The sun may be shining uncharacteristically bright here in London this morning, but that doesn’t mean we want to spend our entire summer here.
Much like the majority of the nation, we want to go on a sumptuous beach holiday within the next few months – after all, nothing says relaxation better than sitting on the sand and watching the waves crashing in front of you – although we’re pretty overwhelmed with choice when it comes to location. And we know we’re not alone, either!
When it comes to holidays, whatever the reason or occasion, you could do a lot worse than heading to Sicily, as there’s something there for everyone. Whether you want to climb rocks, scuba dive, or simply soak up the rays undisturbed, you’ll certainly find it in Sicily.
Diving and snorkelling enthusiasts should head to Favignana or Ustica (which you can see beautiful teaser pics of in the infographic created by soloSicily), while wine connoisseurs would feel right at home at Saline di Marsala.
If you want a little bit of adventure along with your relaxing holiday, why not visit Scala dei Turchi? The rocky cliff is situated between two gorgeous sandy beaches, and those semi-fluent in Italian will have already guessed that it’s accessible via a “staircase” formation of rocks. A great thing to do if you’re bored of sitting on a sun lounger all day and want to work for your tan!
If you don’t like the hustle and bustle of busy tourist areas, we’d strongly suggest booking somewhere to stay at the small but very characteristic Macari. The seaside village only has around 200 inhabitants, so you’ll be able to soak up the rays and the culture in peace.
