“Clear and cristalin water, within an amazing surrounding!”

Spiaggia Pineta del Gelsomineto
Reviewed 22 July 2016

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) depending on wether its a weekend or weekday. But 400m away you also have a dirt road where you can park your car for free.

The parking also has 1 Bar which provides support to the beach, as well an area with fresh water for showers.

Coming from Siracusa on the highway heading to Noto,leave on the Cassibile exit and follow the road heading to the sea - you will pass a bridge where you will be able to see the sea on your left and the river just on your right side. After passing the bridge, it's the first dirt road 200m on your right (it's a bit hidden).

We had a very enjoyable afternoon even though it was unseasonably cold.
We would definitely recommend a visit to this beach which was withing easy driving distance from the lovely Agriturismo we stayed at.

It was a bit difficult to find but turned out to be a hidden little gem.
To help find it I added a google maps screenshot with location/ coordinates as it is not the address added on TripAdvisor. Take the Avola exit on a18 and then turn left towards the sea. The sign of the park can actually only be seen if you head from sea towards the a18 but hopefully with the screenshot you'll be able to find it too..

It's officially 10 euro to get onto the terrain for 1 car. (We didn't have to pay though as in the morning there was no sign and no one to collect the fee by the entrance; maybe because of the end of the season. When we left, there wás a sign indicating the fee).

We only went to the beach part of the park. It was beautiful and clean. The water was clear the beach has fine sand with a few pebbles in the water. No watershoes needed.
If you snorkle around the rocks you can spot some fishes and crabs :)

It was a beatiful spot and not to busy on a september day.

Best beach I ever been in Sicily! 10 euro per car per day (in June), get your snacks with ya. There are no any shops at the beach. Don't forget the umbrellas. It's a little bit hard to find the way to the beach from the main road - the entrance is from opposite from Avola side of the road. It's tiny way under the main road.

I'm sicilian and I put this place in my top 5! You must have a car to arrive, pay twenty euro for parking and just enjoy a natural paradise, the beach is full of trees that arrives very close to sea and you can use it to repair from sun! The water is hot and clean, if you prefer to get more adventure just move across the rocks on the east side of the beach and you will arrive in another little beach. More wild! A must if you love nature
