Water Sports on the Turquoise Coast

Scuba diving in KalkanHolidays at Kalkan offer so much to do, but the sea is the best place to be in the summer, and diving is becoming more and more popular (as are all water sports in Kalkan Turkey). The Kalkan Dive Centre, around at Kalamar Bay, is a PADI five star dive resort, and offers recreational dives and PADI courses. You can even walk from the villa to the Kalamar Beach Club, home of the Kalkan Dive Centre. There are also several dive centres a half hour's drive away in Kas; it's an extremely popular pastime in this area of Turkey. The underwater flora and fauna are wonderful. You don't have to go far to see fabulous sites, such as the Blue Cave near Kaputas
