Things to do in Marina di Ragusa
The tourist port of Marina di Ragusa is one of the biggest ports in Sicily, with 800 dockings for yachts and fishing boats. The port makes a great romantic stroll at night, being lit up by beautiful blue lights. Or for a bit of history, you can see the remains of Tower Cabrera, a lookout built in the 16th Century – but only the walls remain nowadays.
You can also check out the Archaeological Park of Caucana, a museum that has preserved the ruins of the port city of Caucanca, and if you’re interested in maritime history, the Archaeological Museum of Kamarina showcases all the objects recovered from the shipwrecks of commercial ships. These objects include vases, statues and amphoras (ancient vessels used like we use storage jars!)
Take a short journey from your Marina di Ragusa accommodation into any of the surrounding towns and you’ll come across tiny streets, baroque buildings, and spectacular balconies.
If you venture to Mazzarelli, in the centre of Marina di Ragusa, it’s rich in pubs, cafes, and restaurants, even nightlife, beach club bars, pizzerias, patisseries and happy hours – it’s the holiday of dreams no matter your age.
Marina di Ragusa festivals
Addio all’Estate marks the end of summer in Marina di Ragusa, usually in the first or second week of September, taking over the town. With a variety of market stalls and stands lining the streets you can taste and try traditional dishes and buy all kinds of hand crafted objects.
This is followed by spectacular firework displays, with plenty of music and dancing carrying on through the night. Marina di Ragusa accommodation tends to fill up at this time of year as many want to experience this festival so we recommend you get in there quickly!
