Responsible tourism: Cirali beach accommodation, Turkey

Cirali beach is a popular nesting site for the endangered loggerhead sea turtle, known locally as Caretta Caretta. Protecting them may also save the area from major development. We donate £5 of your booking fee to the Ulupinar Conservation Coop who protect the turtles and monitor their activity. Thanks to these donations, we soon hope to equip the Coop with infrared video cameras and GPS systems to help them better document their valuable work.

On the beach patio all lights are covered and dimmed and there are no radios or TVs to disturb egg-laying turtles.

Owner Ahmet is committed to conservation and protecting the local environment, he is a founding member of 'Friends of Cirali' an organisation striving to steer Cirali on the path of sustainability. His hotel maintains high standards of responsibility with regards to its operation. The cottages have been constructed so as to work in harmony with their surroundings. They are 70% constructed from recycled wooden barns.

Food produce is sourced from local farms, many of them certified organic. Your stay here directly benefits the local farming community too! Local people are employed full time by the hotel for operational tasks and airport transfers.

Spending time together, playing on the beach with our two year old daughter, napping on a hammock, walking through Olympos and eating fantastic fresh food!...It was an incredible experience and holiday. We were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary and it was brilliant! Read full review

The highlight was definitely watching the baby turtles hatch and make their way down to the sea. Also witnessing the dedication of the Cirali Beach turtle rescue team. Who were endlessly patient with all the tourists who wanted to experience the turtle hatch. Read full review

The beautiful location, the peace and quiet (except for the dawn chorus of cockerels which drove us mad!) and the relaxed atmosphere were most memorable...When we wanted to be active there were good choices - bikes to ride and explore the area, sightseeing in the locality, boat trips, the Lycian Way for walking.

When we first arrived at Arcadia, after a long bumpy hot taxi drive, we found an oasis of fruit trees, animals and beautiful bungalows. Very rarely does a place actually look better than the brochure - it was like the Garden of Eden! Read full review

The policy of no TV or even radio, with no intrusive lighting at night (amazing star scape) and the fact that the food from their kitchen was absolutely great, meant that it was very tempting not to leave the grounds for the whole holiday. Read full review

The rooms were light with views of the mountains and clear white fresh linen and towels in a pine clad spacious thatched bungalow. We tried food around the area but always found nothing could beat Arcadia’s delicious meals and its organic principles. Dining on the beach was fantastic day and night, so romantic. Read full review
