Walk along the seafront promenade
There is a long stretch of promenade starting at Cirali Beach. You can walk all the way through Adrasan and out the other side to the historic Olympos. This is a lovely walk which will take around an hour. We recommend resting tired feet at one of the lovely beachfront restaurants nearby.
Learn about wine
Olimpos is located in the Kumluca district, which is famous for its wine. The white village of Ulupinar is surrounded by vines and is home to a wine museum. We recommend organising a guided tour of the museum with a wine tasting, it’s both interesting and fun. If you visit in the first weekend of September, you can join in with the Harvest Festival. This is a huge, raucous party based around the wine production, which is one of the highlights of the year.
