Travelling by car or Dolmus, only 6 km from Kalkan, the sharp bends that twist and turn tightly around the cliffs lead you to a dramatic rock formation and the mesmerising turquoise blue waters that cannot be missed from the road.
Kaputas beach is popular with tourists and locals due to its natural untouched beauty. It can be reached by descending the 170 or more steps from the road, which can leave you somewhat breathless - or this could just be due to the magnificent view that awaits you!
For those seeking a beach with a dramatic backdrop, the Kaputas Gorge - a magnificent deep canyon set amongst the cliffs on the opposite side of the road to the 150-metre-long pebble and sandy beach - will not disappoint. The canyon was formed over thousands of years by the flowing waters of a waterfall. A walkway can be reached from the beach under a bridge, but only when the water is at low levels or dried up. Kaputas Gorge is about 200 metres long and the vastness of the steep rough rugged walls is spectacular.
The rustic charm of Kaputas beach is captured whilst languishing lazily on your sunbed, soaking up the atmosphere and the sheer enormity and vibrant colours of the earthy terracotta rock face staring back at you.
There is little shade on this beach although some umbrellas are available at a small cost. The rolling waves have a strong undercurrent and when the wind is up it is easy to misjudge the strength of the undertow; only strong swimmers would be advised to take on the mighty waves. Entrance to the beach is free. There are toilet and shower facilities, a café bar and some changing huts.
Kaputas is the perfect place to relax and unwind. On a calm day when there is a slight breeze rippling over the gin clear water, the reflection of the sun glistening like gems, the local boat trips that stopover for swimming, the muffled sound of voices and the humming of the waves in the background make this a little piece of sun soaked paradise.
