Went to Isolate Bella beach while on a recent visit to Taormina.
Got the cable car from the town down to the beach area.
Walked to the Isola Bella beach down a lot of steps which brings you to a few cafes and bar areas which is good so not got too far to get refreshments.
Walked along the very rocky beach so you definetley need foot ware to walk along the large stones/pebbles.
It is a very crowded area so finding a space was a challenge but we did in the end.
Walked across the stones to get into the sea which again the bay is full of them and the water is cold but refreshing!!
Stayed a while here then had to walk back up all those steps again to goto a coffee shop for a drink and quick bite to eat before walking back down to catch the cable car back upto the town.

Little beach and island with lots of restaurants and bars. Good for a walk and for lying in the sun and relax.

If you are near Taormina, this island is a must see! The views are stunning and it is a fun experience to walk over to the old castle.

This beach is stunning and the island in the middle looks great we spent a few days here while in Sicily and didn't find it to be too busy however we did go in September at the end of season so that may be why, you have to pay for sunbed and the beach is a rocky one, that may not sound that bad but anyone who has tried to go into the sea on a rocky beach will understand how difficult it is. If you are going here my advise would be either to by some footwear for swimming, there are people selling it on the steps down to the beach, or try get in after walking to the end of the pier where the water is a little deeper so you'll be able to avoid standing on all the small rocks.
