The beach of Torretta Granitola extends over a small inlet between Pozzitello and Kartibubbo, and not far from the high cliffs of Mazara del Vallo, and is formed by both medium-grained sand and rock, with crystal-clear sea between the blue and the green and shallow seabed that slopes gently, thus making this beach suitable for families with children or inexperienced swimmers. The sandy beach reaches below the lighthouse, after which the coast becomes rocky. Presence of posidonia both beached and in water. Also for the type of seabed and for a series of services it is equipped with, the Green Flag was attributed to the beach of Torretta Granitola, by Italian pediatricians.
