Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web
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 whatever angle you look at the scale of the Turks leave open-mouthed, a natural wonder, and swim under the staircase in the early morning (though out of season) in absolute alone is an experience that remains in memory, a pleasure for the body and the spirit.

  • Sicily was most shocking views. You can see the views get the White Rock Beach white, like a Marshmallow. Sea is very beautiful, the weather is good you can sunbathe or time. Like a lime with a clothes bag is good to go in the bag because it had turned white in bathing suits, water washable. Is a means of transportation, but can be reached by city bus from Agrigento. Also on the HOP ON HOP OFF bus to go from Agrigento very straightforward and useful. Guide to Japan to no access is bad is one of the Sicily's famous tourist destinations.

  • Unique and beautiful, but heavy wind blowing. The view is absolutely worth the effort to visit.
  • A beautiful and unique place to visit. One of the amazing natural occurances. It is very similar to Pamukkale in Turkey which may be why it is called the Stairs of the Turks.
  • A unique natural venue that is worth a visit. Parking can be a bit tricky but we'll worth the effort. Beautiful setting.
  • Amazing view! But perhaps come here under a good weather. Also the transport can be an issue for backpackers
  • Beautiful and interesting but probably not worth the hassle of parking during high season.
