Nomadic walk 2016

Kaş and Kalkan will be promoting this beautiful part of the Turquoise Coast, in Tourism Week, starting on Monday 16th April.

In this article, KTLN brings you news of what will be happening during this week, including the wonderful nomadic walk from Delikkemer to Patara - always a great day out.  

Monday 16th April: Launch of Tourism Week
The official launch takes place in Kaş,
 with a procession, starting at 17.15, walking from outside Migros supermarket, down to Republic Square, (where the statue of Atatürk is located).

There will be a ceremony in the square, with local dignitaries, which will incorporate singing, poetry reading, traditional folk dancing, and a local handicraft exhibition. The last boat on the Kaş harbour side, will be hoisted back into the sea, ready for the tourist season.  (See below for Kalkan boats).

Tuesday 17th April: Patara Beach clean up walk
Your chance to enjoy a great walk along Patara beach and at the same time do something positive for the environment.  Always a fun day.  We depart from Kalkan bus station at 10.00 with the intention of starting our litter picking walk on the beach at 10.30.

Please see this KTLN report for more details of this event: Join the Patara beach clean up - Tuesday 17th April 2018

Friday 20th April: Tourism Sector Meeting in Kaş
There will be a public meeting at the Belediye meeting salon in Kaş, starting at 17.00.  Whilst the meeting may be of most interest to those involved in the tourism industry, anyone is welcome to go along. 

Saturday 21st April Nomadic walk from Delikkemer to Patara
10.00: The nomadic walk sets off from Delikkemer to Patara, with a traditional picnic on the way.

Nomadic walk 2016

For Kaş people transport wıll be available at 09.00 in front of the main Kaş Belediye office.  The bus from Kaş will stop off in Kalkan on the way, in front of the old Kalkan Belediye building.  The bus will depart from Kalkan at 09.30 and arrive at the walk starting point in Delikkemer at 10.00.

In the past the authorities and locals in Patara have been very good at organising transport back to Kalkan after the event.

To find out more about the walk please see this KTLN report from an earlier year: Delikkemer to Patara nomadic walk and picnic 2016

Kalkan boats
We don't know for sure what date the boats will return to the water in Kalkan.  Last year it was around 26th April and we expect it to be a similar date this year.

Monday 23rd April: National Sovereignty & Children's Day
Technically this falls just outside Tourism Week, but it's a date for your diary as there may be a few celebrations going on in Kalkan and Kaş.  We are awaiting details.
