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.

This place is a must have. We got here in the evening and it was pretty crowded, but the place is simply breathtaking. Mind the stairs, you have a lot to climb. I would also recommend to drive uphill.... more »

Loved but not respected. Please clean it up.
Beautiful white marl rock formation forming a layered headland amid shallow waters.
