Lounge, take photographs and jump into the sea at Scala dei Turchi
The Scala dei Turchi, or Turkish Staircase, in Realmonte on the island of Sicily is a naturally occuring phenomenon. It is a rocky cliff, an unusual white in colour, which has been eroded by the sea over the centuries. Due to this extraordinary appearance and its mention in Andrea Camilleri’s series of detective stories about Commissario Montalbano, it has become a popular tourist attraction in the area.
The white, starkly beautiful crags and hollows of the cliff-face, paired with the rich blue of the ocean and the stunning sunsets in the area make it an astounding sight.
The colours seem unreal, hard to believe – which is why you must try and see it for yourself! Learn more: http://www.italy-villas.com/to-italy/2015/tourist-attractions/beaches/scala-dei-turchi-realmonte
