The Beach -Cirali beach is a clean, unspoilt, wide, 5-km long strip of sand with the clear blue waters of the Bay of Olympos to one side and the lush green of the groves of orange and lemon trees to the other.
The beach was witness to many famous myths and legends. It saw the birth of Apollo and Athena. It was the stage of the battle between the hero Bellerophon and the monstrous fire-spitting chimera and it saw him and his flying mount struck down by Zeus when they tried to fly to the top of Mount Olympus to challenge the jealous god in his own home. It features the ruins of the port of Olympos, where ships from all over the Mediterranean used to drop anchor during ancient times. Olympos was a member of the Lycian League, an organization that may have been one of the first true democracies of the Western world.
And finally, ÇÄ±ralÄ± beach is the favorite place of the Caretta caretta, a species of marine turtle that returns here every summer to lay its eggs in the warm sand. During the early morning hours in early September, you may even observe the young turtles emerging from their eggs and making their way to the sea.
The waters of the Bay of Olympos are free of harmful algae and poisonous jellyfish.
Because of its natural beauty and historical importance, Cirali beach is probably unique in the world.
