Santa Maria del Focallo

Santa Maria del Focallo beach

After the coast of Pozzallo there is a suggestive coastline that includes the beaches of Santa Maria del Focallo. Located between Ispica and Pozzallo along the southeastern coast of Sicily, 50 km from Ragusa, it is known for the beauty of its golden and fine sandy beach, full of small dunes, eucalyptus and acacia trees. The sea that laps this stretch of coastline is blue and crystalline and hosts thousands of tourists every year. These long free and uncontaminated beaches are served by a few beach clubs. Legambiente and Italian Touring Club have counted it among the most beautiful beaches in Italy and included in the “Blue Guide 2014”.
