With almost a thousand miles of coastline, Sicily is a beach lover’s paradise. While many of the beaches are pebbly, there are plenty of stretches of sand to be found, too. Here are some of the best.

This popular holiday town boasts a long golden beach great for a relaxing few days. It gets busy here in the July–August peak season, but the weather is good enough to come here in the shoulder season, too.

Torre Salsa
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.

Isola Bella
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.

Spiaggia Valle Muria
Head to the island of Lipari in the Aeolian archipelago to visit this pebbly beach, accessible by bus from Lipari Town. Don’t forget to check out the view from Quattrorocchi viewpoint,
