Scala dei Turchi

Sicily, Italy

The white cliffs of Scala dei Turchi, or “Stairs of the Turks,” have been attracting beachgoers in the know for centuries. Located on the southern coast of Sicily, the cliffs are made of eroded clay and marl, giving them the most wondrous natural steps, which make them easy to pillage. Join the locals by covering yourself in wet marl for its supposed skin benefits, or go cliff diving into the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean.
