Marina di Modica, a seaside extension of Modica, is a renowned summer resort; its numerous shops and facilities remain mostly closed during winter, when the few hundred residents are the only people to inhabit the village. Nevertheless, for those who do prefer a peaceful and relaxing vacation this is a very special time, with a mild climate especially in the late spring and early autumn. Thanks to its favorable windy conditions, Marina di Modica has grown as a well-known little “surfers’ paradise”. Surfers and windsurfers from all the South-Eastern Sicily crowd the little bay all the year round. But, above all, it is a summer destination with accomodation and entertainment facilities that make it the ideal place for the summer holiday.
