Pozzallo (Sicilian: Puzzaddu) is a town and comune in the province of Ragusa, Sicily, southern Italy. Four beaches in Pozzallo have received the Blue Flag award by the FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education), an award given to beaches which meet strict criteria dealing with water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management, and safety and other services. Only eight beaches in Sicily have received the Blue Flag, including the four located in Pozzallo.[2]

Pozzallo is now a major summer tourist destination.

It is also a major port which creates the link between Sicily and Malta (about 90 minutes on high speed ferry) for passengers on a catamaran service.
