Punta Bianca: The Story Behind the Shot
Sicily is lined with beautiful beaches, but there is nothing quite like the secluded Punta Bianca on the west coast in Agrigento province. Not long after we first arrived in Sicily, some friends of ours brought us to Scali dei Turchi (The Turkish Steps). It’s a massive calcium formation on the beach resulting in chalky white step-like rock formations on the beach. It’s also crazy popular, and people visit from across Europe just about all year long.
Punta Bianca is about an hour to the south. It features the same calcium formations, but it’s not as large. It’s also a few kilometers off the beaten path along a rough road. Then you have to hike down a hill, and no footpath has been added. As a result, it’s not as popular. When we went in early June, we had the beach to ourselves for most of the morning.
As you can see in the photo, one of the highlights of this beach is an abandoned fishing cabin situated on one of the chalky white outcroppings. It is a truly unique beach, secluded, and unknown to most except the locals.
