One of our favorite discoveries was the town of Kalkan on Turkey’s southwestern coast. During our road trip which started from the Mediterranean heading to the Aegean sea, our plan was to stop along the coast wherever we liked most. After staying a night in Kas we arrived in Kalkan, which is a former fishing village that has still kept a lot of its charm especially in the old town. We loved discovering little shops and a new restaurant each night and wandering the streets was really romantic. It's such a relaxed place compared to some other coast towns that completely mesmerized us and we definitely want to go back there one day. Maybe then we'll get around to go diving, it's supposed to be amazing.
The little hotel we stayed at and the people who run it made our stay that much more memorable. If you ever end up in the area, look no further than the White House (or the adjacent Courtyard). During our road trip we never reserved a room in advance since we wanted to be spontaneous and this little tipp from our Lonely Planet turned out to be a true gem.
