Create an itinerary including Cirali Beach
Secluded Cirali Beach remains free of high-rise developments and big crowds largely thanks to its status as a protected area. Home to a population of endangered loggerhead turtles, which swim ashore to lay their eggs in the sand, the beach offers a 3 km (1.8 mi) stretch of pristine Mediterranean coastline. This area offers few modern facilities, but you can find several simple but cozy restaurants and inns at the nearby village of Cirali. Spend some time watching the turtles and swimming, and then consider exploring the area's ancient Lycian ruins. To visit Cirali Beach and get the most from your holiday in Olympos, create itinerary details personal to you using our Olympos trip tool.

  • A perfect place to chill and relax, with a quiet atmosphere. The beach is nice and clean, with a beautiful mountain vue. In september, it wasn't crowded at all.

  • Quiet beach with amazing views. Some really nice restaurants there too.. Would have been great to see the turtles hatch but had just missed some.

  • Most stunning relaxed beautiful beach we have visited. The setting with the mountains is so gorgeous. A real must if you like to see rural chilled slightly bohemian Turkey, away from all inclusive...

  • Çirali Beach is probably the better spot to see the sunrise over the ocean in winter because at Olimpos Beach the beautiful coastal mountains may obscure the sunrise, although directly after sunrise this again offers good backdrop. Both beaches are very secluded due to the off-the-beaten track location of Çirali. There are also deck chairs and umbrellas at both beaches that seemed to be free to use.
  • Clean water with stone beach. No sand at all. But the view and ambiance are nice. It can be overcrowded in the high season.
  • Beautiful beach with mountous back drop, late September great time to visit as its out of season and very quiet.
  • one of the most beautiful beaches
  • One of the few sand beaches I've come across and not crowded at all.
