Sold as a must seen, this beach is pretty common. Note that there is no obvious way to get there. Local car park is nicely overpriced so you'll park local way in a remote back road and walk you way there. There are nocer beaches around

We went to this beach twice during our stay in Cassibile-Siracusa area. The water is clear and clean. You can hike up the cliff and take amazing pictures. Pack umbrella, towels, food, and drink. There is a small bar, but I'm not sure if it has many options. Go prepared.

Sicily isn't a destination where I'd rank the beaches as best in the world (and we haven't visited all of them so maybe that's unfair) but so far we haven't been that impressed. In saying that, this one is pretty good and worth a mention. It's a smallish, pretty inlet, backed with pine-trees for some well-needed shade. Bump your car... More

Paradisiac beach, just at the end of the Cavagrand river, surrounded by trees which makes the setting even better! The access to the beach is free but to park directly at the beach, be prepared to pay 12 or 15 EUR (a very wiiide park) depending on wether its a weekend or weekday. But 400m away you also have a...

We had a very enjoyable afternoon even though it was unseasonably cold. We would definitely recommend a visit to this beach which was withing easy driving distance from the lovely Agriturismo we stayed at.

It was a bit difficult to find but turned out to be a hidden little gem. To help find it I added a google maps screenshot with location/ coordinates as it is not the address added on TripAdvisor. Take the Avola exit on a18 and then turn left towards the sea. The sign of the park can actually only be... More

Best beach I ever been in Sicily! 10 euro per car per day (in June), get your snacks with ya. There are no any shops at the beach. Don't forget the umbrellas. It's a little bit hard to find the way to the beach from the main road - the entrance is from opposite from Avola side of the road.... More

I'm sicilian and I put this place in my top 5! You must have a car to arrive, pay twenty euro for parking and just enjoy a natural paradise, the beach is full of trees that arrives very close to sea and you can use it to repair from sun! The water is hot and clean, if you prefer to... More

Lovely beach with picture perfect cliffs and clear water! There is parking available for 10euros in a nice shady location just steps away from the beach however many locals opt for parking on the road near by (it's free however a short walk away) The beach was moderately busy when we went, though not packed. I suggest bringing a beach... More
