Olympos is part of the Olympos National Park and used to be one of the most important Lycian sites in ancient times, having a major port. Euremedos sailed from here to the Black Sea. Olympos can be reached from the main street via a small road, which guides visitors over serpentines through a magical and idyllic landscape, alongside a beautiful stream surrounded by stone pines, oleander and jasmine. Although little remains from historic Olympos, Cirali and its ruins are definitely worth a visit. The location is unique, with steep rugged rocks in the background, unspoilt sandy beaches, as well as a turquoise-blue sea.

By rental car
By rental car Since Olympos is only under an hour's drive from Antalya, it is worth making a daytrip to Kaleici, the historic old city of Antalya. Wandering through the picturesque alleys, having coffee in the small marina, and perhaps visiting the museum as well, will all make Antalya worth your while.
Daytrips by boat to small beach coves that are only accessible by sea are also available and offer a relaxing break. Please enquire at your hotel for more information.
