Must see · Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
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.
