This is a very beautiful and scenic beach, with a great landscape and clear waters. Very easy to get to from bus, as it drops you off right outside the entrance. This beach is stony so you will need aqua shoes. There are Excursions available for €10 P/P and a beach side restaurant. However the downsides are....


There is very little room on the beach and you would need to arrive early to get a spot...
Entering the beach is OK as you walk down the many steps - however bear this in mind as you will have to climb the steps on exiting...
The most annoying thing is the Taiwanese ladies constantly harassing you to get a massage - you are harassed circa 3 to 4 times every hour. This is a pity as it takes from a very scenic spot

Beautiful spot at the bottom of the cliffs. Perfect for a lazy lunch by crystal clear waters. Especially as you can take the cable car there and back if you are staying in Taormina.

This is so beautiful and easy to visit from Taormina - a cable car takes you to about 100 metres from the island.

We toured all through Sicily for 2 weeks and this was the most quaint and beautiful spot we came across. It is steeped with history and surprises. You can walk to the island that seems small and natural at first sight. After paying a small fee to enter, we walked many winding pathways and we were amazed by the rooms, pools and sitting areas that were built into the actual island.
There is a beach area just before you get into the island that is so gorgeous. If you bring a towel and bathing suit you will be able to enjoy the area fully.
There are many stairs to take to get down to the island so have decent shoes on!
There is a beautiful resort called La Plage you can stop by to cool off and relax after visiting the island. The view from the resort is of the island.
A must if you visit Taormina.
