History of of Kalkan
In the past years, Kalkan was the only port between Kas and Fethiye and in this sense it was important. In the 19th century, the importance of this port gradually increased. About 150 to 200 years ago, Greeks and Turkish people chose this city to live, and at that time Kalkan was known as Kalamaki.
The Greeks called this city by this name. At that time, when there were not so many means of transportation, they used camels to travel and bring goods. Camels brought goods to this city from the path of the Xanthos valley and the heights of the mountains near Elmali. The main communication route of Kalkan with other cities was through ship and sea. All kinds of agricultural products, including grain, cotton, timber, and wine, were sent to faraway places in the Ottoman country by ship.
