It is a very small rural village located just over an hour's drive southwest from Antalya and has a 3.5 km secluded beach, the ruins of Olympos, the flames of the Chimaera / Yanartaş, as well as being a protected area by the WWF for the nesting of caretta, also known as loggerhead sea turtles.
Also near Çıralı is the Ulupınar region, which is rich in rivers and creeks. Çıralı is one of the last untouched natural areas along the Antalya coastline.
Highlights of the Lycian Way with paths are also found in Çıralı. One runs from Çıralı to Tekirova (19 km), and another travels from Çıralı to Ulupınar and then back down to the flames of the Chimaera, which is around 12 km. All these trails and paths are marked in red and white.
There are no large hotels but numerous small places with accommodations, such as family-run pensions.
Although close to Olympos, it is not possible to drive between Çıralı and the road in Olympos, as they are separated by the beach and the ruins of Olympos.
