Temperatures are pleasant in the winter season, the only period in which there is more frequent rain, while in summer the weather reigns supreme.
According to the greek historian Strabone, Punta Licosa owes its name to the siren Leukosia, in fact he writes: “Whoever navigates the Gulf, from Posidonia, sees the island of Leucosia, a short distance from the mainland, whose name takes its name from one of the Sirens fallen here after they , as it is said, they fell into the abyss of the sea. In front of the island is the prmontory in front of the Sirenusse, which forms the Gulf of Posidonia. ” (from: Geografia, Book VI, 1,1) Legend has it that Leukosia is one of the three sirens that Ulysses met on his journey, in the Homeric Odyssey. Here Leukosia committed suicide after failing with Ulysses, who managed not to be ensnared by her song, and was transformed into a rock. Today the current Licosa is a promontory characterized by a forest park covered by typical Mediterranean scrub. Punta Licosa is a Protected Italian Marine Reserve.
