Pozzallo can be found about 33 kilometres from Marina di Ragusa. It is the only town in the entire Ragusa coast to be an independent municipality since 1829. It is also the largest in that it has about twenty thousand inhabitants. It originated in the fifteenth century when the Count of Modica built a tower (Torre Cabrera) both to protect the territory from pirate raids and to protect the commercial activity of its port. From that moment Pozzallo became the most important port of call in the Modica District. Today it is a modern town with its seaport and ferries to Malta.
Like Marina di Ragusa, Pozzallo has had a Blue Flag for its beautiful sea and the beauty of its beaches for several years. The town offers bathing establishments with umbrellas, deck chairs and showers. Numerous clubs for a lively night life.
