Kalkan beach makeover and new pontoon

Kalkan town beach has had a bit of a makeover.

The man made beach requires a little management from time to time as the natural action of the waves can reduce the space available for sunbeds and create quite a steep slope for swimmers entering the sea.

A KTLN reader is appealing for help in trying to locate her bag and smart phone.

It was stolen on Kalkan beach on the evening of Wednesday 4th July.  That’s 24 hours after England beat Columbia in the World Cup.

Electricity alert:  CLK Akdeniz Enerji has announced that the local power supply is going to be switched off whilst essential work is undertaken on the network. 

Details are as follows:

Date: Wednesday 11th July 2018

Time: Between the hours of 06.00 and 16.00 (10 hours). 

Location: SAHiL BEZİRGAN; KIŞLA; ULUGÖL MEVKİLERİ.  (Coastal Bezirgan; Kışla; Ulugül areas).  Other parts of Kalkan are not affected.

Article updated 4th July: Dalaman is the most convenient airport for people visiting Kalkan.  According to KTLN surveys over 90% of Kalkan visitors arrive via this airport.

Back in 2015 work began on building a new international terminal at Dalaman.  The old domestic terminal was demolished, with internal flights temporarily managed alongside overseas flights within the international terminal.

The first concrete of the new terminal was laid in August 2016 and the finished complex, costing some 250 million euros was originally due to open in April, but that deadline was missed.  It is now set to open on Wednesday 4th July.

The Consumer Prices Index (CPI) for June 2018 has just been published and it shows that inflation in Turkey has ballooned to 15.39%.

Throughout 2017 inflation was mostly in double digits - typically just above 10%.  This latest increase from 12.15% in May to 15.39% in June is particularly unwelcome, especially as the Turkish Central Bank’s target is just 5%.

Towards the end of this month Kaş Belediye is organising a number of events under the banner of the International Kaş Lycian Art & Culture Festival.

This is the 21st time it has been held.  This time it’s over three days - starting on Friday 29th June and ending on Sunday 1st July.

A group of 56 suspected illegal immigrants from Afghanistan and Pakistan were detained by the Kalkan Coast Guard at Gerenlik Beach yesterday Tuesday 19th June. 

This is the mud bath beach visited by many Kalkan day trip boats that lies between Fırnaz Bay and Patara.
