La Scala dei Turchi, near Agrigento, Sicily


At La Scala dei Turchi, the limestone coastline appears to have been whipped into soft meringue peaks that take the form of a natural staircase, leading down to the green-blue sea. Getting to the beach can be a little on the perilous side as the pathways along the coast are narrow, carved naturally into the stone by the wear of the sea. The beach is one of nature’s great architectural masterpieces and well worth the visit, but it’s advisable to go prepared: take plenty of water, and a sun hat or some form of shade is essential.
