The Olympos Coast Antalya
Places to Visit in Olympos Coast
Adrasan and OlymposTake the Highway 400 from Kumluca, that twists up into the Beydaglari National Park with its outstanding pine forested ridges and steep bare cliffs. Hidden away at the canyon mouths and plunging toward the sea are two Lycian, fairly unspoiled, beach resorts Adrasan and Olympos / Cirali .
Five IslandsBeyond the cape are the Bes Adalar (Five Islands), these islands are treacherous shipping hazards and have caused many ship wrecks. Buses or taxis can only get about 3.5km along the dirt road leading from the pebbly beach towards the cape.
AdrasanAdrasan the peaceful beach resort, around 22km from Kumluca, lies within the borders of the Beydaglari National Park and because of this has helped to stem the flow of over development here. There is a bus from Antalya that goes directly there once a day arriving late afternoon and returning 0700 the next morning. A wide range of pansiyons, hotels and restaurants are available here. Boat trips go to Ceneviz Harbour (Limanı), a bay beyond Musa Mountain (Dağı) which is inaccessible by foot.
