Scala dei Turchi

The natural elements miraculously sculpted this white cliff into a series of steps and terraces.

Scala dei TurchiA Stairway to Heaven

Scala dei Turchi literally means ‘Scale of the Turks’ as marauding Arabs and Turks found shelter in this bay during the Middle Ages. However, these days of terror are long past, and now this striking white cliff and the boundless blue sea around it are a popular bathing spot for locals. Visitors can stick to the beach to admire the cliff’s smooth white steps from afar or climb the limestone staircase to relax on this wonderful work of nature.
