  • the hamlet of Santa Maria la Scala consists of a main street (promenade), Backstreets and a pier. the cliff is black because the rocks are volcanic in nature. the beach of the mill allows an access to the sea more suitable for those who can't swim well. on the rocks every summer is mounted a communal solarium equipped with showers and bars. within the village there are several restaurants and pizzerias, a couple of bars and a kiosk. Unfortunately that cars create chaos in summer is high and the beauty of the village are not properly valued. I recommend the walking tour after covering the Chiazzette trail, crossing the Timpa nature reserve.

  • Tiny fishing village dominated by the Timpa nature reserve. The sea is usually clean, but is characterized by the typical cliff of Acireale and not easily accessible for everyone. To hang out in the festive days, when you can enjoy the tranquility without being dominated by certain tourism vulgar and intrusive. Unfortunately lacks an organization that values adequately, with services and effective cleaning, tourist aspects.

Eye if you go on Sunday, the train back to Catania (10 minutes of trip) has very infrequently
