15 of the World's Most Unique & Awesome Beaches
The Scala dei Turchi is a beach in southern Sicily that translates to the Stair of the Turks. The name makes sense as the cliffs are naturally formed into brilliant white stairs, though I am not entirely sure why the Turks get ownership credit (supposedly because the Turks crawled up these steps during an invasion). This unique beach is a can’t miss. Click through to see 15 more of the world's most unique & awesome beaches!

Scala dei Turchi (Turkish Steps), Sicily. If you find yourself at the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, Sicily, be sure to travel just 15 minutes to this spectacular Southern coastal sea line at Realmonte. A haven for private, but public, beach-goers and irresistible for photographers, Scala dei Turchi is another prized jewel of this dynamic and unique island.

"Scala dei Turchi" (The Turkish Steps) is a white cliff in Realmonte (Sicily) made of a soft limestone and a blinding white marl. Natural erosion has created steps on the cliff face, making it look soft and sinuous, like a Big Meringue covered with sprinkles (the people sitting and walking on it). Only after shooting this image, while watching it on a bigger screen, I noticed a newlywed couple in the frame kissing for their wedding photoshoot. Exactly at the edge of the cliff. Copyright: © Plac
