How will you spend your days at Floripa?
Let’s have a look!
How start the morning
You can wake up early, watch the sunrise and start your day with a nice walk on the beach.
For those who love being in shape, the beach is also perfect for jogging.
Sometimes we also teach our yoga classes at the beach.
You have to know that Santa Maria del Focallo beach is really peculiar because it has both soft and hard sand, so it’s ideal both for jogging while wearing sneakers, and for barefoot walks. Everything is perfect for you to enjoy this spectacle of nature !
Breakfast Time is a MUST !
Enjoy Breakfast with the company of all the other guests!
Simona and Giovanna will treat you with many many deliciousness.
Breakfast is served every day from 7.30 to 10.30, and every morning you will find a big international buffet with:
coffee, cappuccino, tea, fruit-juices, yogurt, eggs, ham and cheese, home made cakes, several kinds of pastries and bread, home-made jams, Nutella, fresh-fruit salad, oatmeal, different kind of milk and gluten free options too.
Most of our guests wait until after the morning yoga class and enjoy our breakfast all together. You can make friends with people in the house while you sip a creamy cappuccino (vegan options available, of course!) and try the freshly baked cakes that Simona makes every morning!
LAZY OR ACTIVE MORNING ?
Hang out in our hammocks, take a (free) bike and explore the small forest close to the B&B, or go back to the beach for some water-activities!
All the options are available for you depending on how are you feeling to live your day.
Our equipped beach area is located only 300 meters (5 minutes’ walk on the beach) from the B&B and we are so proud that Santa Maria del Focallo earned the Blue Flag award, which is awarded only to the best and cleanest beaches worldwide. There you will find comfortable sun loungers, parasols, rackets and balls, a beach volleyball camp to play with your friends.
Depending on the wind conditions, you can choose between SUP (stand-up-paddleboard), windsurf, kitesurf, or a boat excursion. Ettore, Mayo, Michele and Luciano are ready to teach you all the bases and best tricks for you to have fun in the water!
If you know already how to ride the waves, we also have spaces for you to store your equipment, or our to be rented.
Also, for fun lovers, we have a beautiful Banana rubber boat that is a lot of fun to ride together with the other guests (get ready to get wet).
TREAT YOURSELF W/ the LUNCH BOX OPTION
You can decide if enjoy your lunch at the house or choose the Box option : we gonna bring it directly at the beach for you!
Everyday Simona and Giovanna will prepare for you a delicious vegetarian/vegan buffet – they love cooking traditional Sicilian dishes, but in a healthier and super tasty way!
You will absolutely fall in love with the variety of our rich lunches; water and wine are included.
In addition, at the B&B you will find a kitchen, where you can cook your own meal, be it either fresh fish just caught in the morning or a good fresh pasta with the famous Pachino tomatoes, onion and ricotta salata (a specialty of the area).
If you don’t feel like cooking, from June till September you will find the village Rio Favara Beach at less than 400 meters down the beach, with a restaurant and a bar. In the same area, but on the coast road along the beach, you will find a well stocked delicatessen, serving delicious hot food (including pizza), at affordable prices. About 1 km. from the B&B there is a grocery store, easy to reach by bicycle (we provide them for free use), where you can buy food and different kinds of supplies.

After lunch, Floripa respects a rule of Sicilian culture: the break after lunch, and from 2 pm to 4 pm silence is respected and it’s “siesta time “. You can sleep in the cool, air-conditioned rooms, or (most recommended) on our hammocks.
If you want during the afternoon you can simply read a good book while waiting for the beautiful sunset.
If you feel super active, you can enjoy several activities at the beach such as beach volleyball, a swim, water sports…and, several times per week, we also organize Yoga Workshops at the house to improve your practice!
