A sensational coast

The sea and the Gulf

Terrasini is the ideal place for a seaside holiday.  

The marvellous Cala Rossa is a jagged rocky beach characterized by wonderful red-white rocks offering a lovely view. Moving from Cala Rossa, on the extreme offshot of the promontory of Capo Rama, where rocks are white, stands a sixteenth-century watchtower. The crystal-clear water and the small stones of San Cataldo pebbly beach make this place a true oasis. Magaggiari beach in Cinisi is the ideal sandy beach for lovers of sunbathing and is also appreciated by surfers who enjoy the waves when the wind blows. The Faraglioni (red rock stacks) situated off the coast of Terrasini are characteristic of its seascape. The different natural features and landscapes of Terrasini join together the wish for a seaside holiday and the interest for nature. On the one hand, holidaymakers can relax and enjoy beautiful beaches and on the other they can discover some precious areas as the Reserve at Capo Rama, which was founded near Terrasini in 2000 and is managed by WWF. In the reserve (punta link a Terrasini) it is possible to observe many different animal species and plant communities, as the horned poppy flowers, the rare Kermes Oak or the sicilian lizard and the beautifully coloured butterflies. The reserve at Capo Rama is particularly appreciated by birdwatchers..
