The Cittadella dei Maccari beach is located at the extreme south of the Vendicari natural reserve. You can arrive here from the Provincial Road SP19 Noto Pachino. It also can be accessed using the entrance to the reserve or following one of the roads in the direction of San Lorenzo. Here we are also in the Natural Reserve, this ensures a clean and clear scenery with Mediterranean vegetation behind. We are also in front of the archaeological site “Cittadella”, so called because here stood a small town in Byzantine times that you can visit the necropolis and Trigona, a particular kind of church. Visible even an old Farm for the production of wine, recently restored which host natural and cultural events in the area.
Further north we find a beautiful beach in Vendicari, often reserves for the reproduction of the Caretta Caretta Turtles that between here and San Lorenzo come to nest.
After the sandy beach heading south there is the beautiful cliff of Contrada New Land, which continues in the mixed coast of neighboring seaside village of San Lorenzo.
