Sandy beach - Scala dei Turchi - Sicily

© All rights reserved, don't use without permission

 

The Scala dei Turchi is a rocky cliff with an unusual white colour formed by marl (clay and limestone). This is a unique place for lounging on the smooth rock. There’re two sandy beaches around this curiosity. Its name comes from a legend that the Scala was used as a hiding place for Turkish pirates.
