Acitrezza, Aci Castello and the Riviera of the Cyclops (20 min by car): Some year ago there were just fishing villages, today it is a summer resort destination. There are some equipped beaches, restaurants and bars. The coast owes its name to a Homeric legend, according to which the towering black rocks that rise from the sea - really big chunks of solidified lava - were thrown from the blinded Cyclops, Polyphemus, in a desperate attempt to hit Ulysses on his escape.
