This beach really is a hidden gem. Crystal clear water and beautiful sand surrounded by a treeline and rocky outpost. The trees offer some well needed shade if required, whilst still within a hairs breath of the water. A car is required to reach the...More

This beach is beautiful. The white sandy beach and clear blue waters make it feel like something from the Caribbean. We actually walked to this beach along a very busy road - not recommended, so can't comment on parking but noticed it cost 20 Euros....More

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...More

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....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)...More

Hi! I don't think so, but it also could be possible! :) I know that from 6 o'clock there are no cashier at the entrance. So all people got off from the beach until it's dark. I don't know about campers. Sorry
