Sicily is the biggest island in Italy and in the Mediterranean Sea, an amazing land rich in history and traditions, where art and culture intertwine with wonderful natural beauties. From the sea to the mountains and countryside, from the volcanos to the fishing villages, there are really many reasons why to visit Sicily. As Frederick II, King of Sicily, once said: “I don't envy God's paradise, because I'm well satisfied to live in Sicily”.
The sea of Sicily and its beaches are some of the most beautiful of all the Mediterranean area: you just can’t help being tempted to enjoy life at the beach along its beautiful coastline and many islands. Often ranked among the most beautiful beaches is the beach of San Vito Lo Capo, the small beaches among tuff quarries of Cala Rossa, on the island of Favignana, the Rabbit Island in Lampedusa – ever-present in the list of the world’s top beaches -, the white cliff of Scala dei Turchi, in Realmonte, the small beach of Cala Capreria, within the Zingaro Reserve, Isola Bella in Taormina, the beach of Calamosche between Vendicari and Noto, the beach of Mondello, close to Palermo, and the fascinating Isola delle Correnti in Portopalo, the most southeastern tip of Sicily, where the Ionian Sea joins the Mediterranean Sea. Strongly recommended is an excursion by boat in the Islands of the Aeolian Archipelago or in the Aegadian Islands, or along the coastline of Pantelleria or Lampedusa.
