Then Punta Secca is an obvious place. We were here in the end of October, with weather that was a lot better than a good danish summer. That doesn't hurt the experience.
The apartment: Nice, clean, well-equipped, HUGE terrace with nice furniture and shade if necessary.
That is very much okay. The apartment itself is not luxurious, so that is not why it gets a big 5. So why 5 ? It is located 100 meters from the beach, no matter which way you go. The beach is the best one we have encountered on Sicily (3rd time on the island) - that's one star. The quality of the apartment is higher than the price - we also give one star for that. It's so calm here, that it's almost impossible to not relax and just enjoy life and get your pulse down. We give that 1 star. 2 absolutely excellent restaurants and one amazing in town. We give that 1 star. The last star goes to the host Rosario, who's helpfulness itself. Was available 24/7 even though we didn't need it.
We will gladly return ! Actually dreaming of it already :)
Punta Secca as a holiday destination
It's so cozy here. the town is an oasis and time stands almost still. Nothing really happens, the beach is lovely. Restaurant Sand and Scjabica are excellent seafood restaurants and the price is - in proportion to the quality - incredibly low. We also had a nice pizza at Rosengarten when we arrived 23.30 ! In Punta you don't have to go to bed hungry ! You are in a GOOD position.
At the grocery store in town you can find most supplies. And they're both kind and helpful. Very nice little place.
And the there is Montalbanos' house. Located down to the beach by the tower. There were daily buses that arrived to drop off guests so the town's population almost doubled :)
