The Mahal Beach Club
Set in a beautiful area in Kisla, shaded by olive trees, the Mahal Beach Club is constructed of platforms that have been built into the side of the hills. Overlooking the sea, the superb water is kept clear by underground springs which continually pump up clear water. There is no shortage of sun beds on offer meaning that every visitor gets their own private space to enjoy catching the sun.
There is a restaurant on the water front providing a welcoming place to get some refreshments or a bite to eat. For those who are restless or want to be doing something there is a vast array of water sports available.
The only way to get to the Mahal Beach Club is by taking a water taxi which is available from the harbour. It is only a short journey and the water taxis are operated on an as needed basis all through the day, so there is never a long wait.
The water front is divided into two separate parts, one for the hotel guests and the other which is open to all. There is a nominal charge made to enter the Mahal Beach Club however some holiday packages do offer this complimentary, so worth checking. There are also a small collection of detached villas within the Mahal complex and from time to time they come to market as resale offers. If you are considering a holiday home in Kalkan seafront, then keep an eye out for Villas for sale in Mahal.
The Mahal Beach Club offers a plethora of exclusive facilities at an additional cost such as the following:
