Very nice landmark to see, and climb, but choose early mornings or evenings. Cooler temperatures, less people.

best place to be in Sicilly, this is a must see. Wonderful water, the beach is great, a place where you can relax and forget about everything.

The place is a must see but bear in mind that it might as well be very very windy. As a matter of fact it was too windy when we were there so we couldn't really enjoy the beach as much given that the sea was a bit rough, wavy and cold. However, the day after we went back to... More

Amazing, quite unique natural formation. The surface is not too hot or slippery, easy to walk and lay on. No shadows so be sure to bring enough water and sunscreen. There is a huge parking lot nearby, close to Lido “Scala die Turci” from where you take a stairway down. Can be crowded, but worth it.

When in the area make a trip to see this natural beauty. The day seemed overcast. After a misunderstanding with the owner of the beach lido who extorts money to use the toilet even though you spend money at the bar, it is a must see! Please see photos as it will speak for itself.

Totally worth a visit even if you do not come to sunbathe or swim. Admission is free. We saw cars parked alongside the road for free. There is also a parking lot, which costs 2 euros per hour (June 2014).

A terrific day at the beach and enjoying a unique natural formation. We spent the day with family. The water was clear (and cold) but well worth the trip.

Scala Dei Turchi is beautiful! You have the choice of sunbathing on the white rocks or the Sandy beaches surrounding the stairs. The locals enjoy the mud in the water and rub it on themselves... Interesting but I didn't partake. The water was warm but there is plant life you have to get over for clear blue waters or you... More

I'd read a lot about Scala dei turchi. Some might say it's breathtaking, and it is, BUT be prepared for a walk under Sicily's hot sun and bw sure you will not find it easy to take a bath nearby. The beach is not a good one, you will find yourself trying to enter the sea while walking over stones... More
