How to get to Marianelli beach, the jewel in the crown of gay Sicily? About 5 km from Noto on the Noto-Pachino, turn left after the roadman’s house towards the excavations of Eloro or Noto Marittima and follow the dirt road to the beach after the entrance to the finds. The gay friendly and naturist beach is the second inlet and can be reached on foot past the mouth of the small river: getting to the beach is not easy, but it’s worth it! Or 8 km from Noto on the Noto-Pachino, turn left towards the Vendicari reserve before two red silos (which are on the right of the road), follow the dirt road up to a gate, jump off the wall and descend to the beach (in this case we immediately get to the one served to gay bathers). Alternatively you can also reach Colonna Pizzuta, park in the reserve beach, walk to the beach, proceeding south.
