Step back in time on this family activity holiday to the the idyllic south-west coast of Turkey. You can't fail to fall in love with the beautiful beaches of the Lycia, but it's the culture and past civilisations of the area that will really captivate adults and children alike.
Staying in a small comfortable hotel in the charming town of Çirali, enjoy a boat trip to see the sunken city of Kekova. Active members of the family will also have fun gorge scrambling, kayaking, swimming and snorkelling in the crystal clear waters.
There's also a wide range of optional activities to choose from such as rock climbing, a Turkish bath, pony trekking, scuba diving, climbing, zip-wires, and a Lycian Way walk.
Fly to Antalya and transfer to your base in Cirali, a quiet, family-friendly beach resort in the region of Lycia, home to the Toros Mountains.
After a free morning to relax at the hotel or nearby beach, head out for a walk through the ruins of Olympos’ ancient city to the beach to collect your kayaks. After a safety briefing, take your kayaks out into the bay and paddle along the coastline to Ceneviz Bay, exploring secluded inlets, coves and creeks.
Today is free to choose one of the many optional activities available from the hotel such as rock climbing, or simply relax by the pool.
