Parks & Nature
From Belluccelli it is a 10 minute drive to the Vendicari nature reserve that boasts some of the finest sandy beaches in Sicily. These beaches are pleasingly under populated even in the midst of summer. Vendicari is also home to thousands of migrating flamingos, and sea turtles nest on its beaches.

This is the perfect place for travellers who love enjoying nature and the great outdoors. There are limestone cliffs above the valley floor and suggestive small lakes you can access along the path down into the gorge.

Portopalo di Capo Passero is in the most Southern tip of the South East of Sicily and a 25 minute drive away from Belluccelli. We find its beach very attractive, with its crystal and turquoise waters and very much enjoy its the magical sunset.

Pozzallo is an important commercial and fishing port but is also a popular tourist resort. In the summer, the population swells with visitors who come to enjoy the town’s four beaches, all of which have received Blue Flags in recent years, attesting to their cleanliness, their ecological pedigree and the quality of the water that laps them. Malta is close by. Frequent ferry and hydrofoil crossings make it possible to travel between Malta and Pozzalo in just 90 minutes, something to bear in mind if you’re staying in Belluccelli.

The old fishing village Marzememi is a 15 minutes drive from Belluccelli. On the south side is the little fishing harbour with its fleet of colourful wooden boats, on the others a series of charming buildings, the tonnara, the prince's aristocratic palazzo and a row of fishermen's houses, whose sky blue doors and potted red geraniums Narrow streets lead off the main square. Marzamemi is worth visiting at any time of year, but it really comes into its own in the high summer months, when visitors and locals mingle in the open-air bars, sipping on sundowners and cooling down after a hot day. It also harbors excellent seafront fish restaurants, such as La Cialoma.

Modica, like the other towns in the Val di Noto, was badly damaged in the 1693 earthquake and largely rebuilt in Sicilian Baroque style. It is divided into two parts, “higher” Modica and “lower” Modica, which are connected by numerous flights of steps. Palazzi and houses rise from the bottom of the gorge seemingly stacked one on top of the other. Magnificent churches, with their inspiring domes, bell towers and intricate facades, punctuate the red-tiled roofs and one is struck by the uniform beauty of the whole. The centrepiece is undoubtedly the beautiful Church of San Giorgio, though the “Castello dei Conti”, surveying the town from atop a rocky outcrop, is also very impressive.
