Catania Beach

Catania Beach

Fancy a relaxing beach day in between all your sightseeing? Catania’s beach, La Playa, couldn’t be better placed. Plus, it’s around 18 kilometres in length, so you’ll never be short on space. The golden shore and bright-blue water create the perfect sunbathing scene while Mount Etna looms in the background. Some parts of the beach have loungers for hire and bars on hand for drinks and snacks.
