Are there beaches in, or near, Syracuse. Have looked at map and google earth but it's not clear.
Doesn't look like there's any but wanted to check.
Cheers in advance for any help.
Siracusa is not a beach destination.
There's a scrap of sand and "beach" on Ortigia at Lungomare d'Ortigia and Via Santa Teresa near the Royal Hotel Maniace
You can swim from the rocks on Ortigia.
There are platform beaches set in summer both on Ortigia and the mainland.
The Musciara Siracusa Resort located on Siracusa’s mainland (with stunning views of Siracusa’s ancient Ortigia) is the only hotel in Siracusa boasting its own private beach.
And then there are beaches across from Ortigia at Isola.
Once again, many thanks for your help.
Very much appreciated.
