Let's talk a bit about Caucana, Casuzze and Playa Grande.

The beach of Caucana is located between Punta Secca and Marina di Ragusa and is about 5 km far from it. Its 2 km of beach make it suitable for those who love to relax in large spaces and enjoy a clear sea. It is also perfect for families with children and has bars and restaurants within walking distance. Very close to the beach you can go to the discovery of the ancient archaeological park of Kaukana, which has remains of a settlement of the late ancient era (IV and V d.C.) consisting of just under thirty buildings, including old houses, churches and necropolises.

Just 4 km by car and a nice bike ride from Marina di Ragusa, along the coast, you will reach the hamlet of Casuzze. The small village, part of the municipality of Santa Croce Camerina, has a sandy beach just over 1 km long.

Moreover, in 2018 the beaches of Marina di Ragusa, Caucana, Casuzze (along with other beaches in the area) received the Green Flag. The important recognition is given by the Italian pediatricians to the beaches best suited to children, those that have very wide beaches, equipped with beaches, umbrellas, fine sand, clear sea with shallow water and have facilities to accommodate families with children. 

Moving again from Marina di Ragusa towards Donnalucata, we recommend stopping at Playa Grande, a large strip of golden sandy beach. Playa Grande is very convenient because you can relax in peace and enjoy wide spaces and services for a perfect holiday (beach, bar, etc.).
