Silifke & Taşucu Transport, Turkey

Because of their commercial importance, Adana and Mersin have good transport.

Airports

The two nearest airports to Silifke and Taşucu are Adana’s Şakirpaşa Airport and the Gazipaşa Airport between Alanya and Anamur.

Train

Adana has the most active train station, and there are local trains along the coast to Mersin, from which you can take buses or minibuses to Silifke and Taşucu.

Ferryboat

Although Taşucu is a traditional ferryboat port for Girne(Kyrenia) in Turkish Northern Cyprus, it can be quite difficult to get any information on whether ferries are operating, and if they are, when, and at what fare. Akgünler Denizcilik has schedules for these ferries, but all is in Turkish only. More…
