We went to Arenella after visiting Syracuse. It was a real blessing! Turquoise waters, fine sand and splendid colours! There is a public part at no cost. We just loved it! One of the most beautiful and enjoyable in Sicily!

Lovely beach, beautifully clean water, but constant music with DJ commentary completely spoilt it for us. We had a quick dip and beat it back to Siracusa
