Marianelli is the closest and one of the most beautiful beaches of Vendicari. It is located right next to the ruins of Eloro (archaeological site open only in the morning, except on Sundays). It does not offer beach facilities, ideal for those who love the wilderness, but it has a parking.HOW TO GET THERE
Can be reached only by car/motorbike (20 minutes from Syracuse) From the hostel go right, go past the train station, via Ermocrate and go over the big roundabout towards “Noto-Avola” and all the directions (Catania included). Continue past the cemetery with a first set of traffic lights, and past the second traffic light. Keep on going straight ahead.
When you see the blue sign to Catania (on the right) slow down a bit but continue past the exit Catania, and after 100 meters take the first left (following the green sign to Gela-Noto-Avola Rosolini: it is the same road to Catania but in the opposite direction). Once on the motorway Siracusa-Noto-Avola-Rosolini, take the exit Noto. After the exit follow the signs to Pachino - Portopalo CP
On the road Noto-Pachino, after about 5 km turni left when you see the sign "Oasi di Vendicari - Eloro – Marianelli". Go past the underpass and after a while on the left there is a crossroad to Eloro, while going straight you will go to the beach. Continue straight and at some point you will need to go left (there is a wall of a house). Turn left and at the end of this section you will find a bar and on the right, the parking. Then walk 5 minutes to the beach (the small cavea of an ancient greek theatre is visilble along the torrent)
