Cirali has two main attractions, and a lovely seaside setting to present them in. The first attraction are the ruins of the city of Olympos, and the second are the rare loggerheads sea turtles that come here to nest on the beach, a mix of sand and pebbles.

While some visitors to Cirali are here just for the ruins, the turtles, or a nice seaside break on the Turkish Riviera, some of them are passing along the Lycian Way, which passes though the town.

This area doesn't have the large resort hotels that have sprouted up along the coast, most visitors stay in family guest houses in amongst the surrounding olive groves and orchards.
