Definitely a must see / must experience if you are able. Yes 20-30 minutes from Agrigento. We parked above Majata Beach at a public parking lot only to find another further down just above the beach, no problem. This was May 2016 and a small number of other beach fans. It is a pretty easy beach walk to the right... More

Blue water, very white cliffs, worm wind..It's a must see if you intend to visit Sicily. Good also for sun bath. Usually full of tourists but if you choose to come on autumn is better to see it.

IMPRESSIONS: The 3pm sun's glint off the ultra white steps and fresh sea breezes are invigorating. I could not believe that these steps were made by wind and rain versus a machine. The organic nature and smoothness of the Step's curves is like a natural Gaudi architectural work you can touch and play on. HOW TO GET THERE & HINTS:... More

I went to Scala dei turchi during the busiest month August. There were a lot of tourists so the atmosphere wasn't calm or relaxing, but the view are unparalleled, especially at sunset. I recommend a visit in the off season to better appreciate the landscapes

Out of all the beaches I went to in Sicily, I liked this one the most - mainly because of the "Turkish Stairs". Boyfriend and I climbed up to grab some sick views - and the obvious photo ops. The beach itself wasn't that stunning but go up the white cliffs and you'll understand the hype. The view up there... More

Beautiful place to walk and swim. There were waves in the sea, so it was funny. The restaurant nearby is very disappointed.

Stunning place made by nature! Me and my boyfriend stayed there 2 days with a van, near the way down was small free parking place and we put our tiny camper there. During daytime it's quite hard to find any place but at the evening easier. Down at the shore are some showers, restaurants and bars but not too many.

Scala dei Turchi is an amazing formed group of scales to walk there. It doesn't really require climbing, you can just have a walk there, around the sea side. Rocks are wave shaped and smooth to walk on. You can have a relaxing sit in the sun on quite spacious area, but I won't recommend coming to close to the... More

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.
