Beach, Punta Secca.
Punta Secca. The Lighthouse.
The Punta Secca lighthouse was built in 1853 and is 35m high. It is visible for 206°, from 318° to 112°.
Punta Secca is a small fishing village, a frazione in the Santa Croce Camerina comune, in Ragusa province, Sicily. The village has a lighthouse, a small port and an old watchtower, the Torre Scalambri. It dates from the 16th century and is next to the harbour.
The town has gained renown as the fictional "Marinella" in the RAI television series Inspector Montalbano, adapted from Andrea Camilleri's "Inspector Montalbano" books. Many scenes are set in 'Montalbano's' home, which backs on to the beach, as well as the beach from where he swims.
