Kalkan News

The much enjoyed open air cinema down at Indigo Beach Club has just a couple of weeks to go before the box office closes for the final time this season.

This Thursday 20th September sees the screening of the classic 1990 film Ghost starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore

When you get to a certain age you start making lists.  If you're not there yet trust us on this - one day you will.

If you were to write a list of reasons why you would come to Turkey what would you include? The friendly people?  Sunny climate?  Shimmering turquoise sea?  The food?

This year in Kalkan lots of people are trying to do more to protect and preserve our environment.  On Saturday 15th September members of the Eco Kalkan Group organised Kalkan’s participation in a global event - World Clean Up Day

It was the eighth Mouse Island Swim on Saturday 15th September, which this year was organised by local search and rescue team AKUT.  This is a voluntary organisation that has teams across Turkey.  The Kalkan/Kaş team was established in 2015.

The Monetary Policy Committee of the Central Bank of Turkey (CBT) met yesterday to review interest rates.  They decided to increase their base lending rate by a massive 6.25% to 24% - more than the markets were expecting.

President Erdoğan issued a decree on 13th September 2018 stating that property sales and rental agreements must be conducted in Turkish lira and not in foreign currencies.  

They say nostalgia is not what it used to be, but expats who have been around for a few years and who need to deal with residency issues are about to go on a trip down memory lane (aka the D400) as the closure of the Foreigners Department in Kaş means a 170 kilometre drive to our alternative designated office in Kemer, near Antalya.   It's like turning back the clock - Kemer is where we used to have to go before we got our office in Kaş.

Kalkan is taking part in the World's Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support on Friday 28th September.

The event will take place at the Old Town Cafe on Süleyman Yılmaz Caddesi starting at 10.00.

If you are in Kalkan next week and are looking for an interesting day out you may want to consider a day trip to the nearby Greek island of Meis (Kastellorizo).

Thursday 13th September is Liberation Day on Meis.  Normally the island is a sleepy backwater where nothing much happens but on this day they hold a ceremony at the harbour that is attended by the great and the good - including VIPs from the Greek mainland.
