If you are in Catania best to avoid seaside. It is so sad what we people made to it. It could be so breathtaking, lava rock, water but unfortunately there are so many papers, plastic bottles, cigarette butts, broken glass.
It’s better if you check fishmarket, old town, Park Villa Bellini, and restaurants on Via Santa Filomena, and don’t except to have a nice walk along Lungomare, and swim by Via S. Giovanni Li Cuti, because rubbish will kill the idill.

Rocky beach asserted via a single set of steel steps, ok for sunbathing, there are plenty of rock in the water if you want to swim

Ognina seafront is one of my favorite places of Catania, one of the beaches of the historical city, the lava rock that accompanies entirely along this part of the city. Many times I have been here, it's always a pleasure to stroll the waterfront or sometimes even a simple run up and down this boardwalk. For bathing I prefer the area beaches where there is sand, but the sea is much more beautiful and clear here. There is the possibility of free swimming and in some places there are structures to allow the placement of towels or whatever.
Also nice in the evening, there are many banquets and vendors selling stuffs, or a drink at one of the bars along the way.

It's a relaxing drive along the sea with lovely spots for a quick snap with your phone or cam. There are some quiet beaches along the way as well.

Very busy on a Sunday morning with large amounts of traffic and cars. Had excellent typical sicilian sweets from Quaranta. Excellent!
