The campsite has its own scuba diving centre where guests can book private lessons and group excursions. Other facilities include a games room, a wifi room, a playground and ping pong tables.
The restaurant serving pizza and local cuisine is open every evening and has spectacular sea views. A small grocery shop is also available and a snack kiosk opens during the summer season.

Guests can rent cars and motor scooters to visit the local areas and the rest of Sicily.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

The campsite is conveniently set by the sea, for beach holidays under the Italian sun or to use as a base to explore Sicily's coast.
The town of Acireale, famous for its churches, is within walking distance. It also has the Chiazzette walking trail, connecting the town to Santa Maria La Scala via countryside and sea views. Once at the village, stop and have seafood at the harbour trattorias.
The site is within the Etna regional park, and the volcano is only a short drive away.
Catania is also a short drive away and Syracuse and Messina are a little further afield. Another good option is Taormina, to explore its archaeological sites.
