  • Beautiful beach near the city of Gela, with fine sand. You need no slippers. It is very flat in the water, and is therefore also suitable for families with small children. We are on the coast road SS115 to Agrigento directions to "Lido Manfria" followed and have parked in the via S. Maria degli Angeli at the roadside. There's a beautiful rock formation with a sand dune at the end of the Bay. You should bring meals and beach umbrella if you stay on this quiet stretch of beach. Otherwise there is a busier section bar ("la Bahia the Joan"). Alternatively, you can take in the next place MANFRIA and there to the "Lido Panama Beach" go. We ate there tasty Arancini and looked to the kite surfers.

  • Manfria is a village and a sea of Gela and consists of checkerboard streets with houses and cottages, where we find streets with names of flowers and fruits, very nice idea! The beach stretches for several kilometers and consists of fine golden sand, suitable for families with children and those who want to relax in General. The sea is blue and clean, unlike most areas near Gela. The most beautiful point is characterized by high cliffs on the sea, where they can be taken great photos. The ultimate symbol of Manfria is the tower which dominates the coast, accessible from the village by car until a few meters away. The Council for the scenery and colors at sunset! Given its location, the village is often exposed to strong winds shaking as a result the sea, then recommend it to those who come from afar to consult well predictions until shortly before leaving.
