Kalkan Limanı is on the NE corner of the bay. It affords adequate sheltering up to 30 boats from the southerlies. Strong southerlies send swell in. There is 5 to 9 m depth in the inlet. The bottom is sand. Anchor fore-and-aft, as there is little room to swing here, and try to avoid entangling your anchor with those of the craft lying on the opposite quays. The municipality manages the port. Bilge charge discharge service is provided. There’s an additional fee to take a shower. Water and electricity connections are available. Laundry service is also provided. Fuel is obtained from a tanker truck. Provisions are available from the markets. Bank ATMs, cargo companies’ offices, pharmacies and State Clinic are within the town. Snorkeling facilities are impressive around the bay. Diving tours are arranged.
