Scala dei Turchi, Realmonte

4.2
#1 of 35 in Parks in Province of Agrigento
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.

  • From a scenic point of view, this stretch of coastline is beautiful. Unfortunately, much of what lies close to the shoreline in the narrow sense has to be abstracted. Near the Actual Turkish Staircase, some effort to eliminate the worst obrobribrihas has been made, but decades of abuse, building and otherwise cannot be erased, in the blink of an eyes...

  • Very beautiful beach with impressive clay rocks. Definitely worth a stop there. Parking is a problem if it's summer.
