Aydıncık is a small town (population: about 7,000) in southern part of Cilician Mountains, Mediterranean Turkey. Its former name was Gilindire, which comes from the name of the Roman city modern town of Aydıncık replaced: Kelenderis.
The town is served by D400, main highway between Antalya and Adana. Although these are two of Turkey’s biggest cities, and D400 is classified as a highway, the road to both directions is narrow (wide enough for two cars passing side by side though) and very winding.
There is a very nice open-air tea garden next to the little wharf. It is like an oasis with its shading trees in the peak of summer heat. A (small) glass of tea costs YTL 0.25 and a cup of tea costs YTL 0.50 there.
The telephone code for Aydıncık is 324.
