THE DIVERSE BEACHES OF SICILY
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and offers more than 1,000 coastal kilometres with wonderful beaches! The paradisiac islands offshore, like the Aeolian and Egadi islands or Lampedusa dazzle with a variety of unique and fantastic beaches.
The beaches of the Aeolian islands and the Zingaro nature reserve
The volcanic beaches on the Aeolian islands with its pitch-black sand, like on the island Volcano, are an excellent experience. You can also find black sandy beaches on the volcanic island Stromboli, like the Forgia Vecchie near the harbour of Porto Scari. Lipari is the largest and most vibrant island of this island group and dazzles with unique beaches as well. The most spectacular beach is the Capobianco, which can only be visited by boat. There, you can slide from large pumice stone slides into the turquoise blue ocean. They are relicts from a former quarry.
At the northern coast of Sicily, around Palermo, you should visit the beautiful beaches of Mondello and San Vito Lo Capo, which lie west from the capital. They are also popular with the locals from the cities Palermo and Trapani. The nearby nature reserve Lo Zingaro dazzles with remote and untouched bays to relax far away from the mass tourism.
Relax at the Scala dei Turchi and further dream beaches
Near Agrigent at the western coast lies one of the fascinating beaches of Italy, the Scala dei Turchi. It is characterized by a 50m high white limestone with a natural echelon form, where you can perfectly relax and enjoy the sun. Formerly, it was called the “Stairway of the Turks”, as it was the gateway of the Turks during the period of the Italian-Ottoman war.
The beach of Ereclea Minoa at the southern coast of Sicily is lined by eucalyptus trees. On the wide and golden sandy beach, you can relax and maybe enjoy a mud bath of the mud rock. The beaches of the nature reserve of Vendicari at the southern end of the island are an important migration route for migratory birds, especially flamingos.
The offshore island Lampedusa dazzles with wonderful beaches along the 11km coastline. The Spiaggia dei Conigli is protected, and you can observe turtles laying their eggs between July and August.
Near the fashionable bathing resort, Taormina at the eastern coast of Sicily lies the headland of the Isola Bella, which is protected. The beaches dazzle with crystal clear water, perfect for diving and snorkeling.
The picturesque fishing village Giardini-Naxos invites you for a stroll along the beautiful sickle-shaped promenade with lots of restaurants and bars. The beach is also worth a visit!
