Calamosche Beach, or Funni Musca as the locals call it, is the most famous of the five beaches of the Vendicari Reserve. Its position, squeezed between two rocky promontories, makes it a small oasis with a calm and crystal clear sea. A true paradise for lovers of the sea and snorkeling.

Where is Calamosche Beach?

Calamosche Beach is certainly the most famous of the beaches in the Vendicari Natural Park. It is a coastline of about 200 meters, squeezed between two rocky promontories. This ensures that the sea is almost always calm and crystal clear. The beach is sandy and the seabed is shallow, making it ideal for families with children. However, the route from the parking lot to the sea must be planned carefully. As with all the beaches in the reserve, there are no toilets or refreshment facilities. You have to bring everything you need. The area is perfect for snorkeling, especially near the reef where the seabed is deeper. Here, in the various caves and natural hollows, you can observe a wide variety of marine life.

How to get to the beach

To get to Calamosche Beach, take the Pachino-Noto Provincial Road 19 until you reach the entrance to the beach. After leaving your car in the parking lot, you will have to walk about a mile and a half to reach the beach. This is a 15-20 minute walk along a path surrounded by Mediterranean scrub, but with no shaded areas. It can therefore be very challenging, especially in the summer.
