Sicily Beach Holidays

Find your perfect beach...

Sicily has a wonderful mix of beaches, generally determined by the local geography. In the north east the beaches tend to be pebbly or of volcanic sand due to the presence of Etna, whereas in the west and the south you'll find longer stretches of white or golden sand.

The beach from dawn to dusk

With Sicily's long warm summer days you can enjoy your beach holidays from morning to evening - beating the morning crowds, snoozing in the sun, digging sandcastles, splashing in the shallow surf, try some water sports or maybe finding yourselves a hidden cove and watching the sun set across the sea.
