The near-twin villages of Olympus and Çıralı sit on a piece of lovely coastline surrounded by the ruins of the ancient Lycian city of Olympus. The famed attraction here is the chimaera – a naturally occurring eternal flame that flickers out of the rock cliff above. Olympus is popular with young backpackers and has a bit of a party-reputation while Çıralı is more laid-back and all about chilling out on the beach. Both are perfect for anyone seeking a beach holiday well away from Turkey’s purposely built-up tourist resorts.
