We stopped by the Scale dei Turchi with little expectations. It wasn't originally on our top must-sees, but we added it on when another site wasn't open. It was a little out of our way to drive there, but when we arrived, we realized it was worth it. Amazingly beautiful views with such a large natural formation right on the... More

Amazing beach where white rocks made of "marna" meet blue sea.It's not so easy to find it But is one of the best beaches in Sicily.

We arrived in the last part of the day and the view was the most breathtaking scene I have ever seen in my life. I wish we could have just laid on the beach and on the steps all day long. This is definitely a spot to spend a whole day relaxing. There is a little restaurant and vendors on... More

If you came here expecting to cool down on a beautiful beach, you will definitely be disappointed. The sea here is very shallow, full of big stones and grass, which makes it impossible to swim and cool down. The white rocks are great for taking pictures, but since you practically cannot swim in the sea and the coastline is not... More

Fortunately for us, this was in easy walking distance of where we stayed (villa del saraceno - which was great) and was quite stunning. I would certainly recommend seeing it and if you spend a bit of time there and walk a bit further round you will probably have the place to yourselves at some point. Stunning views.

When we asked the hotel staff on how to go to Scala dei Turchi from Realmonte, everybody told us that it was impossible to go there without a car but we really wanted to try. When we reached Realmonte, there was an elderly gentleman who offered to drive us to Scala dei Turchi for 6 Euro, but we preferred to... More

Getting there can be rather complicated if you're not traveling with someone who knows the area or has a GPS unit. We drove down the hillside and parked in a lot near the beach. We parked about 10 or so minutes down the beach from the Scala dei Turchi and walked over. Walking that distance allows you to enjoy the... More

One of the many great sights of Sicily, and well worth visiting. Well signposted, and for those with their own transport, a limited amount of on-road parking. Fairly easy walk down, past the entrance to a café/pizzeria, along the beach (where in season there is a kiosk), and onto 'the steps'. The walk around to the far side is fairly... More
