Scala dei Turchi, Realmonte

4.3
#1 of 12 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.

  • The setting is beautiful, the view of scala dei turchi is wonderful the white rocks that stands out among all the blue of the sea is lovely. AIME though there are a lot of negatives, you can only Park in private car parks, to access the beach c is to do a long staircase, then go with kids too small becomes an adventure, to arrive at the Turkish steps I paced a stretch of beach, full of rubbish, cans, cups, aluminum ... And I noticed that there wasn't even a dumpster in sight the city. Surely at other times of the year will be more pleasant and less chaotic, but rejected in August. And especially don't scratch written different on scale!

  • Lovely place to visit! Water is clean,shallow and there is sand. Would recommend going early morning in peak season or afternoon around 2pm to avoid crowds. Also bring a beach umbrella and food if pos...  more »
  • Today I had lunch with family in tow at "LOUNGE BEACH" by the sea and at first I denied lunch then a waitress invites me to sit down only to be fast! Unfortunately, given the time (13.00) and having no alternatives because the children were hungry I agree and we settle! We order a caponata (1) two spaghetti with clams (2) and a plate of simple dumplings with gravy (1) all washed down with water (1) and birrino (1) at which we begin to eat (I note that half the tables were empty) and after a short time we meet eyes that seem to say "fast" ... 10 minute counted and we finished and we start at the checkout to pay the Bill that to my amazement I have a €74.00 account even you had eaten an appetizer first second and side dish! I pay without making any objection but it certainly will be the last time we will see! I noticed that the restaurant half empty (at 13.00???) has little smiling staff (waiter) and the two bartenders for a total dislike because they brag that it's a pleasure! But what do they think just because they are the only ones on the beach to make the peasants who did not comfortable? I have an environment for over thirty years I understand for these things and not the future certainly will follow! People are not as stupid as they believe and remember these things, we will think a thousand times before coming back
