depending on what you want ..big hotel, all -inclusive ? or boutique hotel..

it sounds like Cirali would be the perfect place for you to relax and inwind... Cirali is a small village located about 1 hours drive southwest from Antalya ( 1.5 hrs from the Antalya airport ) and boasts a beautiful secluded 4 km beach, the ruins of Olympos, the flames of the Chimeara, as well as a protected area by the WWF for the nesting of the Caretta sea turtles.

No mass tourism or 5 star hotels. Small shops, quiet bars, restaurants, and no discos. It is more of a place for nature lovers and chilling out. ..

also you can look at my photos for ideas

the only draw back would be that Cirali does not have a lot of shops.( ıt soes have some shops for souvenirs, small supermarkets etc ) .but there are places nearby if you really want to go shopping or go to Antalya for shopping.

Cirali is much more rustic compared to the flashy resorts on the antalya coastline..It offers an eco-friendly and back to nature holiday

so it really depends on what you want for your holiday..also Cirali was mentioned recently again this month in the Guardian Travel section..

otehr alternatives could be Dalyan however there are no accommodations on the beach and you have to take a bus or boat to get to the beach, Ole Deniz might be an option..Cirali is the quietest location out of these 3.
