looked up on Google for a sandy beach and found Fontane Bianche was only a short train ride from Syracuse. Easy walk to beach from train station, gorgeous beach, water crystal clear. So many beach chairs with umbrellas, and not costly. Food delicious at canteen....More

This beach only gets cleaned during the summer season. In October it is full of Algae and rubbish. Very disappointing.

We went there by train, on the way there was good, the way back we had to wait due major delay, so I’d recommend to go there by car. The beach is clear, you can choose between free beach and where you have to pay,...More

Clear water, beautiful cliffs, nature, sand beach, not in a big city — what else you need for vacation.

The place is too touristy for my taste, place was full. And the beach was full of rubish, specially cigarrete butts. There are much nicer beaches around.

You can't fault the beach, the water is beautiful and crystal clear, only issue is that it is very popular, so inevitably very, very busy. We went towards the beginning of mid / low season (September) and, due to the great weather, the place was...More

Beautiful beach just a short drive away from Catania. We parked as far end by the rocks and paid 3 euros. The free section without paying for chairs was on left side but there isn't any shade.

Parking can be a real challenge & we abandoned one of our attempts & returned home so I would avoid visiting at the weekend if possible. The water is clear & there are some gentle waves which seem to pick up in the afternoons for...More

Generally speaking the beach at Fontana Bianchi was dirty, litter, cigarettes buts, a shame because the water was very clean and the beach shelves gently. We used the beaches at Noto (The LIdo) there is a charge, for sun... More
