A day in the life is great to get to know our Kalkan neighbours and there is so much more. Mainly for me it's the Ten Seond Turkish - you've made it easy for us, so THANK YOU.

Reminder - Kaş Belediye property tax due in May PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 21 May 2018
Kalkan office of the BelediyeJust a reminder that if you own a property in Kalkan you must pay at least the first installment of your local Belediye property tax before the end of May.

For most of us it's not a huge amount and if you want to pay in full you can do so.

Failure to pay at least your first installment will result in a small fine.

You can still pay this tax at the old Belediye office in Kalkan, on Karayolları Sokak (where the Thursday market is).

Help us redesign the KTLN logo for our new look web site PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 19 May 2018

KTLN logoRegular KTLN readers may recall that our current web site is unwell.  For technical reasons we are limping towards the exit with this current site.

But the good news is that we are going to relaunch KTLN with a new look and we have been listening to your suggestions about how we can improve things.  There is still time to tell us what you want us to keep and what we can ditch.

Also it would be great if you could help us revamp the KTLN banner that appears at the top of every page.  We are calling on anyone with artistic talents to have a go at redesigning this artwork.  Maybe that is you or maybe it's someone you know.

Atatürk's Youth & Sports Day - Saturday 19th May PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 18 May 2018

National Youth & Sports Day

If you are wondering why there are flags out all over town it's because tomorrow, Saturday 19th May is Atatürk, Youth & Sports Day in Turkey - a national public holiday established by the founder of Turkey, Atatürk.

It's a day that is dedicated to the youth of Turkey and celebrations often involve a number of sporting activities.

In Kalkan this year the children at the Lycee on the main roundabout in town will be celebrating.  Their programme of activities starts at 14.30 and everyone is welcome to go along to the school grounds and watch.

Marine clean up - Sunday 20th May 2018 PDF Print E-mail

Marine Clean Up

In a year when Kalkan is focusing more on the environment we bring you news of an underwater clean up planned for Sunday 20th May.

Altan Kusat and the team at Kalkan Dive Centre are once again putting on their diving gear and plumbing the depths to remove rubbish and debris that has been thrown into Kalkan Bay. 

They will depart from their base in Kalamar Bay at around 10.00 and will focus mainly on the area close to Indigo Beach Club and the coastline by the road towards Caretta Caretta.

To their great credit this is something they have done for many years - sometimes at the start of the season and sometimes towards the end of the season. But whenever they do it we all benefit from a cleaner environment.

Restrictions on traffic in town and construction season ends PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 16 May 2018

Traffic barriers

The Belediye has today put in place the barriers that restrict traffic in the old town.  From today and for the rest of the season vehicles and scooters will only be allowed in the old town between the hours of 08.00 and 12.00.  This will enable businesses to take delivery of stock and supplies in the morning.

For the rest of the day traffic is prohibited, except for Police, Jandarma, the ambulance and fire services, and the forestry department.  Rubbish lorries will have unrestricted access too. 

Businesses are required to keep the streets clear (free from signs and furniture), for these service vehicles.

Electricity alert: Unplanned power cut Tuesday 15th May PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 15 May 2018

ElectricityElectricity alert:  A power sub-sation malfunctioned at around 09.00 this morning resulting in a power cut that is affecting all of Kalkan.

CLK Akdeniz Enerji initially told us that power should be restored by 10.00 but that has not happened.

The problem at the sub-station is taking longer to repair than anticipated.  A spokesman from the power company was unable to tell us when electricity will be restored.  Let's hope things return to normal sooner rather than later.

Not a good start to the tourist season.
