In Ragusa province, on Sicily’s south coast overlooking the Mediterranean sea, Scoglitti is a peaceful seaside resort which is increasing in popularity thanks to the region’s natural attractions and a sea of unparalleled beauty.
As an old fishing village it has an important port and fish market with fresh fish arriving every day from the open sea. It is a lively, rapidly growing destination which could now be a little too noisy for anyone looking for peace and quiet.
With beautiful golden sandy beaches everywhere, beach facilities and a deep blue sea, it is quite busy in summer. If you’re looking to stretch out in the sun in a peaceful spot we recommend that you go a little further from the town along the Spiaggia della Forestale beaches which are still remote and relatively deserted with grassy sand dunes and little more than the sound of the waves to disturb you.
Scoglitti’s position is ideal for a visit to a number of interesting artistic sites. If you’re in the area don’t miss out on a visit to Donnafugata castle. It is a nineteenth century manor house whose more than 120 rooms are open to visitors and an opportunity to soak up the aristocratic atmosphere of the last Bourbon ‘leopards’.
