This is a very good and long sandy beach, relatively uncrowded, at a walking distance from the harbor. The water is clean and clear and usually calm. There are some stone terraces on the water. Better than most in the area.

Long sandy and clean beach. There are a lot of sunbeds to rent but also some free sand if you prefer not to spend money. There are a lot of restaurants to have lunch. You have to pay the parking in the summer.

It is more stone beach with slippery stones under the water. We stopped by on our way to Palermo because it is listed on internet. There are better beaches for swimming in Sicily. I do not recommend this beach after sunset. There are a lot of flies.

A lovely sandy beach with clear waters. A couple of small cafés/bars are at the back of the beach for refreshment, which even stayed open for a couple of mad English people in the rain.

Beach is quite clean, very big and not crowded (mid September). It's located 15-20 minutes walking distance from Castellamare centre.

There's much to say about the beach. One of the best beaches I have seen. There are many restaurants that offer Sicilian specialties.

The beach is very long and beautiful. There are many lidos where you can hire umbrellas and sunbeds. There is also plenty of space if you want to bring your own umbrella and towel. The water was clear and warm. When we visited this beach, it was wavy so it was very fun. The beach is a mixture of fine... More
