Owner description: Taormina is a region that is rich in natural beauty and scenic beaches, especially Isola Bella that means "the beautiful island."
Reviewed 5 weeks ago

We visited this island on a day trip to Taormina, access to the cable car is straightforward, we parked car about 100yds from entrance at top in Taormina. Parking at the bottom looks like a real challenge so maybe this is the best way to visit.Ultimately this is a a rock approached via stony causeway which is generally under water. There is a fee of 4 euros to look around, but due to the generally poor condition of the pathways most are closed off. Stunning sea views etc.but nothing you cannot see elsewhere, the boat trips around the island seem reasonably priced - but boats are small and sea can be choppy. If you are in Taormina maybe worth a visit.

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.
