Adrasan - Turkey Adrasan
South of Cirali is the resort of Adrasan at Çavuş Bay. Now officially Çavuşköy - it was formerly called Adrasan before its status changed from being considered a village to becoming a city. It is a quiet laid-back destination with not much more to do except swim, sunbathe, drink a cold Efes Bira or take a boat trip to neighbouring Ceneviz Limanı.

It may not be as picturesque as Olympos since the long strip of beach is backed by an unpaved road on which a succession of hotels are situated - even though small and mostly hidden from the beach they were mainly designed to support a package-holiday boom that seems to never have come to pass. But, even so it still has the quiet charm of a Turkish village before the deluge of visitors forces big changes.

To make the most of your stay here having a rental car is not a bad idea. By having wheels visitors always have the option of staying in Adrasan where it's quiet and peaceful, but also have the option to take in other attractions around the bay in Olympos or Cirali.

Adrasan straddles the famous Lycian Way, which makes it a fantastic location for hikers. At the northern end of the Cavus Bay, Beşcam Dağı (English: Five Pines Mountain) towers over the beach and separates Çavuşköy from the ancient Olympos. It’s a difficult climb up the mountain and certainly not for anyone who is not in good condition. Another walk in the opposite direction takes you to the twin lighthouses of Taşlık Burnu (English: Cape Gelidonia) and is less strenuous, but still involves a lot of uphill and downhill trekking.

The modern town of Çavuşköy lies two kilometers inland from the beach but is anything but exciting - with its most noteable feature being a rather out of place statue of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk clad in opera cloak and hat.

The Paradise Café is an appropriately named restaurant with tables set up on wooden walkways over the river that can be found by strolling along the river that runs inland from the northern end of the beach. At the The Paradise Café you can recline on cushions on a wooden kösk (Turkish: Çardak) or eat at a regular wooden table set up on a dock-like platform. Dining on a hot day is quite pleasant while sitting over the cool water. The Paradise Café also offers a few simple rooms which seems mighty convenient, otherwise, of the hotels backing onto the beach the best choices might be the Ön Hotel or the Sazlık China House, with its odd line-up of Chinese lanterns above the entrance. At the southern end the Ford Hotel is a well designed small hotel with wooden balconies like those in old Kalkan looking out over a pool with Beşcam Dağı as a backdrop.

Adrasan has remained relatively quiet and peaceful because access by public transport is fairly dismal. In the peak summer months there are a couple of dolmuşes each day to Kumluca 18 kilometers distant. There you can connect with public transport all along the coastal road between Antalya and Fethiye. During non-peak season times of year there is often no public transport, leaving one to hitch a ride or pay an expensive taxi fare.
