Travel Fantasy: Sicily

This really exists! At the Citta del Mare hotel in Sicily, you can slide right into the Mediterranean Sea. Wouldn't you love to be splashing down there right now?

heijah said...

well, this is rather a travel night mare. I don't like it when they put concrete and artificial buildings onto a beautiful coastline. further, I don't see tourists connect to nature this way... please, this has to stop!

Rochelle said...

Adding this to my list of places to go! :)

domestikate said...

Wow. This looks AMAZING! Total travel lust!

They found the perfect way to ruin a beautiful coastline, blue plastic, come on. Sicily is nice but I'd rather recommend to just jump in from a cliff. Less is more.

Promotional Pens said...

That is awesome!

Helen said...

It looks fantastic and also a little scary, because of the rocks.

For the people who are complaining, give it a rest! It's amazing! This place has been there for years. It's not as if they did this to the entire coast of the island! I am fortunate enough to have lived there AND visited citta del mare! It's as awesome as you imagine!

Carla Mulli said...

I've been there! When I was like 5 I remember that there is a cave to get back to the stairs after you've been in the ocean, that wasso fun!

Oh WOW!! No way.. this hotel in Sicily is way so cool!! I gotta book an accommodation in this hotel.

Ex Addict said...

To get back up. To the right side of the last slide down to the ocean. There are a set of steps go go back up to the first pool closest to the ocean. There you have to walk to the top to ride again. Ps. It's looks great but isn't so good if you aren't a sea person.

Water Slides could just be the solution to your kid's nagging for a beach party or an out-of-town vacation. Visit Water Slides for more.
