Sea and family beaches in Sicily

Sicily is the right destination for a beach holiday with your kids. The Eastern side of the island offers you a wide range of beaches to choose from, with golden sand and turquoise sea where your little ones can experience the first impact of the underwater world. For example, you can sunbathe and build sand castles on the marvellous beaches of Donna Lucata, Marina di Ragusa, or Punta Secca, right in front of Montalbano’s house. Even Marina di Ragusa’s harbour and city centre are worth a visit. Here you can find some of our perfect properties for a memorable stay at a stone’s throw from these stunning sandy paradises.

Amusement Parks in Sicily

Sicily is the land of fun for adults and kids. Around the region, you can find a wide range of amusement parks and water parks to slide around with your kids.

Sweets and Ice creams

Sicily’s gastronomical tradition excels in sweets and artisanal ice cream. Discover with your kids the local production of cannoli with ricotta cream, granite and sweets of any kind, handcrafted in the old pastries of the old towns’ city center. A bite of tasty, artisanal ice cream will provide a refreshing pause under the Sicilian sun and conquer your heart. If you also want to try and make sweets on your own, visit Modica. In the baroque town, you can find some workshops and cooking classes where to learn to make your chocolate bar following the antique artisanal tradition and discover all the master’s secrets.

Natural reserves in Sicily

Feed your little explorers’ souls! Take them on a natural safari in the stunning Vendicari Reserve: they will be excited to see the Flamingos bathing at sunset and the wide range of sea fauna to discover with an underwater dip. Follow the paths without hesitation: you will be amazed by the area’s unspoiled nature and get intrigued by the ruins of the old tonnara. The Vendicari Reserve is famous for its magnificent beaches: among the most beautiful in Italy, among its sands the Caretta Caretta turtle finds the perfect habitat to lay its eggs. If you are lucky enough, you can witness their opening and the little turtles running towards the waves.
