“Natural beauty”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

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.

“A must see”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

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.

“Very impressive white cliff”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

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).

“Unique natural formation”
Reviewed July 7, 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.

“Beautiful Coast”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

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 can jump of the rocks. The walk down/up is a bit of a hike but worth it. Fun times in Sicily!!
