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.

Get in[edit]

by car[edit]

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.

by bus[edit]

All buses operating between Antalya and Adana and all the way to Southeastern region cities have to pass via Aydıncık, though it is not certain if they accept passengers for Aydıncık.
