Moonwater is a light and airy villa just a short amble away from the closest beach club, Palm Beach (300m). Bifold doors lead out enticingly from the ground floor living areas and well-equipped kitchen, onto a spacious pool terrace adorned with vivid eye catching, colourful bougainvillaea and oleander. There are four en suite bedrooms, all with air conditioning over two floors, each with access to sea view Juliet balconies. One of the second-floor doubles even has a feature skylight window to admire the stars.

Add to this, Moonwater's proximity to the centre of Kalkan town and old port (1km) makes it an ideal Turkish holiday villa. The walk may be done in approximately 15 minutes where a multitude of cafes and restaurants to suit most palates are on offer. Why not join the locals and take a stroll in the cooler evenings through Kalkan’s narrow streets to people watch and browse the bustling boutiques, a haven for shoppers.

Further afield a day trip to the town of Kaş (25km) along the pretty coastal drive is a great excursion, or perhaps experience a gulet trip for the day where food and drink are included and the local skippers will take you to idyllic bathing spots along Turkey's Turquoise Coastline.

Terraced outside areas mean that young children will require supervision.

Great Things to Do Near Moonwater

A ‘must see’ is the ancient site of Xanthos

It was one of the six principal cities of Lycia and it is one of the most remarkable archaeological sites in Turkey and has been registered in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list. Of note are the pillar tombs (unique to Lycia) and the Harpy column tomb with frieze. The 'Harpy Tomb' is so called as it was believed that the winged women figures in the frieze were harpies - monsters from Greek mythology with the head of a woman and the body of a bird.
 

Canoeing on the Xanthos river

Enjoy a fun day river canoeing on the Xanthos river. You can travel across ancient Lycian lands of lush and tranquil nature. The ride is downstream, so it's not hard going. The journey ends at Patara beach with time for a swim.
 

Take a drive to Kas

Enjoy wandering around the narrow cobbled streets of the historic town centre.  They are lined with small shops selling local products.  Look up at the overhanging balconies with their bright and colourful bougainvillaea spilling over.  The main square is the focal point where tables are laid out inviting one and all to enjoy a refreshing drink or delicious meal of fresh, local produce.
 

Drive down to the stunning beach of Patara.

It's part of a huge national park, it is a key biodiversity area, rich in birdlife and the breeding ground of the endangered loggerhead turtle (caretta caretta). Only about a 15 minute stroll from some of the major ruins, even in the height of the summer it is never crowded. The absence of development and no water sports means that it is always peaceful.
 

Explore the backstreets of Kalkan

Wonderful atmospheric narrow streets that house a mixture of shops, coffee bars, restaurants with traditional overhanging wooden balconies above.  Enjoy having a wander around.
 

Explore the Saklikent Gorge

It's the second-largest (20 km long) gorge in Europe, with spectacular scenery and 4 kms of the gorge is walkable. Outside the gorge, restaurants have wooden platforms suspended just above rushing spring waters - great places to relax on Turkish rugs and cushions with a beer. You have to cross the water - beware, it's knee deep and fast flowing. Wear swim shoes - these can be hired if you don't have any.
 

Visit the Lycian sites

at Myra, where you will be able to explore the spectacular Lycian, Greek and Roman ruins of this ancient city, including one of the best preserved amphitheatres and spectacular rock tombs. Entrance to St Nicholas Church is available, but as an optional cost.
 

Mountain trekking

Trekking in the Taurus mountain range you will find some of the most beautiful scenery.   Below the tree line and winter snow are the yayla (highland plateaus). Trek through canyons, gorges and passes - many of these gorges were important trade routes, some still in use, some completely forgotten, though all at one time jealously guarded.
 

Enjoy fresh trout in the famous Islamlar restaurants

Islamlar is famous for its traditional trout fishing industry so make sure you sample the local produce just a short drive away.
 

Stepping down to Kaputas beach

In an unspoilt, idyllic setting, Kaputas Beach, much smaller than Patara, is only accessed by 192 steps down - so make sure you can manage the climb back up at the end of the day!
 

Sticky delights

Try one of the rich, gooey Turkish pastries, rich in honey, raisins, nuts and cinnamon and layered in Filo pastry - along with a Turkish coffee to clear the palate.  Kalkan's harbour front is the best place to enjoy this indulgence!
