The Turquoise Coast Travel Guide

Olympos and cirali

Olympos and its "sister" towns, Çiralı and Adrasan, are places unique on the Turquoise Coast for their natural beauty, ancient ruins, low-rise development, and easygoing culture that embraces international backpackers, Turkish students, and European families. The trio is also next to some of the best day walks on the Lycian Way, though the Olympos ruins and beach are the main area attractions.

All three towns are accessed via a secondary road, parallel to the highway. Olympos has the most character but can be noisy and crowded in summer and offers limited accommodations. The area above the valley has better places to stay, but you’ll have a short drive to the beach.
