Marina di Ragusa is a charming seaside town that offers visitors a great base for an authentic Italian escape. With a dazzling sandy beachfront and plenty of great dining options, the town is an ideal summer holiday hotspot - yet it also manages to maintain a more relaxed atmosphere than some of Sicily’s larger towns, and is great for visitors seeking to experience Italy’s more laid-back side. The modern harbour has breathed new life into the town, and makes it easy to enjoy boat trips around the coastline. Alternatively, there are plenty of spots for sunbathing by the sea, should you prefer to stay on land. When it comes to getting out and about, the spectacular baroque city of Ragusa is only half an hour’s drive away, and the pretty port of Punta Secca is even closer, at less than 15 minutes away.

When to go
Thanks to its southerly location, Sicily enjoys mild temperatures all year round. Spring and autumn are both lovely times to visit, with temperatures in the high teens and early 20s (although up in the hills and on the slopes of Mount Etna it can be significantly cooler). In summer, you can expect temperatures in the high 20s – perfect for spending time on the island's beautiful beaches.
