Driving the road to Punta Bianca is not a piece of cake
Punta Bianca is a secluded white beach located on Sicily's southwest shore, in Italy, with a horrible road where you can easily damage your car.
Located along the stretch of sea between Porto Empedocle and Licata, the road to the white beach is totally unpaved, narrow, full of holes and very bumpy. It’s totally impassable after rains. It’s a horrible road where you can easily damage your car.
Located within the Riserva Naturale di Punta Bianca, south of Agrigento, the road is 3.9 km (2.42 miles) long starting at the paved Strada Provinciale 71. A 4x4 vehicle is recommended.
In some parts you’ll have to stop and understand how to pass without hitting the lower part of the car. At the beach is an ancient barracks of the Guardia di Finanza built in stone and now abandoned. The road hits an 11% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.
