Facing the Ionian Sea, in the province of Syracuse, Fontane Bianche is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the east coast of Sicily.
This pretty town takes its name from the numerous freshwater springs that flow from the white rocky ridges adjacent to the beach and run into the sea. Developed, from a tourist point of view, from the 1960s onwards, today the area has become a coveted destination for residential tourism, with numerous accommodation facilities including hotels, bed & breakfasts, holiday villages and sports facilities. Don’t waste any more time, plan your holiday in Fontane Bianche today!
The coast is particularly appreciated for the beauty of its white sandy beaches along a coastline stretching for more than a kilometre, with crystal clear waters that are almost always calm, making them suitable for children of all ages, who can swim and have fun in complete safety. If you want to relax completely for a few days, away from the frenetic pace and chaos of everyday life, this is definitely the place for you! Just a few kilometres north of Fontane Bianche is Ognina, a small and picturesque hamlet that is a delight for tourists. Particularly striking is the tourist boathouse area, with its many luxury boats to admire. In the nearby fishing harbour, as a complete contrast, you can watch the fishermen preparing their nets every morning before venturing out from the coast in search of fortune. A few kilometres from Fontane Bianche is the Cassibile Nature Reserve, which covers an area of over 2500 hectares. Through this vast green expanse flows the Cassibile, one of the largest rivers in south-eastern Sicily. Over many millennia, the river has dug a canyon up to 250 metres deep in places. During your holiday in Fontane Bianche, you can also visit the Vendicari Nature Reserve, with the wonderful beach of Cala Mosche, and above all the Pantalica Necropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Of course there is more to Fontane Bianche than beach and sea. The attractions of the area include the excellent local cuisine, which is particularly rich and varied, in true Sicilian tradition. You’ll find everything you need here to relax. What are you waiting for? Take a look at our holiday packages to Fontane Bianche today and get ready for your next exciting adventure!
