Very cool to see and to climb on for a great view.

Definitely worth your time to stop there and dip your toes in the water and to explore the Turkish steps. Don't get too close to the edge. The rock seems weaker than normal.

One of the things you must see if you are in the neighbourhood. In summer better to avoid Sundays as the place gets very crowd.

Another natural spot that is worth to check. No picture would make justice the beauty of the place. The walk along the sea line progressively takes you to real magnificent dimensions of the 'steps'. Don't miss this place.

Breathtaking view, both, from the top and from the beach level. It is a long way down but totally worth the effort. We climbed up and got down on the other side of Scala dei Turchi where a small beach is. We visited several beaches in Agrigento/Sciacca region and were coming back three times to this place as it was... More

Scala dei Turchi (Turkish Steps), a rocky cliff on the coast near Porto Empedocle (Agrigento area), south Sicily. White color rock and turquoise-blue sea. Really impressive and worth seeing - nice beaches on both sides of the Scala dei Turchi. It is easier to walk along the coast (30 min from big parking near Villa Romana hotel) to the rock... More

I wonder how everything nice ended up being here in Sicily. Scala dei Turchi is one of the miriad wonders you will see here.

Drove from Agrigento, about 20 minutes, to Scala dei turchi, park on the road, no need to pay for the car park unless its really busy. Needs a level of fitness to scale the steps down to the beach but worth it when you get there. It was quite busy when we were there, just after lunch, but I imagine... More

Worth a visit if you are in the vicinity (it is about an hour's dive from Enna and about 1/2 hour from Agrigento) to see the gleaming white staircase rock formation. The beach is also nice. , with many sunbathers and people going into the water

This is a very nice place, maybe a little too crowded, but it's worth a visit for half a day. The sea is amazing and the white rock creates a very nice contrast.

Basically it is just a white cliff. Not man made and similar cliffs can be found in other spots around the world. But the combination of the blue sea on a sunny day makes it quite special. Must be overcrowded in summer,
