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.

Water was dirty. Had high expectations. Disappointed, but still made most of my day. If in the area, worth a look.

We loved the Fontane Bianche beach for it's sand and shallow waters, which is quite suitable even for little kids. But - the beach does not have a blue flag (...), there are no public sanitary facilities and therefore I would rather not come here...More

This is a lovely beach, particularly for families. It is very shallow and is just lovely for children. It is just amazing how far you can walk out into the bay!

The beach at Fontane Bianche is perfect for young kids. Beautiful sandy beach with a long stretch of shallow water. Our kids wanted to spend the entire Sicily trip at that beach so we visited 3 days. The water was very calm on 2 days...More

Hi, That's a difficult decision. The beach at Taormina was more 'wow' and stunning, but Fontane Bianche was bigger, sandy and although it was as busy at Taormina, you could walk out of the way to get away if you wanted. As... More
