The south west area of Sicily, from Syracuse till Correnti island, extreme edge of earth projected in the intersection between the Ionian Sea and the Mediterranean sea, boasts a rich coast of sandy beaches, with a clean sea and from the transparent waters.

More than 8 km of coastline are protected by the Oasis Natural Vendicari , a natural reserve you must visit , walking on trails or simply to lie in the sun and not in pristine beaches , like the beach of Eloro , Calamosche , Cittadella.
