Spiaggia di Sampieri
Spiaggia de Sampieri is a long shallow beach with local fishing boats hauled up on the sandy shoreline. Frequently listed as one of Sicily’s most beautiful beaches, it has fine golden sand and a few rocks.
Located on the southeast coast of Sicily, this busy beach extends for about 2 kilometres. It has a small pine forest area providing shady areas for picnics and parking (fee).
Facing south, it is ideal for families with children as the sand slopes gently down to the shallow turquoise waters. There are excellent facilities including showers, picnic areas, beach volleyball, lifeguards, bars and a restaurant. Beach shacks also offer deckchair rentals, umbrellas and pedal boats.
At the far eastern end, known as Pisciotto, there are high cliffs topped by the ruins of Pisciotto Bruciato (also known as La Fornace Penna) a former brick factory. It’s the best area for snorkelling and diving.
If you visit on the first of May, you can join in the Tomato Festival which marks the start of the Sampieri holiday season.
