Portopalo di Capopassero
Situated in the extreme southern tip of Sicily and thanks to its strategic position, Portopalo di Capopassero has been a crossroad of civilizations of cultures challenging the Mediterranean sea. The view from the sea of the Spanish fortification and the imposing statue of the Virgin Mary it's just breathtaking. In front of the town, we also find the Isola Delle Correnti (Current Island) so called for the presence of strong eddies that are formed by the meeting of the Ionian and Mediterranean sea and described as the divers paradise thanks to its beautiful underwater world.
Punta Secca is the last main site of our 3-day cruise in the South part of Sicily. Punta Secca is a small fishing village outlying hamlet of the town of Ragusa, inhabited in winter and buzzing in summer. As every small coastal village, Punta Secca has its own little lighthouse built in the village’s charming harbor and a tower clock built during the medieval period. The village has gained renown in the TV series Inspector Montalbano, written by the Sicilian writer Andrea Camilleri; many scenes with Montalbano’s fictional home are set in a house standing right to the beach and visible from the sea during our cruise.
Donnalucata is an ancient fishermen village built during the Arab domination of Sicily in the southern coast of the Ragusa province. The particularity of this area is the blue color of its waters and the golden sandy beaches along the coast.
