Çıralı is located just an hour drive away from Antalya and is another world compared to the tourist hub.

You can also walk among the ruins of Olympos, an ancient city of Lycia, which can be found at the far end of the beach.
An 18-kilometer beach, Patara is another gem of the Antalya region that is worthy of exploration. The soft sand and shallow sea make it a frequented spot by the Caretta Caretta sea turtles who come here to lay their eggs. Here you will also find the remains of the ancient empire of Lycia. The restaurants serve local cuisine, and you can book a room at one of the family run pensions.
Accessed by walking down a considerable number of steps from the main road, the beach is located in Kaş. This beach known for its golden sands and crystal-clear azure waters is largely untouched except for sunbeds and umbrellas laid out in the summer. Make sure to bring your own food and drinks.
A hidden beach in Datça, Ovabükü is rather calm and is surrounded by greens with a long stretch of sparkling sand and dark blue waters. You’ll find pensions to stay here and many eateries with excellent food run by locals. The locals call the area heavenly bay.
