There are 3 blueriband beaches in the province of Ragusa: Marina di Ragusa, Santa Maria di Focallo and pozzallo. But, there are loads of little quieter beaches. POrto Ulisse between Pachino and Pozzallo is beautiful, Cava d'Aliga, Marina di Modica, Bruca, Donnalucata, Punto Braccetto, Punta Secca... just stop the car and get out.

Thank you for the reply. Do you suggest we stay in Marina di Ragusa? Or do you like any other small towns around there? We are looking for small not to touristy towns to stay.

Thanks for any help

Prego Lisa,

Do you plan to hire a car?

Marina di Ragusa is the most posh and best serviced resort along this stretch of the coast, and well connected via public transport to Ragusa by Tumino and Interbus, but some of the smaller resorts are lovely if you plan to hire a car, and some also are well connected via public transport.

None of these towns is very touristy, even Marina di Ragusa. This is a very lovely and local coast.

Donnalucata is the next village along from Marina di Ragusa and is much more of a n village feel to it, even in August. Or Sampieri - if you dont mind a bit of night life in August. Punta Secca/Punta Braccetto have nice beaches and are quieter, but that also means you need to get in the car to buy stuff.

Donnalucata and Sampieri are very good considerations.
