For anyone holidaying in the southeast of Sicily, one place that really shouldn’t be missed, is the Vendicari Nature Reserve. There are many reasons for this assertion, none more convincing than the fact that its beautiful selection of beaches are amongst the least frequented in Sicily……at least by humans. Situated on the southern-most part of Sicily’s east coast, Vendicari is a mixture of lagoons (pantano), sand dunes, rocky coastlines, and sandy beaches. It was instituted in 1984 and is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. The high salinity of the ground provides an ideal habitat for Mediterranean maquis, herbs such as thyme and rosemary and other prickly customers such as juniper bushes.

Located on the north slopes of Mount Etna is a very special place that is often overlooked by tourists, the Alcantara Gorge. The locals know this place well, as it is a great spot to cool off during the long, hot, Sicilian summers. Formed by runoff from Mount Etna and the Nebrodi Mountains, the Alcantara River is one of the few rivers on Sicily that runs year round. Several thousand years ago the rivers path was blocked by a large lava flow from the slopes of Mount Etna. The cool water of the river helped to quickly cool the lava, which resulted in the lava crystallizing and forming the unique ballast rock columns that are visible today. Over the next few thousand years the river proceeded to carve a path through the columns resulting in the gorge that visitors see today.

The beach of Eloro is located near the ancient center of Helorus. Despite being close to Lido di Noto, because of the difficulty of access the whole environment has remained particularly private, with the long stretch of sand topped rocky ridges. The water is crystal clear and the depth assumes green colors. Lying within the territory allocated to the Vendicari Reserve, it lacks any form of service, ensuring total naturalness to this wonderful beach. You will reach the beach of Eloro towards a narrow street, but at the the of it you will find a big parking. From there, you will walking through the Reserve for 5 minutes before to get the beach.

Isola delle Correnti L’Isola delle Correnti è una piccola isola di forma tondeggiante, che si estende per circa 10.000 metri quadri, raggiungendo un’altezza massima di 4m sul livello del mare. Collegata a Portopalo da una fine lingua di pietra, incanta per la sua bellezza selvaggia ed incontaminata.

Among the many stairways you know, this is definitely one of the most unusual. You have probably already realized that this is not a real ladder, but of a spectacular stretch of coast thanks to its peculiarity has become an icon of the Sicilian seaside tourism. This white cliff is located along the stretch of sea between Realmonte and Porto Empedocle (Agrigento) and its rock is made of a soft, limestone and a blinding white marl. The nature, as a great artist, has worked this material over time, making it soft and sinuous, with the help of the sea and the salty breeze, creating terraces and smoothing every corner. When you ascend the staircase, you will have the feeling of being in Wonderland, on a huge white meringue. The sea, taking advantage of this sparkling white, will be showing off his blue. A very intense blue, and while sitting on the steps admiring the sea, you will be surrounded by the most pleasant thoughts. The local boys are often diving from the most prominent steps, racing to decide who is the braver; we would not recommend imitating them even though looking at them is a real show. Here the sun becomes dazzling, but to climb safely you should go barefoot or with your slippers, you just have to be careful not to slip, especially on wet rocks. The more daring will reach through the stairway the beach to the west and will then be rewarded with a less frequented place for bathing. By the way, the name Scale of the Turks seems to derive from the fact that in ancient times the ships of marauding Arabs and Turks found shelter in this bay.

Come with us and discover the Plemmirio, the place mentioned by the poet Virgilio in his Aeneid, a promontory that plunges into the deep blue of the Ionian Sea and that has named the Marine Protected Area after. This Nature Reserve, established in 2005, south of the island of Ortigia, Siracusa‘s historic center, is one of the UNESCO sites in Sicily. The sea of ​​Plemmirio laps upon evocative shores like Cape Murro di Porco, Punta Mola, Rive Bianche, Batteria, Terrauzza, Fanusa or the Greek Latomie (anciet quarries.) It ‘s a real paradise made of 2,500 hectares of salt water and beautiful emerald green seabeds, which have given back many amphorae, planking, shipwrecks and other archaeological finds, now preserved in the Museum “Paolo Orsi” in Syracuse. Along 15 kilometers of coastline, the sea waters show a wide variety of colours, ranging from emerald green to turquoise blue, with a thousand shades. We see the rock reflected into the water as in a mirror. Small sandy coves among tangles of sharp rocks that make us long for the right shoes when walking barefoot, trying to jump from one rock to another. We can see sea urchins, mussels and thousands of colorful fishes or “riule”, as the locals call them. The Marine Protected area of ​​Plemmirio has 35 accesses to the sea, some of them provided with ecological wooden platforms, harmoniously inserted in the natural scenery , that make them suitable for disabled people. Let’s choose what to do: trekking, bird watching, Deep Water Soloing, snorkeling or just walking among rocks, quarries and cliffs just to unwind a little bit! We walk and breathe the iodine released by the sea spray, in the midst of so many rupestral plants, until we reach the vast stretches of Mediterranean scrubland with plenty of dwarf palms. Luxuriant at Capo Murro di Porco, the dwarf palm is the only spontaneous species in Europe. And finally we arrive here, where the lighthouse stands, a symbol of this paradise.

Aci Trezza is built in a magic and evocative location, as Omero described it. The origins of the charming village of Aci Trezza are dating back to the eighteenth century, when the Prince of Campofiorito bought the land building the first old town centre. However, in the town’s territory it is still possible to see a small bastion, a square building with two floors, that might have been built in a previous era. This kind of buildings, made using the igneous stone of Volcan Etna, might have been used in the past as small forts. Aci Trezza is built in a magic and evocative location, as Omero described it. The town offers incredible cultural attractions to its visitors. The first one is the Museum Casa del Nespolo, an old house in the old town centre that contains set photos, posters and other material from the movie “I Malavoglia”, directed by Luchino Visconti and based on the novel of the same name written by Giovanni Verga. The movie was filmed in Aci Trezza in 1947, and the cast was made only of actors chosen among the town’s population. The museum also includes “La stanza dei Malavoglia” (the Malavoglias’ room) which displays a permanent exhibition of some material regarding the life and habits of the sailors that inhabited the town during the nineteenth century, including a collection of ancient work tools and everyday life objects. The most interesting part of the exhibition are the pictures of the town taken by Giovanni Verga and its hand-written letters to his brother Pietro. The Faraglioni, (the sea tacks) the same ones that in the Odyssey are described as “the island of the Cyclops”, protect the town from the sea and offer a breath-taking view on the coast and on its wonderful black volcanic sand, that ends up merging with the blue, crystal clear sea.
