“Over rated beach”

Spiaggia Fontane Bianche
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Being from Florida I'm naturally spoiled. Getting to Fontane Bianche was interesting, but a pleasant drive none the less. The beach in town was sooooooo crowded and small. This time of the year the sea grass had stacked up along the shore and dirtied up the water. Not so impressed. Taormina beach was better.

My family and I live near Catania and Fontane Bianche is our favorite beach close by. On or off season it is always well maintained, a rarity in Sicily, and the people are generally very pleasant. During the on season there is a lido with chairs and umbrellas for rent as well as paddle boat with and without slides. It is worth noting that during the off season the bathrooms and food items are not available.

Go to the end of Fontane Bianche and leave your car free on many available spots around. Sneak via the holiday resorts or use the public entrance around 500m before the end. There are some bars with drinks mostly, showers are working since June.

This is a sandy, clean beach to come with a family and children. Basically empty until the end of May. Water super clean, shallow for around 100-150m, cold'ish :-) Enjoy!

We went in a sunny and warm Sicilian day of October and the beach was so beautiful and charming!
The water of the sea is very clear and being a little bay, make it very clean and calm. There are couple of big rocks just not far away from the shore, from where it is possible diving or just enjoy the marine wildlife.
Highly recommended for a lovely day at the sea as a family, couple or friends.

Visited in November, this was a really lovely quiet oasis not too far from Syracuse. There were many wonderful luxurious looking beach houses and hotels close to a lovely safe beach for swimming
