Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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 hotels, to enjoy the views, the atmosphere, cycling around the area, smelling figs, olive groves in mostly flat terrain.

Çıralı has a very clean sea. We chose "Karakuş" beach and sunbeds were free. We only paid for what we ordered. It has a Cafe, showers, toilets and changing rooms.The service was a little slow but the staff was very friendly and kind. You can go to Çıralı in an hour from antalya(konyaaltı) by car. Or you can take a bus. There is a camping area very close to the sea shore if you're interested.

It has a mixture of cobble stones and sand as well. It is covered by the hills from the western and party southern side, but in the afternoon you can have here a nice wind. Parking places were full to the top on Saturday, no wonder, this beach has a lot to offer.

An hour away from the bustling Antalya and right next door to ancient Olympos, you’ll find the relaxed resort of Cirali. Nestled between pine-clad mountains and the deepest blue sea this beach is not only one of the most peaceful in Turkey, it's also a major nesting site for the endangered loggerhead turtle.

If you want to see a place were time has stood still in Turkey and experience what Turkey used to be like about 15 to 20 yrs ago before the influx of all-inclusive and package holidays of the last decade, then Cirali is the place for this

The beach of Cirali is a wonderful secluded 4km beach with a mix of sand and pebbles. The perfect family atmosphere and relaxing get-a-away from the typical holiday resorts in Turkey.

The beach of Cirali is also a protected area by the WWF for the nesting of the Caretta sea turtles. These Turtles lay there eggs in May and June and then the baby turtles hatch mid-July to late August. You can go down to the beach in the early morning hours in the summer months and watch the hatchings . Also on boat trip available from the beach of Cirali you can see adult caretta sea turtles swimming in the sea.

This beach is great for snorkelling, seakayaking, boat trips and generally chilling out. There are a few restaurants on the beach that do offer sunbeds and umbrellas along with bathroom facilities. The restaurants do not charge for use of sunbeds and umbrellas, however it is only politle to buy a couple of drinks or a snack to use the sunbeds.

I will start with the negatives and they might be the prejudice of one who grew up in a town with miles of golden, sandy beach, but this beach is largely pebble interspersed with grey sand and it drops off rapidly in depth. This can be painful to the foot and worrying for poor swimmers. The positives: little tide, gentle currents, glorious vistas, easy access and plenty of space. The southern third is easily reached from the village of Çirali and is backed by a wonderful array of beach bars and restaurants. Using the bars entitles you to free use of their sun beds and most bars have toilets (again, for the sole use of their customers). To the very Southern end is the entrance to The ancient ruins of Olympos but that's a trip in itself. The northern two thirds are accessed from the road and offer few, if any, watering holes but is even more peaceful and just as beautiful. Take an umbrella as the sun is merciless and no matter where you are the sand gets blisteringly hot so take shoes you can walk to the sea in!

Pristine - one of the best beaches for swimming in the whole of Turkey - crystal clear water - lovely quiet beach. Choice of small area with sun loungers and the rest is just all empty! Fabulous.

kind of wild yet all you need closeby. just loco business ( food and accommodation). no loud low quality music on the beach... good organic cheap food, nice people wherever you go... modest but clean rooms...if you are backpack traveler you will love that place, if you are 5 stars hotel kind of person better think again before you will go there. for me was idyllic. i love that area!

Cirali is one of the best preserved beach with small bed and breakfast hotels operated local families. Boat tours, beautiful beaches, crystal clear Mediterranean, home of caretta caretta turtles (beach closed 8pm to 6am for turtles during july and August season)

Cirali has also Olympos mountains from greek mythology where Chimera lived. You can hike this mountain to have natural fire and do marshmallows or even cook some sausages and sandwiches if you take those with you.

Cirali is best for people and families who are looking for a quite holiday without nightclubs, no discotheque or loud musics.

Since this is an area without big resorts and hotels, it is recommended to rent a car or arrange a transfer van from airport to enjoy an amazing holiday in this small fisherman town next to ancient ruins, water sports, economic hotels..

This town is also known its famous ice cream called Memo Ice Cream..try the different flavors such as cinnamon, bubblegum, goat milk, ..it is right next to beach..too good to be true taste.
