Kalkan has several beautiful beaches, some of which are sandy whilst others are more pebbly. The shallow shores are famous for its crystal clear waters and gentle waves that are ideal for all sorts of water sports. Along the coast there's a large variety of water sports to get involved in including jet skiing, parasailing, banana boats, diving and snorkelling. For a slightly different water experience and for a refreshing break from the summer heat, try your hand at river tubing and drift through the beautiful surroundings of the Saklikent River. Go canoeing in a group directed by experienced guides or enjoy a relaxing day floating on a canoe down the nearby Xanthos River. Journey downstream the tranquil setting of Patara Beach where you can swim in the sea and indulge in a tasty BBQ lunch.
