+ Agrigento Beaches

Agrigento beaches differ from other Italian seaside resorts.

The region’s geographical position and hot African breath make this part of Sicily a place of fantastic landscape, hot sea, and an ideal place for those who seek privacy.

The territory between Punta Bianca and Porto Empedocle is full of sand beaches.

Even though Agrigento city – the capital of the province – has no access to the sea, one can easily get to any beach of the region within 15-30 minutes by public bus. You can choose between golden sandy beaches, ‘wild’ ones or with white cliffs.

The water is pretty warm here: 21,3º – 22,4º in June – October, and up to 25,8º in August – the hottest month.

You will definatly be impressed and fall in love with Scala dei Turchi, San Leone (Spiaggia San Leone) and Punta Bianca (Spiaggia Punta Bianca) beaches.

Scala dei Turchi beach

The beach is famous not only in Agrigento province but also across Sicily. Natural fifty-meters hight white lofty cliffs, laying for 2 km along the seashore, make this place really unique. Scala dei Turchi, which means ‘Turkish stairs,’ was formed in ancient times, when Turkish and Arab ships harbored here.

The beach looks fantastic! You will be amazed by ‘snowy’, marble coastline. Do not forget to take water and snacks with you as the beach is a secluded place and there are no restaurants or bars. С собой стоит прихватить лёгкий обед и воду, так как место очень уединённое и не располагает привычными пляжными удобствами.
