Marina di Modica beach, Sicily


Although it is surrounded by low rise suburbia, the one kilometre long Marina di Modica beach feels wide open and spacious.  You can park on a rough patch of gravel near where a big swampy pond cuts into the beach. There are acres of soft orange sand and, even in August, there is plenty of room for ball games and the like, particularly at the eastern end. At the western end, there are some some dinghies and wind surfers. But the sea can be very gentle. 7/10
