Bathed in sunlight and lapped by crystalline waters, Scala dei Turchi is a white-stone coastal cliff between two sandy beaches. You can access this popular tourist attraction by climbing a limestone rock formation in the shape of a staircase. This area was once the site of frequent Turkish raids. Near the cliff is a small bar, offering cold drinks, a deep shade, and sweeping views of the sea. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring lots of water for your walk up the steep staircase.

Πολύ όμορφη παραλία με εντυπωσιακά πετρώματα αργίλου. Αξίζει σίγουρα μια στάση εκεί. Το πάρκινγκ είναι πρόβλημα αν είναι καλοκαίρι. more »Very beautiful beach with impressive clay rocks. Definitely worth a stop there. Parking is a problem if it's summer.
