What to do and see in Cirali, Turkey: The Best Places and Tips

July 15, 2017 Velvet Champine

The biggest attraction here are the flames coming out of vents in the mountainside. According to legend, the monster Chimera, which had three fire-spewing heads, was chased by the Lycian hero Bellerophon on his winged horse Pegasus. He killed the monster, but the fire-spewing heads fell on the mountain where they still burn.

Cirali Beach

Reviewed By ordinarylife - Cambridge, United Kingdom

Beautiful, natural, clean beach.
Part protected during nesting season for Loggerhead Turtles.
Coarse sand and pebbles. Recommend swimming shoes for more comfort, but not essential. Swimming shoes available to purchase in the village.
Gentle slope from shore to deeper water.
Very long beach, so no crowding.
Sun loungers opposite beach cafes are free of charge, and each cafe will serve food and drink to you at your sun lounger, if desired.
Family and child-friendly with relaxed atmosphere.
Sea in September is silky warm, crystal clear, turquoise. No big waves, great for swimming and snorkeling.

Olympos Ruins

These ancient ruins, dating back to the second-century B.C., are all that remain of an important Lycian city that became abandoned in the 15th century.

Reviewed By devonlass28 - England, United Kingdom

Stay on the path and you'll take a fairly rough, but flat meander along a ruin flanked lane straight to the beach. Stray off it and you'll find yourself exploring ruins worthy of Indiana Jones, particularly if you head over the water. For the venturesome, there's some gems to be found, and some interesting wildlife to be spotted. Take water, insect repellent and a walking pole to make the most of it....

Phaselis Antique City

Reviewed By Elle H - Sheffield, United Kingdom

Came here as part of the Thomas Cook "Sea to Sky Tour". Loverly place to walk around and look at the ruins, lots to look at with 3 Beaches including a sandy beach.
Recommend taking shoes to go into the water as still a lot of stones. Also take your own food and drink if needed as very limited choice to buy at the shop.

Myra Antik Kenti

Reviewed By Rod F - Royal Wootton Bassett, United Kingdom

Of ancient Myra, little remains now but the theatre and the rock-cut tombs, but these are exceptional. The theatre is of Roman type, very well-preserved, and with a fantastic collection of theatre mask friezes, although not in situ. The later Church has wonderful frescoes.

A stunning walk if somewhat tiring! The views were beautiful and the snow tracks meant we couldn't get lost.

As a first time diver i was a little scared but the team at Olympos Diving were incredibly professional and experienced and I ended up experiencing diving in the clear blue Mediterranean sea with my mind at ease! I had a perfect diving experience with the friendly, professional staff and a great boat I could relax and enjoy the views on after my dive :) I highly recommend visiting Olympos and Olympos Diving Centre if you're traveling though Turkey! :)

Rock tombs in Myra

Reviewed By monsiserrano - Toronto, Canada

This is one of the interesting places we visited. While Istanbul is far away from Demre and we had to take the plane going to Izmir, and then drive several hours to reach this wonderful place. It's one of a kind and the ancient way of burying the dead would make you imagine how difficult it was for them. Very impressive and it would be good that since you are already in the area to visit the Saint Nicholas of Myra (known as place of Santa Claus) which is just few minutes away. There are Russians selling beautiful ref magnets, medieval knights and other stuff, but a little bit expensive. Try their freshly squeezed pomegranate and you will love it. :-) I really wanted to go up to the tombs but it's restricted.

Chimaera

A series of flames that spurt from cracks in the rock, which are caused by the combustion of natural gas seeping out of the mountain at the ancient site of Olympos.

Reviewed By Lukajoreb - Sutton Coldfield

This place is mildly interesting but I don’t really understand why everyone seemed so excited about it! There’s quite a pull to get up to the flames and when you do arrive....well, there are some flames coming out of the rocks. And then you go down again!
