A quick look at the many beaches and coves, in the wonderful sea of Sicily, amazing for the transparency and richness of the colors.
Wishing to show you just some of the highlights of this incredible island, we can start with the south coast from Capo Passero of Siracusa to Capo Granitola of Trapani which proudly displays its golden sand as exotic features.
Marina di Ragusa, Pozzallo, Punta Secca in the area of Ragusa, Natural Reserve of Torre Salsa nearby Sciacca, Lampedusa Island and Scala dei Turchi in Agrigento: the long, often very uncrowded beaches instil harmony and the “out of this world” relaxation we are all looking for.
This sandy shore extends to Mazara del Vallo and to Marsala and continues through the Via del Sale (Salt Trail), the Natural Reserve of Stagnone and Mozia in Trapani. It is extremely interesting to discover how the salt is produced and to visit its dedicated museums. The Zingaro Natural Reserve and the fine white beach of San Vito lo Capo do not need any introduction and open up to the Tyrrhenian coast, characterised by a succession of beaches and rocks.
Ustica Island, Cefalù and Mondello in Palermo, the Aeolian Islands, Capo d’Orlando and Tindari in Messina and the Egadi Islands in Trapani, all overlook the Tyrrhenian Sea where the blue of the water is intense and the snorkeling is very enjoyable.
From Messina the east coast starts with lava rocks and pebble beaches, Taormina and Giardini Naxos; the Timpa Nature Reserve of Acireale and the rocks of Aci Trezza. Then the sand resumes in the Gulf of Catania, Siracusa, the Vendicari Nature Reserve, up to Marzamemi and the Island of Correnti where you can swim in the exact spot where the Ionian and Mediterranean sea join up.
