BEACHES AND SOLARIUM IN ORTIGIA
Despite being an island surrounded by the sea, Ortigia does not have long and sandy beaches, but still offers the opportunity to enjoy its beautiful sea thanks to the solarium, wooden platforms with ladders, created between its cliff, most of which are free of charge.In our apartments you will find beach towels and parasol … you just have to wear swimsuit, flippers and googles and in 140 meters you will find the solarium del Forte Vigliena. If you love the orange and pink colors of the sunrise reflected on the sea, this solarium will be your constant destination every morning.If you prefer a well-equipped solarium, with lawn chairs, parasol and open bar, then you should opt for the Solarium Nettuno, always a few steps from La Gorgone Ortigia Apartments.
Further south towards the Castello Maniace, we find the little beach of Cala Rossa, which is accessible by a ladder.
Really incomparable to bathe in the blue sea of Ortigia having as a view the ancient buildings and monuments! Going down towards the Fonte Aretusa, the solarium Zefiro offers restaurant service and lounge bar, ideal for an aperitif at sunset. Close to the Aquarium there is also a small sandy beach where you can sunbathe and swim.
Not far from Ortigia, we find another solarium: Sbarcadero Santa Lucia. From here you can admire the island of Ortigia in all its beauty. Finally, along the cycle path, there is another solarium: Solarium dei due frati.
If you think to reach the bike path by bike, a fresh dip in these waters is a must.
