Cirali - a quick geography/nature lesson.
80 minutes south of Antalya, this secluded coastal village is nestled into a pretty half moon shaped bay down a steep winding road 10 klm’s off the main highway (only one road in, one road out). Very little development is built upon or near the beach as this is a primary nesting ground for the Mediterranean turtles. A 100 metre zone of trees, orange groves and other vegetation provides a buffer parallel between the beach and the hotels. This vegetation buffer shields the manmade light (hotels etc), and as the turtles hatch at night they are guided by the moonlight to the sea rather than be drawn inland to other light sources. So endith the lesson.
Spend a couple of minutes with Sinan (the owner) and you quickly realise why Hotel Villa Monte gets the great reviews that it has. An extremely friendly, genuine, helpful and hospitable gentleman that wants to ensure you get the most out of your stay in Cirali and at his comfortable B&B. Our room was spacious and clean with a modern bathroom and satisfied all our requirements. Breakfast in the gardens or outdoor room was fantastic with typical Turkish fare of fruits, tomatoes, egg plants, eggs or whatever your request.
With Sinans help we easily filled our 3 day stay with many walks, swimming in the crystal clear sea, boat trips, car hire and much more.
100 metre walk to the centre of the village for restaurants, shops and travel agents.
150 metre walk through orange groves to Cirali’s coarse sandy and pebbly beach (don't expect powder white sand).
500 metre to southern end of Cirali beach and Olympos ruins.
4 klm walk to the famous Chimaera eternal flames.
20 klm drive to amazing Phaselis ruins.
20 klm drive to stunning mountains.
Great location, great accommodation, great people, will recommend to our friends.
