Holidays in
Scoglitti

Fishing village with lovely beaches

On Sicily’s southern coast, Scoglitti is a fishing village and resort with a sheltered marina that bobs with yachts and blue-painted fishing boats. The town is full of grand mansions and piazzas shaded by umbrella pines, while the sea is a brilliant cobalt blue and the coastline mixes wide soft sands and dunes with cliffs and rocks.

Scoglitti holidays are all about relaxation, messing about in the water, watching dramatic sunsets and eating incredible seafood. Scoglitti is close to several fantastic beaches, and has a lively bar and restaurant scene in the evening. The scenery on holidays to Scoglitti is spellbindingly lovely, and it’s well placed for exploring further afield, such as the picturesque hilltop town of Ragusa and the grand Donnafugata Castle. Scoglitti is one of the less well-known resorts along Sicily’s southern coast, but that is all part of its charm.
