Ispica (Sicilian: Spaccafurnu, Latin: Hyspicae Fundus) is a city and comune in the south of Sicily, Italy. It is 30 kilometres (19 mi) from Ragusa, 50 kilometres (31 mi) from Syracuse, and 90 kilometres (56 mi) away from La Valletta, on the coast of Malta. The first mention in a document of Ispica occurred in 1093, in a list of churches and ecclesiastic departments for administrative purposes, but the territory has been colonized since the Bronze Age.

This is a beautifully clean beach. We enjoy peace and quiet and here that is exactly what we get. Very few tourists, if any arrive here. Mainly local people from Ispica populate the beach during August which suits us just fine. From a very selfish viewpoint I'd really prefer tourists to stay away but I'm not a selfish person so I would really love to share this enchanting place with everyone. Ispica itself is not far away and there are plenty of bars with lots of really great ice cream. The sun is hot and the water is warm. The sand is fine and clean. We usually take a picnic but there are plenty of restaurants.
It is really a beach and a town that you shouldn't miss if you are coming to Sicily.

There are three pools sheltered from the main body of the sea. The floor is fine sand and the water is swallow nearly everywhere. There are caves, some you can go through to move from one pool to the next some a cul-de-sac. There are lots of fish, tiny and not so tiny... lots of snorkelling opportunities. It is generally not too crowded, even on August weekends... maybe because it is not that easy to get to. There are two ways: parking on the East side and a walk on the cliffs or parking West side, going via the "plain" Ciriga beach and walk in the water to the cliff. Depending on the tide there is one or two easy access points: the first to the middle pool via steps, the second (tide dependent) to the beach on the West pool.

The church and the piazza it sits one are a stunning example of Sicilian Baroque. We got to this town by accident, I was not expecting anything like this - Ispica is at least as good as Noto and without the crowds. VISIT

Although I thought the Loggiato del Sinatra square was larger it was still interesting to visit. Located in Piazza Santa Maria Maggiore the nearby church is also an attraction.

It was open late in the evening. It was very quiet but lively at the same time (a group of people was planning something).
The ceilings are amazing.
I have learnt more about the 1693 earthquake and the local response in this church that anywhere else. There is a commemorative plaque explaining when the church re-built started, why, where... a lovely snap-shop of local history and an example of resilience.

Well preserved due to accessibility by the Sea only.
The water is not so deep and could be reached by walking in the water along the coast .
The scenario is absolutely fantastic.
Caves and rocks and colors melts all and mixes with clear water with the sun and the beautiful sand.

This isn't splendid church with an imposing position. It is the focus of the evening Passagiata she everyone is out. Such a lovely place.

Bellissimo palazzo all'angolo della bella piazza Regina Margherita e Corso Umberto, unica opera liberty della provincia di Ragusa, realizzato dal famoso architetto Ernesto Basile. Da ammirare i decori e l'imponenza della struttura. Da vedere !!

Il santuario è molto bello,luminoso, il color oro dà quella maestosità ed eleganza che la caratterizza. È una chiesa semplice ma allo stesso tempo meravigliosa.
