Cavagrande del Cassibile

Reviewed By Creamy7777 - Varna, Bulgaria

It takes half an hour to get to the water and the same or longer back in the heat, but it is worth every step! Amazing experience, postcard views and clear spring water to swim in.

Spiaggia di Gallina

Reviewed By Sophie G - London, United Kingdom

We drove here and paid just a few Euros to park the car for half a day just on the beach. This price included access to a shower (we couldn't see a public one).
The beach has spectacular views and was very peaceful (we were there on a weekday).
A little bit tricky to walk into the water due to the rocks but it is possible, and really worthwhile given the abundance of fish to see. Water is clean and transparent.
Recommend taking water or food as there aren't many places to buy this on the beach.

Teatro Garibaldi

Reviewed By Valigessa - Milano

Piccolo teatro restaurato da poco e attualmente in uso.
L'ingresso è gratuito e il personale all'entrata si mostra disponibile a raccontare la storia del teatro e le iniziative per rilanciarlo.
E' una visita che dura poco ma lascia il segno.

Lido il Solleone

Bar and restaurant on the beach on the east coast of Sicily,next to Noto. Beach services with sunchairs, showers. You'll find a private place to drink and to eat grilled fishes at lunch and night, helpful and friendship persons, a really good choice to relax you during your trip in Sicily. We are open all nights. DINNER ON THE BEACH. Seafood freshed at lunch and dinner on the BBQ.

Reviewed By chrisheaps - Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

Quiet (even in August!), clear water, friendly owners who let us in even though we were a couple of euros short of the umbrella hire fee.. You could even grab a drink or food in the bar/cafe if you have some change! Would definitely go back if we had longer in Sicily!
Make sure you have enough cash on you before going!!

Tonnara di Avola

Reviewed By Davide_Cuda - Barcelona, Spain

While the old Tonnara is basically in ruins and can't be visited, the immediate area has recently seen an increase in nightlife, since the opening of new pubs and bars with live music... There's also a pretty good fish restaurant and a pizzeria.
Might be a good idea to close it to car traffic, though the only existing road connects some households to the city so it's not a viable option at the moment...

Spiaggia Pantanello

Reviewed By Jack F - Cecina, Italy

Nel tentativo, fallito, di trovare un po' di posto alla spiaggia di Gallina, più famosa, ci siamo ritrovati su questo arenile di sabbia fine e dorata, e dall'acqua fresca e pulita
Una sorpresa perchè è quasi una spiaggia interna alla cittadina, un po' affollata (in una domenica di agosto), e con pochi cestini per l'immondizia ma per il resto ideale
C'è un amplissimo parcheggio gratuito a ridosso, e bar e chioschi nelle vicinanze
Da consigliare senza indugio

Chiesa di Santa Venera

Reviewed By 62sergio62 - Lecco, Italy

Abbiamo avuto occasione di visitarla di sera, proprio in occasione della festa della patrona di Avola. Una bella serata, in una città piena di gente, con la chiesa agghindata. Da visitare, anche lontano dalle feste.

Cantina Palmeri

Reviewed By Corradolife

non ci sono parole per descrivere la sua bellezza e l'ottimo vino che si produce in luogo , cordiali coloro che ci vivono ...una vera famiglia e come dice..L'eccellenza si ritrova spesso nei sapori autoctoni ed essendo la Sicilia una terra di lunga tradizione vitivinicola, è stata forte la tentazione di “catturare" le sfumature e i sentori racchiusi nel suoi nettari.
