Literally, it means: Dry Head. This is the town hosting the famous terrace of the Inspector Montalbano, hero of the TV fiction watched over the world in more than 18 countries.
It is 20 minutes driving from Marina di Ragusa and you can get there by cycling on the beautiful seafront pedestrian way starting from Marina di Ragusa harbour.
But it is also famous for having a beautiful lighthouse and a pretty small harbour used by the local fishers and by the tourists to make a quick break from a sea trip to taste an arancino (small cone of fried rise flavored with vegetables, meat or even fish).
Puntasecca has pleasant beaches where are located small wooden restaurants and bars. You will recognize the famous restaurant on the beach Enzo a Mare where Montalbano spends enviable lunches and dinners.
Definitely you cannot miss a swim pretending to be the most famous Italian police man right in front of his beautiful house!
After this, the fish is more than fresh: is just fished and very well cooked like at Scjabica (it is worth to come back on it in a separate post) in the main square before the lighthouse but also taste delicious and several kind of arancine (fried rice pyramids) at Gli arancini di Montalbano.
Enjoy Puntasecca and send your comments for sharing your experience.
