Out of all the beaches I went to in Sicily, I liked this one the most - mainly because of the "Turkish Stairs". Boyfriend and I climbed up to grab some sick views - and the obvious photo ops. The beach itself wasn't that stunning but go up the white cliffs and you'll understand the hype. The view up there... More

Beautiful place to walk and swim. There were waves in the sea, so it was funny. The restaurant nearby is very disappointed.

Stunning place made by nature! Me and my boyfriend stayed there 2 days with a van, near the way down was small free parking place and we put our tiny camper there. During daytime it's quite hard to find any place but at the evening easier. Down at the shore are some showers, restaurants and bars but not too many.

Scala dei Turchi is an amazing formed group of scales to walk there. It doesn't really require climbing, you can just have a walk there, around the sea side. Rocks are wave shaped and smooth to walk on. You can have a relaxing sit in the sun on quite spacious area, but I won't recommend coming to close to the... More

Definitely worth your time to stop there and dip your toes in the water and to explore the Turkish steps. Don't get too close to the edge. The rock seems weaker than normal.

One of the things you must see if you are in the neighbourhood. In summer better to avoid Sundays as the place gets very crowd.

Another natural spot that is worth to check. No picture would make justice the beauty of the place. The walk along the sea line progressively takes you to real magnificent dimensions of the 'steps'. Don't miss this place.

Breathtaking view, both, from the top and from the beach level. It is a long way down but totally worth the effort. We climbed up and got down on the other side of Scala dei Turchi where a small beach is. We visited several beaches in Agrigento/Sciacca region and were coming back three times to this place as it was... More

Scala dei Turchi (Turkish Steps), a rocky cliff on the coast near Porto Empedocle (Agrigento area), south Sicily. White color rock and turquoise-blue sea. Really impressive and worth seeing - nice beaches on both sides of the Scala dei Turchi. It is easier to walk along the coast (30 min from big parking near Villa Romana hotel) to the rock... More

I wonder how everything nice ended up being here in Sicily. Scala dei Turchi is one of the miriad wonders you will see here.
