The best beaches in Sicily

You need to ask Sicilians which are the best beaches in Sicily. They change every year, not only because of who goes to them and how clean they are, but because nature works fast on this triangular island. There’s a beach near me that was twenty yards of soft sand last summer: this year its ten feet of pebbles.

Unlike your guide book, this website called “The most beautiful beaches in Sicily” is always up to date. Just follow the link below. Every beach on it is gorgeous, but Sicilians can constantly vote beaches up or down.

  1. Hi, I’m really enjoying your page while planning my family holiday. Do you have any experience with jellyfish át beaches? Are they a real threat in Sicily? I do not find reliable info sources but do remember how our Corsica holiday was ruined by jellyfish presence. Many thanks, Andras


    1. We had one year of jellyfish out of twelve I have experienced in Sicily so far. It depends on the weather conditions in Spring around the Mediterranean, but it is a decidedly rare thing. If you are unlucky enough to get a jellyfish year, you need to ask the locals which beaches to avoid. It depends on the sea currents so you get them on some beaches and not others. Jellyfish near beaches are definitely a rare event, though.


So, what do you think?
