quiet gem of Sicilian beach, and- TOMATOES! Mar 09, 2014
After 3 weeks at a volunteer project on Sicily, followed by a week on the road, i wanted to just chill out and eat well for a few days in a non-touristy beach town. Found It!!

Scoglitti is a small fishing town split on the coast by a relatively new harbor, which separates the beaches, effectively, into the deep, sugar sand side with no shells, and the other side with coarser sand & shells galore and far fewer bathers. The townsfolk are friendly, and there are places to stay either on the beach or a few streets away, all quite reasonable. The restaurants are plentiful, but the truly unique item that I discovered here are the loads of local grape/cherry tomatoes. Now, I was never a big fan of the fruit myself. But here i discovered the sweetest, most flavorful tomatoes of my entire life, which, at this point encompassed over half a century of solar revolutions. A local focus, the countryside is surrounded by the plastic- covered quonset shaped greenhouses, and along the roads there are small red trails of spilled produce. All the local market stands have wonderful, fresh foods, so making a picnic lunch or savory dinner is always possible, and quite inexpensive, to boot!
