Sicily’s beaches

Sicily is the island with the most beaches in the Mediterranean Sea. They are spread over more than 1,000 kilometres of coastline. Sicily does have a lot of beaches!

There are beaches with white sand, such as Ognina, Fontane Bianche, San Vito Lo Capo, Mondello, and others with golden sand, such as Marina di Ragusa, Donnalucata, Marzamemi and La Scala dei Turchi.

Sandy beaches are best for sunbathing and for families, especially if you have children. However, they are often crowded, especially at weekends and in the main tourist areas of Sicily.

Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro

The coast of this wonderful protected area, located near Trapani, is full of white pebble coves and is bathed by a very clear sea. Immersed in wild nature, the bays can be reached along paths through the protected area, with an entrance charge. The parking area offers a rest area with bar. We recommend using trekking shoes, comfortable clothing and, above all, taking bottles of water and a packed lunch. In summer it can get really hot and the coves will be more crowded, so it is better to go in June or September.
