For a dreamy island getaway with all the thrill of a city break, holidays in Sicily offer the full package. Shimmering seas, volcanic adventures and ancient temples are yours for the taking.

As the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily ticks endless travel boxes. Sitting a stone’s throw from Italy’s southern coastline, of course you’ll find sandy beaches and sunshine galore. Yet the abundance of historic sites, Greek architecture and the majestic Mount Etna guarantees your Sicily holiday will be filled with memory making too.

Colourful Towns and Cities in Sicily

It’s not all sleepy island life. The Italian island’s golden-toned towns and cities beg to be explored all year round. From tiny hilltop hideaways to magnificent piazzas, lose yourself among Sicily’s famous cathedrals, winding medieval streets and fragrant food markets. You’re never too far from a traditional gelateria or incredible sea views.

Beaches in Sicily

Encircled by glittering blue ocean, a holiday in Sicily is a must for snorkelers and sunbathers alike.

  • If you fancy a day at the seaside but a night out on the town, choose Palermo’s Mondello beach. Pillow-soft sand and seaside resorts are just a short bus ride from the capital.
  • Arrive in style at secluded Isola Bella beach, tucked away below Taormina town and accessible via cable car. There’s a rocky island to explore, so don’t forget your snorkel.
  • Vendicari beach is a nature lover’s paradise surrounded by sand dunes, lagoons and rocky coves. Bask in the crystal waters and gaze upon the distant ruins of Vendicari island out to sea.
  • You may not find the one-eyed cyclops that gives the Riviera dei Ciclopi its name, but the distinctive volcanic coastline offers unusual rocky beaches filled with geological beauty.
  • Off the beaten track, the beach at Torre Salsa Nature Reserve is home to more turtles than tourists. No facilities, just one spectacular sandy beach and unspoilt scenery as far as the eye can see.
Family-friendly beaches in Sicily

Family-friendly beaches in Sicily

Soft sand, calm seas and first rate facilities mean Sicily’s beaches are a magnet for families that love to be beside the seaside.

  • Lungomare di Cefalù’s aquamarine sea and golden sweep of sand is ideal for beach holidays. Mere steps from picturesque Cefalù fishing village, restaurants and shops are always on hand.
  • Take a boat to Lipari and wade in the crystalline shores of Sicily’s largest Aeolian Island. The pebbles underfoot hark back to a volcanic past, but it’s the warm summer sea that makes it particularly tempting.
  • Located in a sheltered hamlet with handy facilities, Fontane Bianche’s beach is popular for family holidays. Pristine white sand leads into a calm, shallow sea clear enough to count your toes in.
  • Hire an umbrella at San Vito lo Capo beach, part of Zingaro Nature Reserve. The bright turquoise waters, flanked by towering mountains, make it a spectacular spot for water sports.
  • A thousand sandcastles await at the enormous, and relatively quiet, Sampieri beach. Golden sand dunes tempt young explorers, while lunch can be found in the attractive fishing village behind
