From popular beaches where cafes serve fish straight off the boat to nature reserves and hidden coves, our readers pick their favourite places on Sicily’s dramatic coast
On the south coast, this is close to Agrigento but far less touristy. The beautiful sandy beaches saw allied landings in 1943, but now attract locals for swimming and sunbathing (two sunbeds with a sunshade can be hired for €5). Grangela B&B (from €66 a night) makes a central but quiet base, with welcoming owners and comfortable rooms with balconies and (a rare luxury) kettles. Osteria La Lampara, opposite the port, cooks fish straight from the trawlers; for a snack, the bakery on the Corso Roma sells lovely spinach arancini (fried rice balls).
