Beaches of sicily

Sicily is washed by 3 seas: the Ionian, Tyrrhenian and Mediterranean. If you wish, you can swim in each of them, since the coastline with a length of about 1000 km allows you to find the perfect beach. For several years in a row, Marina di Ragusa, Santa Maria del Focallo and Pozzallo have been Beaches of sicilyof the Blue Flag. These beaches are recognized as the cleanest in Europe.

The peak season is in July and August. The resorts are crowded, restaurants are packed with tourists, and hotels are overpriced. Therefore, if you want to relax in complete silence, enjoy the splash of waves and nature, it is better to come to Sicily from early May to June or September until the last days of November.

Mondello beach

The water temperature is determined by the coast. Sandy beaches have a smooth descent into the sea and a shallow bottom, the water warms up to comfortable temperatures already in mid-May, so they always have a lot of families with small children.

Pebble beaches have a sharp descent. The thickness of the water does not warm up so quickly, but the stone retains heat longer than sand, so the swimming season on rocky beaches lasts a little longer.

It is also necessary to consider geography – the closer the resort is to the African continent, the hotter the water and air.

Most of the sandy beaches lie on the southern and southeastern parts of the island. Almost all of them are free, only some charge an entrance fee (from 5 to 15 €), offering in return an umbrella, 2 sun loungers and the ability to use a changing booth.

The best beaches for family and romantic holidays stretch from Fontana Bianca to Marinello di Selinunte.
