Turk Landing is so named because once in this area, Saracen pirates used to make their raids. The Saracens were more commonly known as “Turks.”

The Saracens had always wanted to invade Augusta, and among their many attempts, two in particular stand out.

The first of the two refers to July 1551, when the hermit friar Paolo Serra, who lived near what is now known as Punta Serpaolo, saw a Saracen ship land with a hundred pirates on board.

He rang a bell to warn the local population, but was still killed by the pirates.

The second is about May 1594, when it is reported that the Saracens landed in Augsburg and St. Dominic appeared from the sky on a horse, who with a sword, rode menacingly toward the Saracens.

They were so terrified that they ran away.

What remains today is a beautiful, “secret” beach, made up of crystal-clear waters, rocks and a quiet area to explore by land and sea.
