Cape Tisan is a headland on the Mediterranean sea coast of Mersin Province, Turkey. The cape is near to Yeşilovacık town in Silifke district of Mersin. The distance to Silifke is 52 kilometres (32 mi) and to Mersin is 135 kilometres (84 mi).

The cape is actually the southernmost point of a circular spit of roughly 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) diameter connected to the mainland by an isthmus. The spit is famous for being home to Aphrodisias of Cilicia and the istmus has a pair of bays one in each side. In the Middle Ages the east bay was named Limni Aphrodisias and the west bay was named Limni Etheros .

Modern popular names are Cleopatra’s bay for the east bay and Pirates’ bay (Turkish: Korsan koyu) for the west bay. Both bays are popular beaches and in fact the cape is named after a site of marine resorts just north of the isthmus. However owing to dominant lodos winds of the Mediterranean coast, the Pirates’ bay is not as sheltered as the Cleoptra’s bay.

The Pirates’ bay is not as sheltered as the Cleoptra’s bay.
