Recover the Romance on Holiday in Turkey

A country that radiates charm and intimacy, Turkey is the perfect place to go for a romantic getaway. Kalkan hotels can provide you with the ideal hideaway where you can spend some undisturbed time together, away from the stresses and strains of life back home. Reignite your relationship in this ultimate romantic destination.

Bask on the Beach

With clear waters and dazzling white sands as far as the eye can see, the beaches in Turkey are some of the best around. Most Kalkan hotels tend to be quite close to a beach, so you will never be far away from a fantastic place to relax. The warm sea is ideal for a gentle dip, after which you can lay back on the sand and enjoy the blue skies above you. Slightly outside of Kalkan, are two of the most stunning beaches – Patara and Kaputas. Patara Beach is part of a national park and home to the Loggerhead turtle. Take a romantic stroll along the beach and you will see a wonderful variety of wildlife and birds. The beach closes in the evening to give the turtles some privacy, but it stays open just long enough for you to lay back and watch the beautiful sunset over the ocean with your partner. Kaputas beach is somewhat smaller and can get slightly busier. However, with the most brilliantly turquoise waters in Turkey, no matter how crowded the beach gets, you cannot help but feel transported. The perfect place to spend some time away from civilisation, the beaches in Turkey will not only help you relax, but will inject plenty of romance into your holiday.

Go on an Adventure

What better way to spend some time with your other half, than to set off on an adventure together? Many Kalkan hotels run excursions on which you can explore various places of interest. Arguably the most impressive of these is the Saklikent Gorge. Often described as ‘the hidden city’, the gorge is the second longest in Europe and is a fantastic place to take in the fresh air and enjoy the great outdoors. Four kilometres of the gorge can be walked, or for those who really want an adventure, there are tour operators that run canyoning trips and river tubing in the gorge. If you feel you’ve earned yourself a rest, sit back in one of the small restaurants set up on platforms, suspended over the water, and enjoy some local fare with a cold beer. See the more exciting side of your relationship with an adventure you are not likely to forget in a hurry.

Have a Candle lit Dinner

Though the restaurants at Kalkan hotels are known to serve fantastic Turkish fare, there is nothing quite like the intimacy a candle lit dinner at a roof top terrace restaurant. Dine with a view over the bay as you watch the sun set over the water. The majority of restaurants offer starter buffets that incorporate a selection of meze dishes, so that you can share a range of dishes. More often than not this will be followed by a fish dish, consisting of that afternoon’s fresh catch. After your meal, if you fancy a night cap, you may well be offered a glass of raki, a strong aniseed drink which you can enjoy reclining on an ottoman or watching the restaurant staff partake in traditional Turkish dancing. By the end of your meal you will have had a true taste of the romance on offer in Turkey.

Even the best of relationships occasionally need an infusion of romance, and there is no better place to find this than Turkey. Give your partner the time and attention they deserve while you stay in glorious Kalkan hotels, soak up the sun on the fabulous beaches and dine out in the exquisite yet traditional restaurants, and you will go home closer than ever.
