The town is served by D400, main highway between Antalya and Adana. The road to east (to Silifke) is wide and smooth, whereas road to west is narrow (two cars can cross side by side though) and very winding.


There is a supermarket near the yacht marina, not affiliated with any chains, and the prices are almost the same as anywhere else in Turkey. They accept credit card payments if the total sum of your purchase is more than YTL 3.00 (~€ 1.50/~US$ 2.10), otherwise cash only.

There are two ATMs in front of the ticket-office at the port where the ferries leave for Cyprus; they look out of place and battered, but accept foreign cards and are in working order.


There are guesthouses/hostels (pansiyon) near the shore/yacht marina. There is also a 4-star hotel in the west exit of the town.


The telephone code for Taşucu is 324.
