We were spending the day at near by Majata Beach Club and took the walk over (about 10 minutes). Great photo opportunities with the white cliffs contrasting with the blue sea. Glad we checked it out. The place was absolutely packed in the afternoon which was a bummer. If you visit in Summer suggest going early before 10AM. Maybe we... More

We went there to admire the scenery and spend the day at the beach. The scenery is beautiful.The view from the top of the stairs is breathtaking, however the beach was not what we expected. I recommend this place for the scenery not for the beach.

Scala dei Turchi is a beautiful and unique area. I have been to Pammukale in Turkey and this is reminiscent of that beautiful site. The stone is blinding white and contrasts beautifully with the blue sea. Definitely worth climbing (not very strenuous). The beach nearby is not very appealing so I recommend going to nearby Majata Beach and then walking... More

One of my favourite places in Sicily. Gets crazily busy during the day but if you can make the time to visit at sunset or just after sunrise you will have the place almost to yourself. Definitely worth the extra effort.

Fantastic beach with a great view. Unique! One of the place to go before you die... When you arrive there, don't stop and keep walking up to the other side of the white cliff...that's the right place!

Beautiful natural beauty. Small beach but it is free and the water is beautiful. The white cliffs are spectacular. A must visit if you are in the area.

It is a bit complex to find parking here but once you do, the walk across the beach to the Turkish steps is nice and the steps themselves are awesome. You only need about 90 minutes to walk around the site but it is all incredibly beautiful

This natural wonder exceeded our expectations. The beauty of the sun kissed white terraced cliffs and the blue colors of the sea before sunset was spectacular! The view from the road above was amazing but the view from the beach below was even better and worth the steep walk down and up. There is a part of a cliff that... More

magnificent piece of nature's art. It takes some stairs down to visit, but certainly worth it. Enjoy the view!
