“Volare oh oh…cantare oh oh! Nel Blu, dipinto di Blu” sung Italian singer Domenico Modugno. Sounds familiar? Do you see blue when you close your eyes? You’re most probably in need of a holiday, and frankly, is there a better place than Sicily to adopt that sweet Italian way of life? The private pool is an essential part of a holiday rental.
That is why a beachfront villa with a private swimming pool is the best choice for your blue holiday in Sicily. For summer holidays or all year round in sunny Sicily, renting a villa with a swimming pool by the sea is one of the most desirable choices of holidaymakers all around the world. It is, most importantly, a guarantee of quiet and freedom. Just imagine looking at the sea, from your swimming pool! From blue to blue – like a movie star.
Sicily, like the rest of Italy, is a place of idleness, sun most of the time, summer temperatures often. That is why it’s of vital importance to select the most stunning Sicilian beaches. It’s impossible to imagine that anyone could resist the turquoise or crystalline blue colors of the Mediterranean and Ionian waters. The water temperature doesn’t drop below 20°C during most of the year. In summer, better choose the corners sheltered from tourists (for example, coves to be reached by boat) to bathe peacefully and avoid the large ports of Palermo, Messina, and Milazzo. Sicilian beaches differ from each other. The crystal blue lagoon waters of San Vito lo Capo, for example, (a popular touristic spot in the summer), or the Scala Dei Turchi beach close to Agrigento, with its bright and deeper waters, the temptation will be high. Not to forget the unique piscina di Venere, which has several small natural pools created by the rocks rising from the water. You will be surprised by the tranquility and beauty of the area. Curious souls, explore our guide of beaches to choose the ones of your dreams.
The Most Beautiful Beaches
The city is bordered by water. It is a haven of peace in which you can go from discovering the city and its Duomo to relaxing on the beautiful sandy beach and lagoon.
Spiaggia Valle I Muria
In Lipari, stay on the beach Valle I Muria. It is at the foot of the most beautiful cliffs of the island and offers you an intimate moment of privacy that defies all competition.
Forgia Vecchia (Stromboli)
Unheard of, Stromboli beach is an extended layer of black sand. It underlines, even more, the intense blue of the water.
Scala Dei Turchi (Agrigento)
Here is an incredible rock face of an immaculate white that soaks its lips in the waters of the Mediterranean. The color of the water here is not yet equivalent. You can easily climb on the rocks to enjoy the magnificent view it offers you.
Piscina di Venere
The majestic swimming pool of Venus is an intimate and romantic cove that bears its name well. You feel relaxed and protected by the calm and clear waters in which you swim.
Spiaggia Dei Conigli (Lampedusa)
One of the most superb beaches in the Mediterranean Sea, Rabbit Island, as it’s called, is unlike any other island. The turquoise immensity of the water provides a feeling of fullness and well-being. You won’t think of anything else.
Next to Taormina and the Isola Bella peninsula, there’s Lido Mazzaro that makes many people dream of it. A subtle strip of fine sand connects the island to the coast, to the delight of your eyes.
Spiaggia dei Faraglioni
With its high rocks emerging from the deliciously turquoise blue water, the Spiaggia dei Faraglioni in Scopello will really transport you elsewhere.
San Vito Lo Capo
The beautiful sandy beach perfectly matches the clarity of the water around it. Overlooked by the mountains, San Vito Lo Capo is a small corner of paradise that it would be a real shame to miss.
