Pack your bathers and bottled water. There is a carpark at the top of the path and it also provides showers for after your bath. You walk down a path/staircase that takes you past a restaurant and down to the beach. Turn right and you will see the start of the white cliffs of the Turkish Steps. When you get... More

It's quite a hike down and up (especially in the hot summer sun) but so worth it. A short walk from the stairs and you'll see the lovely white "staircase". We went on a weekday afternoon and there were quite a lot of people there already. Bring something to sit on otherwise you'll get white dust on everything that touches... More

Beautiful and amazing. The contrast of colors and rock formations is spectacular. Not the best place for swimming but worth spending time walking the beach and getting a bit to eat in the various restaurants close by.. The wind kept us from getting to warm but it deceives you as the the amount of sun one is getting. Take water... More

It has really interesting history - all the shore was used by intruders to access the island and robber and kill locals. Currently peacefull area ever

One of the less known postcards of sicily . Beautiful views from the road near the Madison restaurant . Look for a place with signs of "access forbiden - vietato l'accesso" , with a wooden barrier - balcony , just aside the road .

Great view and not too crowded. Plenty of sun so be sure to bring sun screen. If you have a beach umbrella bring it. Parking is difficult. 3:00 pm was best due to lower tide. A great place to spend the day.

This incredible place is about 10 km passing Agrigento. You will park the car and do all the way on foot to discover the white cliff on the sea. Not for persons with difficulty to walk.

When you walk up to it from the main beach, it feels a bit over rated- then once we walked to the other side and saw the hidden beach behind, we understood what the fuss was about. Absolutely stunning, crystal clear waters, mustn't be missed! Loved every minute and shame to leave. The taverna on the main beach corner (beside... More

This is worth the hike and interesting to see. Read the history, as that makes it more interesting. We hiked down the cliff stairs to get there, but if you drive past where everyone parks, there is another parking area where you don't have to climb down many many many stairs, which you then have to climb back up. Instead,... More
