Summer Fun at La Playa of Catania
From the Port of Catania to the South entrance of the city, lies about 12 km (7.4 mi.) of golden sandy beach with shallow water ideal for children to swim and play. The “Viale Kennedy” at the Playa, is a long avenue by the coast with alternative bathing venues, many private beaches or “lidos” and free beaches. On all private beaches buying a daily ticket from 4 € to 10 € at the entrance, even if you’re not a member, gives you access to a parking lot, changing rooms, showers, restaurants, bars, and even sports-facilities to play tennis, soccer, beach volleyball, and bocce. The majority of the beaches have swimming pools and water games. You can lie in the sun drinking and relaxing while listening to the music being played by a DJs, or you can rent a beach umbrella and a sun bed by the water. The children can mingle at the mini club, leaving their parents some free time to play a sport or enjoy a ride on a pedal boat. The facilities are open from 8am until 8 pm. Sunset brings more excitement as some of these venues turn into “nightclubs under the stars.” African and American bars are illuminated with brilliant lights, setting the stage for dancing on the sand, where shoes are optional! After all, dancing barefoot on the sand is a “must” for summertime fun! Amunì’s favorite is Playa International Tourist Village, providing activities and good times for all ages from morning to night. Buon Divertimento! Enjoy.
