La Scala dei Turchi in Realmonte on the southern coast of Sicily are white cliffs that pour into the sea. The cliffs are made of a type of marl or marlstone, a hard-mud material that is a combination of calcium carbonate and lime mixed with other types of clay and silt. Like the Cliffs of Dover in England, La Scala dei Turchi possess a white, chalky color.
It’s a sight to see, and one we’ll be taking in on Day 3 of our Enchanting Sicily tour this September. Let’s experience this wonder of Mother Earth together! Contact me, Allison Scola, at Experience Sicily for more details.

This picture made me hungry for Beach! And with the cliffs it reminded me of beaches on the windward side of islands in Hawaii (more mountains up against the ocean). 🙂 <3
Oh… Hawaii… yes, Hawaii too has some breathtaking scenery. Now you’ve got me picturing fantasy travel! 🙂
It is much like Sicily because everywhere you turn, there’s another natural beauty to take in. <3
