Located along Sicily’s Mediterranean coastline, Marina di Ragusa is a thriving beach resort with the charm of an old fishing village. Luxury yachts fill the modern marina, lured by Ragusa’s golden beaches, pulsating promenade and traditional Sicilian seafood.
Spend a day at the beach, where you can hire a sun lounger and umbrella from one of the many lidos dotted along the foreshore. The shallow Mediterranean waters are ideal for swimming, while the fine sand is great for a beach volleyball game or a round of bocce.
Wander along the promenade lined with waterfront bars, alfresco cafes and creperies. Book a terrace table at Quattro Quarti, a sophisticated Sicilian seafood restaurant and bar overlooking the beach. After dinner, treat yourself to a crispy ricotta cannoli at Caffe Delle Rose.
Craving some adventure? Hire a sailboat for the day or join a fishing charter from Marina di Ragusa Port. For a taste of local cuisine, don’t miss the seaside farmers market, where you can buy local olive oil, ripe, juicy tomatoes and fish straight off the boat.
Marina di Ragusa is an easy 30-minute drive from the centre of Ragusa via the SP25. There are several daily buses running to and from the marina.
