I joined KTLN because your website offered the most detail and latest information - and in an upbeat manner - of any site I've seen so far. I love the web cams, local news, business info, things to do, etc.

Kalkan bus station (the otogar) is positioned slightly out of the town centre, below the petrol station.  It can be accessed from two roads - Kaş Road and Şehitler Cadessi (the main road in and out of Kalkan).  See our interactive map of Kalkan, which can be accessed from the Main Menu.
