Taşucu, the port of Silifke, is a pleasant mix of working port and low-key tourist resort with a quiet beach. The town lives for the ferries to Girne (Kyrenia) in Northern Cyprus. Hotels put up travellers, while car ferries and hydrofoils take them across the sea.
The main square by the ferry dock, one block south of the highway, has a PTT, banks, a customs house, assorted shipping offices and several restaurants. The beach is fronted by Sahil Yolu, which stretches out east of the docks and has several good pensions. There is an internet café in the plaza opposite the pier.
