You are spending a holiday in the capital city of Sicily, a great place, with a lot of things to do and places to see. And now you’d like to see some of the most beautiful beaches of Palermo. There are two unforgettable places near the city: they are Punta Raisi beach and, not far away, the beach of Magaggiari.
Punta Raisi – The sea and beach of Punta Raisi are characterized by the presence of small rocks, and the water is shallow. Perhaps not particularly suitable for children, it attracts dozens of visitors every year thanks to the colors and reflections of its crystalline sea.
Magaggiari – It is not far away from Punta Raisi beach. Magaggiari is a beach of fine, golden sand, with several lidos, dining and various other services. The beach is at the foot of Pecoraro Mountain, near Punta Raisi international airport. So different and so close at the same time, the two beaches are suitable for all holidaymakers.
Fondo Orsa – You get to Fondo Orsa along the Cristoforo Colombo seafront. It is an ancient tuna fishery, a very quaint place. Beyond the tuna fishery, the pristine waters, typical of this part of Palermo coast, dominate the landscape.
How to get there – Both beaches, Punta Raisi and Magaggiari, are in Cinisi municipality, near Palermo. To get from Palermo to Cinisi, take E90 road.
