Çıralı is a small and pretty village in the middle of Antique Lycia. Olympos antique city which is one of the most important cities of Antique Lycia is located on the right side of 3.2 km Çıralı beach. Chimaera (Yanartaş) which is the unblinking fire of Antique Lycia is located on the left side of coast on the cliff which is just behind the village. The fire continues to burn even today. The meaning of Lycia is “The Country of Sun”. Chimaera is the unblinking fire of the Country of Sun. This region which hosted many civilizations in history is located where many mythologic heroic stories took place. With its historical texture, deep blue sea, undisturbed nature and organic agriculture which supports tourism Çıralı comes to the fore.

Alongside being away from industrialized mass tourism and being a coastal village where family hotel, pension and restaurants are located, Çıralı is an important breeding field in Mediterranean Sea of the sea turtles whose kind is caretta-caretta which are endangered and therefore put under protection. WWF and Society of Protection of Nature are applying protection programmes for caretta-carettas in Çıralı.
