Turkey Weather | Turkey Pictures | Turkey Map
Kaputas is a gorge with a small shingle cove beach under a bridge
crossing the gorge, a precipitous set of steps up/down to the beach and
a steep drop off not far off shore into the deep blue depths so watch out for kids.
Kaputas is about 30 minute dolmus
(bus) ride from quaint Kas and 10 minutes from the hill village of Kalkan.
email from Blodwin52, UK: Kaputas is a fantastic beach, incredible waves when we went. Only think is beware if you have small children as the beach shelves quite steeply and the waves can be really strong. Both myself and my youngest had a scarey moment where we thought we were in a tumble dryer!! However, I cannot recommend the beach highly enough - it is just lovely - make sure you go at end of day (after 4) as not so busy and the temperature is okay then. If you want somewhere to go on to eat from there, the Ada Restaurant further down from Kaputas has the best views ever. It is very basic but the fish is freshly caught (he brings you his catch in a bucket to choose) Our meal was fab and they cannot do enough for you (killing wasps with his bare hands!!!!) Reasonable price too as we found the restaurants in Kalkan were slightly rip off.
Kalkan Beach. Next, Olu Deniz beaches
Kalkan is a hill town with
colourful restaurants and terraced bars overlooking the not particularly
attractive yacht marina, a small pebble beach and a couple of beach clubs around the bay.
Kalkan beach clubs offer varied watersports options including including banana boats, pedalos and giant trampolines in the water.They are a fair distance from upmarket hotels that occupy the hill above Kalkan, a 20 minute walk to town. Some hotels operate a collect and drop off service and others do free water taxis from the harbour where the town pebble beach is.
