FONTANE BIANCHE BEACH

 FONTANE BIANCHE BEACH

Fontane Bianche beach is about 18 km from Ortigia.

It is characterized by a coastline of 3 km of white sand, with numerous sources of fresh water that flow from the bottom. Hence its name Fontane Bianche.
The beach of Fontane Bianche has a transparent sea that slopes gently, suitable for children of any age, thanks to the warm temperature of its waters.
On the beach we find in the summer both stretches of free beach accessible to all, and several beach resorts, equipped with deck chairs, umbrellas, canoes, pedal boats, showers, services and cafés provided with drinks, ice cream, coffee, sandwiches and pasta dishes.
