Punta Bianca is a very particular and little known stretch of coast compared to the more famous Scala dei Turchi. It is not very easy to get there, so you have to proceed slowly by car along a dirt road and then continue on foot.
The beauty of this place is given by the white color of the rock (marl) and its wavy shape, which looks like soft snow lying on the beach . Here you are totally immersed in nature , between cliffs and clear sea. The landscape is made even more particular and original, by an ancient barracks of the Guardia di Finanza built in stone and now abandoned. The advice is to wait for the sunset and admire the white marl tinged with pink.
Tip from Topsecretsicily: You can also book a boat tour near the White Point Reserve or an ‘ excursion among organic olive groves in the area in the company of an agronomist, including a visit to an olive oil mill, oil tasting and tasting of typical local products, such as arancini, sfincione and crocche’.
There are no refreshment points here, so take everything you need with you and go early in the morning, thus avoiding having to walk in the scorching sun. Since arriving is not very comfortable, the area is not crowded, so it is ideal for those looking for a bit of relaxation.
