Faro Massolivieri beach
The beach of Faro Massolivieri is one of the small sandy coves that are located in the Protected Marine Area of Plemmirio, along the eastern coast of Sicily and only 10 km from Syracuse. It fascinates for its clear and pristine waters. The cove has gritty golden sand and rocks, ideal for those who want to swim in a small corner of paradise with crystal waters.
The Grotta della Pillirina
Next to the bay there is a cave named “Grotta della Pillirina”, the place of a sad legend of love: two lovers used to meet every night in this cave, but their bond was impeded by the noble parents of the girl, who refused to marry her with a simple sailor. For several nights, the woman remained waiting for her man who did not appear anymore. Then, destroyed by the pain, she decided to throw herself off the cliff.
