More about Arenella Resort

Try out the local beaches

by MikeBird

Siracusa has apparently got some small beaches of its own. We found one near the 'piccolo port' but it looked as though it was privately owned and certainly in mid winter it was all very closed up.

Instead we took the road out south to Arenella which has a very nice sweeping beach with a small car park just behind. There were no facilities but then it was the end of December. We'd been lucky with the weather as we had bright sunshine and temperatures into the 20's Celcius. As a consequence there were quite a few people out enjoying the winter sun. In fact some people were swimming without wetsuits though I don't know if they were Italian. At the southern end of the beach it's possible to go for a walk through the coastal meadow; it's rocky foreshore gave the area a slightly more rugged feel, better than areas where the coastline is backed up by housing development which is the case at the other end of the beach.

Further south is the resort of Fontaine Bianchi. This beach was totally deserted but clearly in the summer it will be very popular judging by the number of hotels that back onto it.

Children on holiday in Sicilia - which part is best?

by ja-b69

We are bringing our children (ages 6 - 14) to Sicilia this summer. Haven't decided which part of Sicilia to stay yet. Any place to recommend?

Re: Children on holiday in Sicilia - which part is best?

I think any place with a beach will do for the children. And there are plenty of them. Cefalu, San Vito lo capo, south of Trapani, Siculiana, Pozzallo, Sampieri, Porto Palo di Capopassero, Fontane Bianche (south of Siracusa)... and many more. Just take a look at google earth, and choose one that could fit your cultural needs too.

Im partial but south and south east is best! it depends a bit on how old your kids are. There are lots of beaches which are oriented towards the family - shallow water and services, and then 100's of kms of just beach so you can go where you like. If you want the full on lido thing - sunbeds and parasols for hire - they are few and far between - Marina di Ragusa, Pozzallo and Fontane Bianche and Arenella are the options. Marina di Modica is great for kids as is Sampieri and Cava d'Aliga. Older children would prefer Pozzallo, Fontante BIanche, and Sampieri as there are beach activities and more social life.

If you want to get away from it all Id say stay near Noto and go to the Vendicari reserve, uncontaminated beaches, no ice creams, no sunbeds - just beaches and sea.....
