This isolated stretch of sand sits between Agrigento and Selinunte on Sicily’s south coast. The two towns are popular with tourists visiting ancient ruins, but relatively few turn off the main road to reach Torre Salsa. Make the most of it by enjoying a nice afternoon with few other tourists around.
This beach town is around eight miles north of Palermo, and has been a favored summer getaway for citizens of Sicily’s capital since the early 20th century. Check out the Art Nouveau pier and the Antico Stabilimento Balneare, an old bath house, in between lying on the beach.
If you want to get out snorkeling, this little cove is 10 minutes by cable car from Taormina. Snorkel then relax at one of the nearby cafés and beach clubs.
