south-east sicily beaches

Most of the Hyblaean coastline in the "Province of Ragusa" has fine, golden, sandy beaches, with shallow water ideal for families with children. There are several beaches in the various small towns dotted along the coastline, with about 90% of them being free open access.
 
There are also two valuable nature reserves, "Randello" and "Foce del fiume Irminio" with a typical Mediterranean landscape composed mostly of dwarf palms, lentisk, calcatreppola, sea lilies, salsola, ravastrello, ephedra, juniper and many others.
 
There are three ports along the Hyblaean coast. The fishing port of Scoglitti that supplies delicious seafood restaurants and places in which you can buy fresh fish directly. The new marina of Marina di Ragusa with an international presence throughout the year. Finally, the commercial port of Pozzallo, where there is a ferry service connecting with the island of Malta.
