The seaside resort of Marina di Modici, in the south of Sicily, is a fantastic place to enjoy the beach life. Boasting a large bay, fringed by numerous dunes, there’s plenty of space for everyone, and families are well catered for. In July and August this area really comes to life with plenty of sports activities, a market held every day in the square during peak season, and a piazetta hosting live bands. Or you can simply take a walk along the boardwalk, taking in the views. As it’s in the south, Marina di Modica benefits from a lovely warm temperature in and out of season, and it’s never too busy as this wonderful little spot is still relatively unknown to tourists. The city of Modica is just a 15-minute drive away. Here you’ll see striking palazzos, magnificent churches and houses rising from the bottom of the gorge in a higgledy piggledy manner.
