MARINA DI MODICA
Marina di Modica is situated directly by the seaside, between Sampieri and Pozzallo, on the most southern part of Sicily. There is a large bay with a beautiful sandy beach surrounded by numerous dunes. Marina di Modica is the ideal recreational spot for families and older people.
In July and August, however, the Italians´vacation time, the quiet resort town really comes to life. There are sports activities on the beach, market stalls on the boardwalk, live bands and folklore in the "Piazetta", as well as numerous bars and discotheques.
From the city square a wonderful seafront begins. Here, every sunday in the off-season and every day in the peak season marketeers are placed for selling jewellery, clothes, bags, and toys.
In July and August, a market with a numerous number of stands for fruit, cheese, and clothes takes place at the end of the seafront where a big public place directly to the sea is located.
Restaurants, bars, ice cream parlours, supermarkets, and much more can be found either in locality or directly in the seaside.
Fresh seafood and shopping malls can be reached in a few minutes by car from Marina di Modica.
Warm temperatures in the low season - still a great place for swimming - and spring like conditions in winter permit endless walks along the boardwalk or along the beach and the scenic coastline - with or without your dog.
Marina di Modica is certainly one of the few spots in Sicily that has not yet been overcrowded by tourism. Here, as well as in all of the region of Ragusa, you can get to know the real Sicilian life!
Pozzallo and Modica
Only 6 km away from our small bungalow park is the fishing village Pozzallo. Here you can find all your shopping needs, including fresh fish, and a beautiful "Piazza" surrounded by palm trees.
