Great sand beach. Frequently there is wind, so be prepared that you cannot swim every day. Waves might be too high and wind might be too strong.

This is the place of my dreams. Miles of soft sand, shallow water and no neighbors. Sunny all day long, clean and with sand dunes behind. I like that it isn’t in any top 5, 10 beaches. Hidden gem.

The beach is huge, very clean, shallow water and only a few Italians. Quite lonely. Estimated 4 to 500 meters wide and several kilometers long. If there were still palm trees here, it could also be the Caribbean or Asia. Great.

Very beautiful and clean beach. Perfect in June, up to middle of July and September. To crowded for my liking in last 2 weeks in July and August. See also idea for great swimming. Refreshments can be bought in the proximity and public showers are...More

All along this coastline from Pozzalla to Santa Maria del Focallo are sand dunes and long sandy beaches. Easy access, some Lidos offering facilities (umbrellas, sun beds, toilets, cafe). The waves can be a bit wild when the wind gets up, making it more challenging...More

Ispica may never become a huge destination - and we are glad for that. You can enjoy several km of beach without the typical traps of tourism. There are enough restaurants and bars for enjoying sea view dining. Pozzallo is a surprisingly good town that...More

Almost noone around. Clean sand, fantastic views. There are some bars and barbecue zones around. If you are with kids and do not like crowded areas, it is a right place for you.

Where is everyone?! About 5k of beach with no one on. Squeaky yellow fine sand. Warm sea like a bath in June and so shallow we could walk about 300m and it only reached my waist!! Lovely

Long and sandy, and lovely water to swim in. Still warm in October. Great for early morning sunrise walks. May be more busy in high summer, but so large I am sure you could always find a quiet spot!

Great beach for walking and running - I estimate 5 km long. Perfect for a sunrise run and then straight into the sea to cool down!
