Beaches in Sicily

Sicily , like the rest of Italy, offers a relaxing atmosphere and sunny weather and summer temperatures most of the time. This is why it's essential to select the most beautiful Sicilian beaches! It's hard to imagine anyone being able to resist the turquoise crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean and Ionian Seas. From May to November, the water temperature does not drop below 68°F. What better reason to dive into the waters for a refreshing dip? In summer, for a peaceful swim, opt for areas away from the tourist crowds (many coves can be reached by boat) and avoid the major ports of Palermo, Milazzo and Messina. Sicilian beaches all have their own special charm. From the blue lagoon waters of San Vito lo Capo (favoured by tourists in the summer) to Scala dei Turchi (Agrigento) beach with its clear and less crowded waters, it would be hard to resist some time on the beach. You can also count visit the piscina di Venere (Venus Pool) which has several natural pools created by the rocks rising from the water. You'll be amazed by the tranquility and beauty of the place. Curious souls, take a look at our beach map to find the one of your dreams.
