A campsite with dorms right at the sea - but 10 km away from Catania center. Wrong directions: Bus 427 does not run anymore, only Bus "D" (take a bus from the train station to Via Paolo Borsellino). Very friendly staff - let me stay alone in a 4-bed-dorm, because it was Off-season (September). Because of that it lacked of atmosphere as everything was closed, deserted and a bit run-down, the only bar/ restaurant was open till 9:30 p.m. There was no AC and the rooms very humid. Good for the beach.
The bungalows were small, very simply equipped and not really clean. The shop which is situated in the camp has very limited assortment of goods. Close to the camp there is a very noisy discotheque it was nearly impossible to sleep because of the noise. The transport from the airport or city centre to the camp is also not so easy. It exist a time schedule (the buses should goes every 20 minutes). It is definitely not true. We waited every day minimal 40 minutes (1,5 hour was not rarity).
