Places to Visit and See in Olympos - What to do in Olympos? The ancient city of Olympos has two entrances, one by the sea and the other by land. 3.5 km from Çıralı. You will see the Acropolis and a monumental tomb on a hill rising on a steep slope on the right, when you begin to visit the ancient city of Olympos, where the beach is at the end, by the sea, the south entrance. It is possible to see many historical remains in the wet area of Olympos, which is flooded by each other. For those arriving by the sea there is a creek bed on the left side and there is a historical bridge from ancient times on the creek. On the opposite side of the building is a basilica belonging to Byzantine. When you follow the road, you will arrive at the other entrance gate of Olympos ruins. If you come back from here again and follow the path, you will be faced with a Roman temple. Here you will see the sculpture kaidisi. The left side of the path is covered with water. The trail enters the ancient waterway after a while, where the monumental grave and two rock tombs will be disappeared at the end of the waterway. At the end of the journey, you come to the Acropolis, where we started again. Since the acropolis is a hilly area, we recommend you to come out here and enjoy the spectacular scenery. The beach of Olympos is also very beautiful. The short beach is full of holidaymakers who lie on the beach all day long and sunbathe and float. Çiralı, a holiday resort right next to Olympos, is worth seeing with natural beauties, orange gardens and a 3.5 km beach. Also Yanartas, famous for its fire burning with the gases between the rocks, located at 230 m altitude next to Olympos, is worth seeing and sightseeing. Here the gas burning between the rocks is associated with a fire-breathing entity in the antique age. It is possible to climb Yanartaş from Cirali by a half-hour nature walk.
