This is the beautiful town of Licata, in the south of Sicily Island, not so far from Agrigento.
A lot of tipical Sicilian Restaurants.

Holiday in Licata Italy
Oct 2018 • Couples
We visited the marina for a week to join our friends on their catamaran which is berthed there for the winter. Very friendly marina staff, arranged transfer from Catania airport to the marina. They will transfer you to the bus station. We also booked through the marina a vineyard tour to Aziende Agricole Quignones Licata for €16, the tour was amazing, the owner Alberto picked us up and we toured his family vineyard. We were then treated to Sicilian food along with his wines, you must try it, it is great value.
There is a supermarket and shopping arcade attached to the marina. The town looks untidy but has all you need. It is worth a trip to the beach past the commercial dock, make sure you walk further along the beach to the second beach bar area. Also walk up to the castle at the top of the town great views.

What a gem
May 2018 • Business
The marine is an unexpected gem in what is a slightly scruffy town.
The marina is kept very clean and tidy.
Facilities include probably the most helpful and reasonably priced marina chanderlry I have seen.
Cafe is perfect
Staff at marina especially Maria and her husband are so welcoming and speak many languages perfectly. Both I.g is too much trouble even running us arou f town in their car to help out with some odd items.
Definitely a good place to visit or over winter.
Local street life is impressive in the evening and loads of restaurants and street food.
Support this gem on scilllys West coast they really deserve it.

Delicious meals on the beach
Aug 2017 • Family
We had dishes based on freshly caught fish very good. In an absolutely superb panorama. Everything was perfect, food, service, weather... And all for a very reasonable price (about 60 €, dishes and dtrinks)

Amazing front of house service
Sep 2017 • Friends
We spent two nights in the Marina. Great facilitates, excellent help with docking our boat and a safe place to sit out 30 knot plus winds.

The Marina front of house person was amazing. She helped us with tourism information, rented us a car, provided options on where to eat and generally made our whole stay easy and enjoyable.

Wonderful Marina
May 2017 • Family
We highly recommend Marina di Cala del Sole for those in search of a safe harbour to berth their boat. It is only four years old - very clean, and well maintained with some nice grassy areas. The marina is well priced for staying over winter. There are good facilities both in the Marina and the town of Licata with two chandleries - one in the marina and one closer to the commercial port. Andrea at the marina chandlery is particularly helpful. A fabulous well stocked supermarket within a sizeable and modern shopping centre is located next door to the marina.

Licata itself is a hidden gem with the most fascinating history, friendly locals and wonderful produce. The longer you stay the more you uncover so it's a great place for long term berthing. In addition facilities are provided to encourage a healthy social life with an area for BBQ and finske or bowling which is regular every Sunday as well as a popular cafe/bar for Friday night drinks (or any night).

The friendly and always obliging staff at the marina reception (Nino, Maria and Emi) and the onsite managers were on call 24 hours per day to assist our needs in a friendly and prompt manner. They would go out of their way to ensure we were happy.

We are considering returning to Marina di Cala del Sole and one of the primary reasons would be the fabulous service provided by Elia Di Prima from Boat Service who acted as caretaker whilst we were away and was able to offer exceptional mechanical and fibreglass repairs as well as coordinating other services. He was even willing to arrange his barber for our three boys! Electrician Giuseppe Vedda was able to repair anything he put his hands to giving us the peace of mind we needed. Both these gentlemen were very professional, well priced and would bend over backwards to help you.

We highly recommend Marina di Cala del Sole to sailors considering short or long term berthing.

Not your avarage Marina
Jul 2017 • Friends
Our motor yacht was at the nearby yard for the winter Oceanica Naval Cantiere. The rates here are very reasonable for both hard storage and repairs. After leaving the yard we decided to move to the local marina. What a surprise! for a small town the marina is a gem it only holds about 150 boats so service is quite personal, the main receptionist Maria is so helpful, polite and multi lingual, likewise the marina staff are great, we were met by a rib .5 km from the entrance without even asking, given a alongside berth until the wind dropped and moved next morning. Any request for service is immediately attended to.
The Nautils chandlers on site are equally helpful running into town to collect items they did not stock and assisting in the purchase of a new rib which was totally outside their range. Unlike most chandlers their prices are as good as you can get at home on the internet so not ripping you off which is a real joy.
The onsite bar is once again reasonably priced and pleasant staff .

The only down side is the onsite restaurant, the owner how doubles as the waiter speaks no English at all and just serves you want he thinks you might want, he berated his young waitress who does speak English for "interfering" finally we walked out never to return.

The town deserted during the day really comes alive at night especially Fri, sat and Sunday. with hundreds of people out till late enjoying the food, street market and reasonable volume music.

Their are plenty of good restaurants within 5 mins walk of the marina with Gullivers notable for price and quality.
