Aydincik is a town and one of the thirteen districts of Mersin Province on the Mediterranean coast of Turkiye. It is located 173km from Mersin to the east and 325km from Antalya to the west. This small quiet town in the southern part of the Cilician Mountains spreads along the Mediterranean coast near a small point, Sancak Burnu. Nearby caves are the habitat of Mediterranean monk seals and Mediterranean sea turtles.
The remote coastline extends some 38 kilometres and is mostly unspoilt. Beaches in Turkiye are often pictured with tourists occupying rows of sun loungers. However, in Aydincik, the sandy or small pebbly beaches are quieter and offer visitors the chance to truly appreciate the beauty of their surroundings.
Aydincik public beach has cafeterias and restaurants close by, while Aydincik Nature Park is an ideal place to enjoy the outdoors, and many visitors choose to make use of the camping facilities and pitch their tents among the trees. The beach of golden sand nearby is appropriately named Incekum, which translates from Turkish to 'fine sand' and is a perfect place to swim in the warm turquoise blue waters.
The Mediterranean climate means summers are hot, dry, and clear. Over the year, the area benefits from over 4000 hours of sunshine, with annual temperatures typically ranging between 7 degrees Celsius and 26 degrees Celsius.
There are a number of places of interest to be visited, particularly for those who love history. Aydincik is the site of the ancient Greek Celenderis, a port and ancient fortress. It was one of the best harbours of this coast in ancient times and also a very strong defensive position. The Port Bath dates back to the 4th or 5th centuries AD. The castle on the point and the theatre apparently belong to Roman times. The ruins of the ancient city of Kalenderis are a popular landmark to explore with impressive views. There are also ancient ruins, including a bath and archaeological debris to be found at the landlocked bay at Soguksu. In addition, visitors can see the Mosiac of Aydincik. This floor mosaic was discovered in 1992 and, dating back to the Medieval Age, is an exceptional example of depicting the panorama of the city as it stood in the 5th century. Even older is the large Roman Cenotaph, which dates back to the 2nd century. Known as the Dortayak Cenotaph because it has four columns. It is made of well-cut limestone in a style common to the Roman period. Last but certainly by no means least is Gilindire Cave, which is considered by some as the 8th Wonder of the World. It was discovered by a shepherd in 1999. The cave is 555m long and features a wealth of stalactites and stalagmites, rock, and crystal formations.
